The Summer time here in Hong Kong is so hot and humid! I used to drink hot or warm water, but that becomes a bit too hard in Summer time. Sometimes it’s just so refreshing to have a glass of ice water! But for my husband, he always prefer a touch of taste, we used to have some Coke, packs of ice tea or juice inside the fringe. Of course, it is not that healthy to drink those all the time, too much sugar and some sort of unknown chemicals.
Last Sunday, while I was preparing the dinner, my husband suddenly jump inside the kitchen and need to make this drink, like right now. He said he just watched Jaime Olivier doing that on TV, orange peel with all the juice in, then lemon peel with all the juice in as well, and one tea spoon of turmeric powder, that’s it! We tried but maybe a bit too much of turmeric, so we made another one with less turmeric, just a few shake, yeah and it tastes fantastic and refreshing! So, from now on we decided to drink this and stopped buying any soda. Turmeric for sure is doing something good to our body, as everyone starting to realise how good and powerful turmeric is, together with orange and lemon which contain a lot of vitamins, it is not wrong to have this as a regular drink instead of Coca Cola.
The other day, I was helping to host this event in office, as I am one of the committee of the Green Team in our company. Instead of serving soda, I suggested to have drinks with different kind of fruits, which is going to fit the theme better. Of course one of the key highlight was this drink, but I’ve also created few others in order to provide some varieties. The second one I’ve made was with cucumber slices, lemon wedges and juice with turmeric powder. The third one simply with only lemon and orange slices. The forth one with strawberries and cucumber slices, and the last jug with strawberries and lemon slices. Everyone were so happy to try them out, some of them were even trying every single one to see how different the taste is, just like a wine tasting. Few of them came to me and would like to know how to make this highlighted drink, and they said for sure they are going to try this out at home!
I feel great to share this idea around and now we are having this drink everyday instead of drinking soda, which for sure I believe it’s much more healthy. Well, at least I feel much more refreshing!
