CBD is becoming a household name these days. The cannabinoid rose up from obscurity to become just as popular as THC, and is now regularly featured across headlines as the non-psychotropic cannabinoid of the future. CBD is known to be very safe, and can be consumed in a vast amount of ways. Users can choose from raw flowers, tinctures, oils, waxes, and much more. Scientific research has found a tremendous amount of medicinal and industrial applications for CBD, with the cannabinoid being embraced by many industries. CBD has found its way into all manner of products including food and drink items, cosmetics, and e-juices.

CBD oil is an extremely popular way to dose CBD. It’s practical to use and can easily be applied under the tongue at home and on-the-go. However, although effective, CBD oil doesn’t exactly taste amazing. This flavour can be disguised in many different ways to make the experience of taking CBD even more rewarding. One superb way to do so is to infuse CBD oil into a cocktail. Cocktails are tasty alcoholic beverages that set the atmosphere for many chilled-out social gatherings. The addition of CBD will bring feelings of relaxation to a new level, making it even easier to converse with the people around you and feel at ease.

SOURCING CBD FOR YOUR COCKTAILS

Although there are many different CBD products available, from tinctures to crystals and everything in between, the simplest to source and easiest to use out of all is CBD oil. These products come with a dropper, making it easy to administer the correct dose for the occasion. These small vials can be carried around easily in a bag and dropped into beverages that you buy at a cafe or bar. Plus, keeping one in your kitchen makes CBD readily available to add to any cocktail you are crafting.

Royal Queen Seeds provides a range of easy-to-use CBD oils with varying strengths to accommodate each user’s preferences. This oil is crafted using only organically grown hemp sourced within Europe. CBD is then extracted from this premium crop using state-of-the-art CO₂ extraction.

CBD COCKTAILS

Now that we’ve learned a little about CBD oil and where to easily source it, it's time to craft some tasty drinks. Cocktails are loaded with flavour and many different types of ingredients, so feel free to put your own spin on any of these recipes.

CBD BLOODY MARY

The Bloody Mary is an absolute classic when it comes to cocktails. This scrumptious combination of vodka, tomato juice, and spices is only enhanced and made even more enjoyable by adding a few drops of CBD oil. Plus, CBD might make the drink even more of a hangover cure. Adding alcohol to all of these drinks is entirely optional as the comforting effect of CBD is enough on its own for many people.

INGREDIENTS

  • CBD (dose according to bottle)
  • 3 dashes Worcestershire sauce
  • 150ml tomato juice
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 3 drops Tabasco sauce
  • Lemon peel
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Celery stalk
  • Vodka (according to desired strength; optional)

INSTRUCTIONS

Pour the Worcestershire sauce, tomato juice, lemon juice, Tabasco, vodka, and CBD oil in a shake and get shaking. CBD oil and water naturally separate, so be sure to go to town when mixing these recipes.

Proceed by pouring the mix into a large drinking glass, and add the lemon peel, salt, pepper, and celery as the finishing touches.

CBD BLOODY MARY

CBD COSMOPOLITAN

The cosmo is another cocktail perched upon the pantheon of most-popular drinks. Again, this is a vodka-based drink, and is loaded with fruity and citrus notes. The addition of CBD into this drink will make it even more pleasant to consume on a laid back summer's afternoon.

INGREDIENTS

  • 60ml vodka (optional)
  • 30ml cranberry juice
  • CBD oil (follow dose stated on bottle)
  • 20ml lime juice
  • 20ml triple sec (orange flavoured liqueur)
  • Several ice cubes
  • Orange twist as a garnish

INSTRUCTIONS

Begin by mixing the vodka, cranberry juice, CBD oil, lime juice, and triple sec together in a shaker. Again, be sure to shake thoroughly in order to encourage the oil and water to mix.

Next up, add the ice cubes and shake again thoroughly for around 30–40 seconds.

Pour the liquid through a strainer and into a drinking glass; add the orange twist as the finishing touch.

CBD COSMOPOLITAN

CBD ESPRESSO MARTINI

The CBD espresso martini is the drink to order when you’re in the mood for a little stimulation.

INGREDIENTS

  • 100g golden caster sugar
  • Ice
  • CBD oil (dose according to bottle)
  • 100ml vodka (again, optional)
  • 50ml freshly brewed coffee
  • 50ml coffee liqueur
  • 4 coffee beans

INSTRUCTIONS

First of all, you will need to make the sugar syrup for the cocktail. To do this, pour 50ml of water into a pan and place it over medium heat. Pour the sugar into the pan, stir until it dissolves, then bring the mixture to a boil.

Next, turn off the heat and let the mixture cool. Place two drinking glasses in the fridge to cool if you’re feeling particularly classy.

Take the cooled syrup and pour 1 tbsp into a shaker along with the vodka, CBD oil, espresso, coffee liqueur, and a few ice cubes. Shake vigorously until the shaker becomes cold to the touch.

Strain into a chilled glass and garnish with coffee beans.
