One of the most fun ways of enjoying CBD that is emerging and quickly becoming a favourite in the CBD community, are CBD cocktails. This is not the first time that users have added CBD to a delicious drink or food, but it definitely is an exciting and fun new way to enjoy CBD. Even bars and restaurants are hopping on the ‘CBD cocktail bandwagon’, and customers are simply falling in love with the delicious variety of drinks they offer.

The good news is, however, that you do not have to go to a bar to enjoy a delicious CBD cocktail, and can easily ‘whip one up’ in the comfort of your own home! With a few key ingredients, you will be able to create your own impressive CBD cocktails and enjoy them whenever you get a craving.

Making CBD Cocktails is Easy!

Making CBD cocktails is actually not as complicated as it may seem. Adding CBD to foods and drinks is actually extremely simple, and after you do it a couple of times, you'll become a real CBD cocktail expert.

So yes, making CBD cocktails is simple, BUT it is not as easy as just adding vodka to a couple drops of CBD oil. To have a delicious CBD cocktail, it is important to mix the right ingredients and bring together a handful of delicious flavours and tastes to make the perfect CBD cocktails. If you have the right ingredients however, you can definitely have a fun and easy time making some jaw-dropping CBD cocktails.

You’re Gonna Need One Magical Ingredient

CBD

Depending on the recipe, you're going to need a handful of unique ingredients, however, you are obviously going to need some CBD.

There are three types of CBD product that you can use in CBD cocktails, and these include CBD oil, CBD tinctures, and water soluble CBD. These three types of CBD products are recommended for CBD cocktails due to the fact that they will mix more efficiently with the alcohol itself, and also mix beautifully with other ingredients added.

Before you choose one of these CBD products to use in your cocktails, it is important to take into consideration that not all are exactly the same. CBD oil for example, due to the fact that it is oil-based, will most probably float at the top of the drink and not mix completely in with the alcohol. CBD tinctures, on the other hand, are alcohol-based, meaning that they will mix perfectly with any alcohol added to the cocktail. Water-soluble CBD products will also mix beautifully with the alcohol, due to the fact that they are made to mix easily with liquids.

So, if you would like to impress your friends with a CBD drink that has actual CBD oil floating beautifully at the top of your cocktail, use CBD oil. If you would like the CBD to mix in completely with the cocktail instead, use either CBD tincture or water-soluble CBD instead, and you will have beautifully mixed CBD cocktails.

        Are CBD Cocktails Perfect for You?

        Although CBD cocktails are rising in popularity and becoming the new big thing in the CBD community, they're not perfect for everyone. Yes, CBD cocktails are easy to make, fun to make and delicious, however, we cannot say that they are perfect for everyone. Because of this, we strongly advise you to ask your doctor if adding CBD tinctures, CBD oil, or other CBD products to your alcoholic beverages is perfect for you.

        We also strongly advised taking into consideration the dosages that you're using in your CBD cocktails. Recommended CBD dosages may vary depending on the individual, so we strongly advise you to ask your doctor or seek the help of a medical professional to find which dosage is perfect for you and your delicious CBD cocktails.

        If you do get a yes from your doctor however, we are confident that you are going to enjoy CBD cocktails like nothing else. The options of what you can do and create with CBD cocktails are endless, and we believe that with your creativity and your imagination, you will be able to create some of the most delicious CBD cocktails on your own and create incredible recipes in the comfort of your own home. Don't forget to have fun making CBD cocktails! Cheers!
