A well made G&T is my go-to cocktail. Despite its role in the rise of the British Empire in India, the G&T has stayed a Bombay favorite long after the British were finally driven the hell out. My dear friend Aaran has been making a damn good turmeric G&T for years, and it's always the highlight of dinners at his house. My version is a bit simpler, brighter, more turmeric-forward and highly quarantine friendly.

Check boxes to add ingredients to cart



  • 1 lemon - only 1/2 zested with a microplane but fully juiced
  • 1/2 tsp Pragati Turmeric
  • 1/4 tsp grated ginger (optional)
  • 2 shots (3oz-4oz depending on how stiff you like it) good gin (I like St. George and Stranger & Sons)
  • 6-10oz of high quality tonic (I love Fever Tree and Svami)
  • 4-6 cubes of ice



  1. In a cocktail shaker (I use a mason jar with a lid), mix the lemon zest, juice, turmeric, ginger (if using), gin and ice. Seal the lid tightly shut and shake vigorously for about 20 seconds. 
  2. Open the jar and use a fine mesh strainer or tea strainer to strain your vibrant infused gin into two glasses (worth breaking out your nicest glasses, it just feels better IMHO).
  3. Top with tonic. I like my G&T pretty stiff & spicy so I use about 3oz tonic, but if you’d rather mellow it out, you can always add more!
