Why Mix CBD and Alcohol?
When it comes to unwinding after a long day, CBD is known to help jumpstart the unwinding process.
Alcohol (specifically cocktails), is also known to be a favorite for those trying to unwind and enjoy a happy hour or nightcap with their peers.
When you mix CBD and alcohol not only does it add extra flavor, but also naturally stimulates your internal endocannabinoid system.
So if you’re going to enjoy a cocktail, why not infuse it with CBD to get some extra added benefits?
So now that we have you convinced, let’s jump right in and start making some classic cocktails infused with CBD!
Medicinal Moscow Mule
The classic Moscow Mule gets even better with a bit of lemon flavored CBD tincture. CBD itself has a very earthy flavor naturally, but with notes of lemon to compliment the drink’s citrus and herbal ingredients, it works perfectly.
- 2 oz. of your favorite vodka
- 1 oz. of fresh lime juice
- ½ cup of Ginger Beer
- Crushed ice
- Mint leaves
- 1 lime wedge for garnish
- 2-3 drops of lemon flavored CBD tincture
Step 1: Fill a copper mug (or glass) with crushed ice (or cubes)
Step 2: Combine 2 oz. of vodka & 1 oz of lime juice and pour into mug
Step 3: Top off with ginger beer
Step 4: Stir your concoction
Step 5: Squeeze your lime wedge and throw the remaining lime wedge in to the drink
Step 6: Add 2-3 drops of CBD tincture using the dropper
Step 7: Add mint garnish
And that’s it! Go ahead and sip away.
