It’s an energizing drink for staying ‘woke’ in a super-charged, political climate, while keeping the spice ‘real’ with pumpkin puree.

    I wouldn’t have thought of using garam masala in a drink but it makes so much sense! Thanks for that eye opener, very creative idea, would work for a spiced cake too!
