3 Essential CBD Cocktails (and a Mocktail) for the Dog Days of Summer

 

As we approach both the dog days and the last days of summer (why are they always the hottest?) we’ve come to realize that there’s nothing like a refreshing drink to keep us cool and balanced. In the spirit (see what we did there?) of chilling both our mind and body, we asked local bartender Laura Lynch to come up with three easy-as-they-are-delicious cocktails (and one mocktail) for you to try at home.

 

 

Gimlet Sureau

Ingredients:

  • 1 1/2 oz gin
  • 1/2 oz Elderflower Liqueur
  • 1 half-dropper of Equilibria CBD oil  (0.5ml)
  • 1/2 oz simple syrup
  • 3/4 oz lime juice

Directions:

Combine in shaker tin. Add ice and shake, then strain into coupe glass. Float a lime wheel to garnish.

 

 

Lucky Jade

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 oz Chartreuse
  • 1 half-dropper of Equilibria CBD oil (0.5ml)
  • 1/2 oz simple syrup
  • 3/4 oz lime juice

Directions:

Add ice and shake vigorously. Strain into a champagne flute or coupe, top with sparkling wine.

 

 

Caipirinha Melancia

Ingredients:

  • 1 whole lime cut into 6 wedges
  • 1 half dropper Equilibria CBD oil (0.5ml)
  •  3/4 oz simple syrup
  • 1 1/2oz cachaca
  • 1 1/2 oz watermelon juice

Directions:

Put lime wedges into shaker tin with simple syrup and Equilibria CBD oil. Muddle gently, pressing the limes until they are fully juiced. Add cachaca, watermelon juice and ice. Shake vigorously and pour, limes and all, into a double old-fashioned glass. Add a lime wheel and mint to garnish. For a delicious “mocktail” just take out the cachaca! Yum!

While these are delicious enough to drink an entire pitcher full, don’t forget to drink responsibly. Cheers to a wonderful summer!
