Ah, the dog days of summer. As the thermometer rises and the smell of barbeque wafts through the air, the mind can’t help but long for the ice cold refreshment of a summer cocktail. And while little could improve the tangy sweet sensation or thirst quenching glory of your favorite adult beverage, perhaps a splash of CBD just might.
Well, you’re in luck! Look no further than our water soluble broad spectrum berry flavored tincture. An ideal complement to nearly any cocktail. Yet, in the spirit of the bounty of summer, allow me to share a recipe for one of my favorites:
Berry Berry Gin Fizz-
(servers up to 8 adults)
A 6oz container of blackberries
½ cup of sugar
2 cups of your favorite gin
8 milliliters of berry flavored Active CBD
1 cup fresh lime juice
8 sprigs of Thai basil or sweet basil
Puree the blackberries and sugar in a blender, then let stand. Stir it occasionally until the sugar dissolves. It should take about 10 mins. Strain the puree through a fine-mesh sieve into a pitcher. This should result in about a ¾ cup of juice puree. Discard the seeds that should be leftover in the sieve. Stir the gin, berry flavored CBD, and lime juice into the pitcher. Divide evenly among glasses filled with ice and top with soda. As a final touch, pop a sprig of basil in the glass as a garnish and flavor enhancer, and serve.
I truly hope you enjoy this equal parts refreshing and relaxing summer cocktail as much as I have. And please, drink responsibly.
