Four CBD cocktail recipes to try at home

Cocktail with CBD

Recently, a new field of creative experimentation has opened up for cannabis drinks. With the compatibility of oil-soluble cannabinoids and alcohol, the concept of CBD cocktails has become a simple reality with so many possibilities for consumers.

If you are interested in experimenting and want to learn how to make your own CBD cocktails at home, read on because we have just the thing for you. In this article we will explore the basics of combining CBD and alcohol, providing you with four classic CBD cocktail recipes to try.

Before we begin, what is a cocktail?

A cocktail is a mixed alcoholic beverage that contains several complementary ingredients. Cocktails have evolved considerably over the years and have given rise to mixology, the art and practice of creating classic cocktails with an innovative approach. Typically, cocktails include at least one spirit as a base, or a strong spirit with about 35-50 percent alcohol by volume, and other tasty ingredients such as fruit juices, spices, bitters, and garnishes for a refreshing drinking experience.

What is the taste of CBD Cocktails?

The use of CBD oil  and CBD crystals  is common for enriching cocktails; usually, cannabidiol does not significantly alter the taste of your cocktail, being mainly tasteless, with slight notes of chlorophyll. The intensity of flavor can vary depending on the amount used; the higher the amount of CBD, the more the chlorophyll flavor and herbaceous notes emerge in your cocktail.

However, this slight aroma can enrich and make the flavor of the drink more interesting; it can amplify flavors and aromas that you may not have experienced before!  If you will be using pure CBD oil, we recommend trying it with gin, as it will enhance the earthy, herbal notes of CBD.

If you wish to experience the taste of legal cannabis instead, you could try hemp cocktails, made with the shredded cannabis  or with cannabis infusions. In these drinks, the hemp flavor is much more present. Remember to always use light cannabis, otherwise you can take serious health risks by mixing THC and alcohol (if you want to learn more about the difference between THC and CBD read this old article).

What doses of CBD to use for cocktails?

There is no specific quantity to follow for CBD cocktails because, as with all recipes and products containing this substance, it is important to always consider the unique characteristics of each individual!

In fact, each person has a different tolerance and sensitivity to CBD intake, influenced by factors such as weight and age. Therefore, we at NativaCBD  always recommend starting with a low dose and gradually increasing. To make sure you don’t get the dosage wrong, you can follow the recommended doses: for cocktails, about 15 mg of CBD is recommended. Later, if you want to get more benefits, you can increase the dose or reduce it according to your needs.
