Infusing food and drink with CBD is as easy as throwing in a few drops. With a CBD oil or tincture, you can add a kick of CBD to any treat, entree or even your morning coffee! But even better than all that is the CBD cocktail. Unlike mixing THC and alcohol, CBD provides a mellow, relaxed feeling. CBD cocktails are super simple to make at home, too—no bartending skills required.

First, acquire a high-quality CBD oil or tincture with measured dropper. This way you know exactly how much CBD is in each drink. Then, pick a cocktail! You really can choose whatever cocktail or mixed drink recipe you like, but some may turn out better than others depending on flavor profile. For example, if your cocktail of choice is rich or frothy, a CBD oil will blend with the flavors nicely. For others, like the mint julep below, a CBD tincture will jive better with the alcohol. This is because the CBD is suspended in alcohol in a tincture, making it perfect for our special beverages.

You can make the drinks as strong as you’d like (both with alcohol and CBD) depending on your tolerance. If you typically don’t consume CBD, start small with a small amount in your cocktail and see how it feels. If you feel it wasn’t enough, make them a little stronger next time.

If you’re looking for a fun activity that’ll bring all your friends together, play around with making your own CBD-infused cocktails! You have total freedom to get creative, and the CBD might just help that along. If you need an idea, though, the mint julep is a refreshing springtime drink that blends perfectly with CBD.
