Jamu Shot and Spritzer - A Woman's Tonic
Prep time
Cook time
Total time
Jamu can either be enjoyed as a shot at breakfast, or mixed with carbonated mineral water for a nice evening spritzer.
Serves: 4 cups
  • ½ cup sliced dried turmeric (or fresh, if you have access to it)
  • ½ cup sliced ginger
  • 4 cups filtered water
  • 2 tablespoons lime juice
  • 1-3 teaspoons honey
  • Carbonated mineral water for serving
  • Orange slices for serving
How To Make
  1. Combine the ginger and turmeric in a blender along with the water. Puree until smooth.
  2. Add turmeric-ginger mixture to the pot and bring to a simmer. Once it simmers, turn down the heat to the lowest possible and let the mixture simmer for 25 minutes.
  3. Remove the mixture from the heat and let cool for about 10 minutes before straining it into the jar. Stir in the lime juice and the honey. Adding more honey if you prefer things on the sweeter side. Let the mixture cool completely before storing in the refrigerator.
  4. To drink as a shot, just add 2-3 tablespoons to a glass and enjoy. To make a spritzer, add 2-3 tablespoons to a large glass along with a few orange slices and ice. Top with carbonated mineral water.
Equipment: blender, stainless steel pot, and a large tempered glass jar (like a mason jar)
Storage Instructions: The jamu can be stored in the refrigerator for up to two weeks.
