As the cools of winter subside and the budding flowers signal that spring is on the horizon, it’s about that time to let loose and have a little fun! What’s more fun than a nice, refreshing cocktail? Perhaps, a nice, refreshing cocktail infused the wellness industry’s latest golden child: CBD oil tincture. Cannabinoids are a miracle compound with soothing, healing properties that can turn any simple drink to the next level and create a much-needed effect of relaxation and equanimity. Here are the top three tastiest CBD seltzer water-based craft cocktails!
CBD Citrus Seltzer Spritz Cocktail
1 oz. vodka
2 oz. sparkling wine
2 oz. CBD seltzer water
½ cup orange juice, orange zest
This recipe is really simple and is perfect for those consumers who want a refreshing, tangy drink to help compliment their cannabinoid enthusiasm. As a classic French Spritz, it is a sparkling-wine based cocktail, where the CBD seltzer serves as a boast.
Simply add all ingredients, save for the orange juice and zest, into a double rocks glass filled with ice. Stir until well combined. Add in the half cup of orange juice or your choice of citrus fruit (lemon, lime and tangerine works great as well) and top with the zest of the fruit and stir lightly to combine but keep a bit of differentiation. Top with a slice of fruit and enjoy your calming CBD-infused Americanized French Spritz.
Sour CBD Cocktail
1 tbsp. pink sea salt
2 oz. fresh-pressed lime juice
2 oz. tequila blanco
½ oz. agave nectar
½ ounce of CBD seltzer water
1 drop of CBD oil tincture
2-3 mint leaves
This one might take a little more upper body strength! Set the CBD tincture and mint leaves to the side and incorporate all ingredients into a cocktail shaker filled 1/3 of the way with ice. Shake for no less than a full minute: vigorously.
Fine strain the mixture into an appropriate container and add the single drop from the CBD tincture.
Proceed to emulsify with an emulsifier for no less than 5 seconds. Be sure to not over emulsify.
Transfer the mixture to an appropriate glass (whatever floats your boat, it’s all going the same place) and garnish with the mint leaves and salt the rim with some. Preferably three to make a little mock hemp plant, but two will work just fine.
CBD-infused Vodka Cranberry
3 oz. cranberry juice
1.5 oz. vodka
1 can flavored CBD seltzer water
4 organic cranberries (sugared)
1 cup ice
This is a classic with a modern twist! A vodka cranberry is a staple for any spring or summer gathering. Instead of sparkling water, for this recipe we’re replacing it with a nice CBD seltzer water; particularly, the lemon-lavender or guava flavor compliment the organic cranberries deliciously.
Add the vodka, cranberry juice and half of the ice into a shaker. Shake for no less than 30 seconds. Strain the mixture into a container and pour over the remaining half cup of ice and top off with the CBD seltzer water of your choosing. Make sure not to mix too much. Add in a few cranberries and slices of guava or lemon, depending on the flavor, and enjoy!
