CBD Cocktails: 5 tasty CBD Infused Drinks for the Holiday Season

December 12, 2020 9:58 pm Categorised in:

Impress your guests with these 5 delicious (and simple!) CBD Cocktail recipes! These CBD infused drinks range from sweet & fruity to spiced & complex, depending on your taste! Most of these recipes are easy to make as alcoholic cocktails or as mocktails, and they’ve also got the added bonus of all the benefits of CBD! 

When making a holiday CBD cocktail, you could use different kinds of CBD products to add into the mix. Our two favorite ways of adding it to our CBD infused drinks are CBD Oil or our CBD Honey, which taste amazing in pretty much every cocktail. In this blog, we’ll give you two options – one with CBD Oil, and one with CBD Honey, so you can follow along no matter what product you’re working with! Feel free to use any other GRH product because the ones we suggest in this blog might not work for you. That’s what’s great about using CBD in the kitchen – you can do tons of fun experiments and figure out what you really like, and what you don’t! 

We know that the holidays can definitely cause a lot of unwanted tension and discomfort, so Christmas & Thanksgiving are the perfect times to bust out the CBD infused drinks! In our opinion, the season can sometimes bring as much stress as it does joy – and CBD is great at helping deal with stress! Want to find out more about using CBD for holiday stress?
