Pour 1Tbsp chili salt onto a plate. Wet the rims of your serving glasses, and dip the rims into the chilli salt, to coat the edge. Set the glasses aside until needed.

Add the orange juice, ice cubes, tequila, turmeric and a small pinch of chilli salt to a blender, and blend until smooth.

Divide the mixture between two glasses, and serve immediately.

Chefs tips:

– For a more concentrated drink, replace the ice cubes with cubes of frozen orange juice

– The tequila can be omitted for a refreshing alcohol-free drink, perfect for dry January.
