4 CBD Cocktails To Impress Your Guests With

Move over CBD gummies. Step aside gourmet CBD chocolates; the latest growing fad is CBD cocktails! Many bars and even coffee shops are jumping on this new trend as more states relax their laws on the cannabis plant. 

If you are unfamiliar with the topic, CBD or cannabidiol is the non- stoner component in the marijuana plant. It doesn’t get you stoned and has a more calming effect and anti-inflammatory prospects. It’s gotten a lot of buzz in the medical field for this beneficial fact. 

You might think mixing CBD and alcohol is a safe thing to do? The answer is yes, and the effects are quite surprising-creating a mellow, almost calming buzz . Bartenders have concocted the right blends using low alcohol level spirits in the likes of vermouths or sherries as their base, which balances and blends with the CBD flavor well, helping create some tasty earthy-bound drinks. 

This way, you can have a drink or two after a hard day’s work and still feel ready to go in the morning. Here are four cocktails that you can create yourself and are sure to impress next time you have a small gathering.

This one requires some prep time, but it’s pretty simple and yummy! 

First, make some lavender syrup. All you do is take water and sugar in a saucepan over high, medium heat. Let it rise to a boil then reduce to a simmer. Let it simmer for about 5 minutes then take off the heat. It should now be a syrup texture. Add lavender and let it soak in for about 10 minutes- strain into a container with a lid. If you have any leftovers, the syrup can last for ten days in the fridge. You can also make this ahead of time, so it is ready when your guests arrive. Let us learn how to make this baby!
