This is an ancient ayurvedic medicine and drink in India, said to strengthen the immune system, heal a sore throat and aid when you get a cold amongst many other things.
I am not saying that it works for sure, but at least this drink is super comforting, specially on colder days, since the turmeric brings a warm heat to your body.
The colour is beautiful and golden, hence the name golden milk, also called turmeric milk or as they call it in India: Haldi Doodh, meaning simply turmeric milk.
Edit: please note that you of course have to use a decent and good quality turmeric, the cheap supermarket turmeric is very likely bitter as hell and wont get you anywhere, a good quality turmeric is neither bitter or bad tasting, but axtually slightly sweet, mellow and far from bitter, so use that, it will be amazing !
