Cocktail of the month: The White Linen at Turmeric: Flavors of India

Don’t be put off by the oonsta thunderbeats shaking the sidewalk outside Turmeric; inside, the music is muted, turning the restaurant into a fun Fremont East people-watching fishbowl with a soundtrack. Class up the gawking with The White Linen. It presents just like the name: crisp and refined. The base is floral Hendrick’s Gin, sweetened with elderflower and tinged with lavender. Classy, sure, but not stuffy: Go ahead, no judgment here, have another.
