Combine turmeric, sugar, and water in a sauce pan and bring to a boil on high heat. Reduce to low-medium and cook for 1 hour. Strain out the turmeric and store in an airtight container in the fridge.
Mango Aguas Frescas
Blend mangos and 1 cup water in high speed blender until smooth.
Pour through a strainer into a pitcher or mixing bowl. Add the other cup of water and mix.
Stir in the lime and orange juices and turmeric simple syrup. Taste and adjust flavoring as desired.
Take a lime wedge and run it along the rims of the glasses. Roll the rims through Tajin seasoning that is sprinkled out on a plate. Pour the Mango Aguas Frescas into the glasses and sprinkle a little Tajin seasoning on top of the drink too.
Or you can pour the Mango Aguas Frescas into ice cube trays or Popsicle molds and freeze for a frozen treat.
Prep time does not include making turmeric simple syrup.
