5 Delicious CBD Cocktails to Make at Home

It is very simple to make cannabidiol-infused drinks at home and enjoy the full benefits of cannabidiol. You can buy CBD oil, tinctures, or isolate and mix it into all kinds of liquids. CBD even goes well with your morning coffee. You can make smoothies with CBD as well. Yet if you wanted something more interesting, try out a CBD cocktail. Below are some of the best CBD cocktail recipes that you can make at home.

CBD Daiquiri

Daiquiri is a simple cocktail made with rum, some citrus juice, and sugar or a sweetener. You can add a fruity twist to it by adding some frozen strawberries to the cocktail. Adding a little CBD to the mix will give you the cannabidiol dose you need without changing its flavor.

  • Rum – 1½ ounce
  • Lime juice – ¾ ounce
  • Sugar syrup – 1 ounce (2 parts sugar and 1 part water)
  • Strawberry – 1
  • Crushed ice
  • CBD oil – as required

Preparation:

Making the daiquiri cocktail is simple and sublime. Add all the ingredients in a blender or food processor. Blend until completely smooth. You can add the CBD oil after the blending as well. Pour the cocktail in a glass and garnish with a piece of lime.

CBD Mint Julep

Mint julep is a classic bourbon-based cocktail. It is known for being the signature drink of the Kentucky Derby. You can enjoy the drink anytime, but it’s best as a relaxing evening drink. Adding your daily dosage of CBD oil drops to the cocktail will make it even better.

Crush the mint leaves in the bottom of the cocktail glass. Add sugar to it and mix well. Pour a little carbonated water and CBD oil drops to it. Stir well and fill up to three-fourth of the glass with crushed ice. Top with bourbon and add more carbonated water to fill the glass. Stir the cocktail and garnish with the mint sprig.

CBD Sangria

Sangria is a Spanish wine-based cocktail, made with red wine and some chopped fruits. It has a rich, fruity, and earthy flavor, which can work to conceal the taste of CBD oil for you perfectly. That makes this flavorful cocktail a great choice for those who find it difficult to consume CBD directly. 

Ingredients:

  • Red wine – 4 ounce
  • Orange liquor – 2 tbsp
  • Raspberries – a few
  • Orange slices
  • Club soda
  • CBD oil – as required

Preparation:

Crush the raspberries in the bottom of the cocktail glass and add the orange liquor to it. Mix well and add red wine. Stir until the ingredients are combined and add your required dose of CBD oil drops to the glass. Use a bar spoon to mix the ingredients and top with club soda. Add a few raspberries and orange slices to garnish.

CBD Moscow Mule

Moscow Mule can never be left out when talking about cocktails and that applies to CBD-based ones as well. You can easily make the vodka-based cocktail at home with some spicy ginger beer and lime juice. Adding CBD oil drops to it will further elevate the flavor of the cocktail. You can enjoy it any time of the year.

Ingredients:

  • Vodka – 1½ ounce
  • Lime juice – ½ ounce
  • Ginger beer – ½ cup
  • Ice cubes
  • Lime wedges

Pour the vodka, ginger beer, and lime juice into a mug and mix well. Add your preferred dose of CBD in the mug and stir well to blend the ingredients. Top that with some ice cubes and lime wedges to garnish. The cocktail is traditionally served in copper mugs, so use one if you have. Else, you can go with the usual cocktail glass.

CBD Godfather

The Godfather is a time-honored cocktail made with Scotch whisky and amaretto liquor. It is rich in flavor and perfectly conceals the taste of CBD. That makes it a good option for whisky lovers to consume their daily dose of cannabidiol with some deliciousness. You can even add some cola to the mix and enhance the taste of the cocktail.

Ingredients:

  • Scotch whisky – 1 ounce
  • Amaretto liqueur – ½ ounce
  • Cola
  • Ice cubes
  • Orange slices
  • CBD oil – as required

Preparation:

Fill three-fourth of an old-fashioned glass with ice cubes and pour Scotch whisky and amaretto liquor. Add your preferred dose of CBD oil or tincture and stir the ingredients well with a bar spoon. Top with some cold cola and garnish with some orange slices. You can increase the dose of CBD and balance that with cola. That will make sure that you can enjoy the drink as much as possible.
