The Georgians loved to spice up their rather bland British fare with new flavours from across the Empire.

And colourful turmeric from India was one such spice which quickly became highly sought after for the pantries of the Gentry and well-to-do.

Its bright yellow hue and bitter citrus and fiery ginger character led to its inclusion in Hannah Glasse’s seminal 1747 cookbook.

So for this weekend’s Sunday Brunch tipple we’ve created this turmeric laced Bloody Mary which bursts from the glass with sizzling spice and exotic twang and emphasises the distinctive taste of the Broken Clock Vodka.


50 ml Broken Clock Vodka
15 ml Lemon Juice
1 tsp Turmeric Powder
½ tsp Horseradish Sauce
Pinch Salt and Pepper
5 dashes Worcestershire Sauce
4 dashes Tabasco Sauce
150 ml Fresh Tomato Juice
Turmeric Powder Garnish


Start by coating a highball glass. You can use water for this but we found it more precise (and adhesive) to rub a slice of lemon down the glass and to then sprinkle the turmeric from a height to get the desired effect.

Now combine the cocktail ingredients in a mixing jar with ice. Stir thoroughly to dissolve any clumps of the turmeric and horseradish. Next add plenty of ice to the glass and add the cocktail.
