“I’m really interested in working with ingredients that have some form of potential medicinal value to them,” says Pope, who created this twist on a Pineapple Rickey using a cilantro-pineapple-turmeric syrup. “Turmeric is one of those wonderful ingredients that you feel is going to cure your every ailment.”  While that may not actually be the case with this virgin Rickey, Pope says it will at least taste like you’re putting something good into your body. The best part is, this drink looks every bit the part of a thirst-quenching tiki cocktail, with pineapple leaves and dehydrated fruit as a garnish.
