More and more people are now using CBD or cannabidiol today. According to statistics, 14% of Americans use CBD products for treating different types of health conditions such as chronic pain, anxiety, insomnia, arthritis, headache, and even stress. Some people also depend on CBD for their overall health and wellness.
Regular use of CBD products allows you to enjoy several health benefits, but using the same products over and over again can become a chore. Routinely administering CBD oil under your tongue, for example, can make the experience tiresome and boring. This can eventually become the reason why you’ll lose the motivation to continue using CBD-infused products.
If you have successfully incorporated CBD into your lifestyle and you’re now looking for ways to enjoy the product better, consider making these CBD cocktail recipes:
1. CBD Tranquil Mint Julep
Aside from enjoying all of the health benefits of CBD, this CBD cocktail recipe will also make you feel refreshed and have minty breath. This drink is very easy to make and only requires simple ingredients, as well.
To create the CBD tranquil mint julep, you just need a few ounces of bourbon, simple syrup, mint leaves, organic peppermint essential oils, and one milliliter of mint CBD tincture. You just need to mix all of the ingredients together, add mint leaves for garnish, and serve.
2. CBD Moscow Mule
If you can’t stand the strong flavor of CBD, trying out this cocktail recipe can be a great solution. This recipe utilizes the freshness of ginger and can complement well with the natural flavor of CBD. This drink also uses some of the freshest citrus fruits, which is perfect for toning down the strong flavor of CBD.
For this CBD cocktail recipe, simply mix two ounces of Vodka, one ounce of fresh lime juice, and about 100 ounces of CBD ginger syrup. Mix all of the ingredients together and pour them in an ice-filled glass. Depending on your preference, you can add in some mint sprig and a lime wedge for garnish.
3. CBD Dirty Martini
Nobody needs a reason to drink a glass of martini. This classic cocktail drink is traditionally made with vermouth, gin, and garnished with a lemon or olive. Because of the simplicity of the ingredients used and the rich flavor it has, it’s no wonder why this drink has been known as one of the best mixed alcoholic beverages. But are you aware that you can actually enjoy this drink with a little CBD twist?
You can create your own CBD dirty martini at home by mixing together dry gin, extra dry vermouth, and green olive cocktail brine. For the garnish, throw in a dash of fresh cracked black pepper, green olive, and a generous amount of CBD oil.
4. CBD Gin And Tonic
Another classic cocktail drink is the gin and tonic. This drink is created by mixing gin and tonic water together and then pouring the mixture into a glass with a large amount of ice. Traditionally, this drink is made by mixing one part gin to three parts tonic water, but this ratio can change depending on your preference.
For a unique twist to the traditional gin and tonic drink, make yours using CBD. For this CBD cocktail recipe, you just need to combine gin and hemp-infused beverages together and use lime wheel and rosemary sprig for garnish. For the best drinking experience, use products that contain at least 10 milligrams of CBD.
Throwing a party can be a great way to break the monotony of working six days a week. Being surrounded by your friends and family, and just catching up with them will surely keep stress at bay. But aside from inviting a huge crowd for your party, serving the classic sangria drink with a CBD twist can make your event even better.
Sangria is a favorite party drink because it’s cheap and very easy to make. This drink is also very pleasing to look at because this is served with delicious slices of fruits. You can make your own version of sangria by slicing pieces of apples, limes, lemons, and oranges and mixing some orange juice, cranberry juice, red grape juice, and lemon CBD tincture together. Pour all of the ingredients in an ice-cold pitcher for a better drinking experience.
6. CBD Pisco Sour
As mentioned, CBD naturally has a strong flavor and taste. And while this flavor can be very appealing to some, it may be too strong to be enjoyed for others. If you’re one of the latter, spend some time making CBD pisco sour. The ingredients used for this drink offsets the strong flavor of CBD, making the drink more flavorful and sweet.
The CBD pisco sour will only require you to mix three ounces of brandy, two ounces of CBD infused simple syrup, two ounces of lime juice, and one egg white. Once all of the ingredients are pureed and smooth, you can pour the drink into an ice-filled glass.
7. CBD Margarita
A margarita is a cocktail made from lime juice, tequila, and orange liqueur. Depending on the preference, this drink can be served with a lot of ice or no ice at all. This is a delicious drink that is very easy to recreate.
For you to make this classic drink with an added CBD twist at home, simply mix one cup of lime juice, and one cup of Grand Marnier to one teaspoon of CBD infused simple syrup. Put all of the ingredients in a blender, mix them until you see a smooth consistency, and then serve in a sale rimmed glass.
Talk To A Pro
Although the body naturally produces cannabinoids, the amount isn’t enough to enhance a person’s bodily functions. This is one of the reasons why using CBD can be very helpful.
However, before you decide to try out some CBD cocktail recipes or any CBD products in general, it’s best if you talk to your doctor about it first. CBD is safe for consumption but can result in side effects when used with other medications. Consult your doctor so you can only experience the benefits of the product and avoid any health risks.
