The idea for the Roman Charity came to Gui Jaroschy of the Broken Shaker while making toast.
He happened to be using avocado honey mixed with turmeric and moringa seed, whose flavors, naturally, he parlayed into orgeat. First he mixed almond milk with turmeric, moringa and wildflower honey to create a bright yellow hue and dark, intense flavor. To give it a “Miami-style brightness,” he layered Dominican passionfruit liqueur with Dutch gin. St-Germain united the fruit with a hit of floral sweetness. A loose twist on the Saturn, the tiki classic, the Roman Charity is a rich, spiced cocktail that’s undeniably tropical, yet simultaneously comforting.
In a medium saucepan over low heat, bring the almond milk to a simmer. Grate the turmeric into the almond milk and add the moringa seeds and simmer for 5 minutes. Add the honey and stir well to fully combine. Fine strain the mixture, let it cool and store in a covered container.
