DIY CBD Cocktail (and Mocktail!) Recipe

It seems like CBD is in everything these days, between being able to get a shot of CBD oil in your cup at the local coffee shop in the morning to getting a splash in your cocktail in the evening. I know at least here in Vermont it seems possible to get something CBD-infused at every one of your meals, drinks, and snacks while you’re out and about. But what about when we’re at home? What if we don’t feel like dropping $15 on a fancy CBD cocktail after a hard day’s work, or just want to be able to sip it in our jammies in front of the fire? And what if we don’t actually want the booze, but still all the flavor and fun of a mixed drink? What if we want our drink to be more like the cocktails and sodas of old, infused with rooty and aromatic herbs to promote our health? Enter the DIY CBD Cocktail (and Mocktail)! These drinks are so easy you’ll be left wondering why you ever spent so much on your infused beverages. So invite your friends over for that dinner party you’ve been meaning to have and show off your kitchen witching skills. And in case the words “dinner party” make you feel anxious, check out this fabulous article on why we should host more crappy dinner parties. Trust me, nobody is gonna care how messy your livingroom is when they have a handcrafted CBD cocktail in their hands.

Both of these recipes are made using CannaBitters, a potent potion of Burdock, Gentian, Artichoke, Calamus, Ginger, and Orange Peel tinctures blended with 100% Vermont CBD-infused honey. These bitters contain herbs traditionally used to support good digestion (making them a great pre- or post-prandial indulgence), and make a fantastic sub in any drink that calls for cocktail bitters. With the already honey blended in, you even get to skip the traditional step where you muddle the bitters and sugar together in your glass.
