Infuse Your Hard Seltzer With CBD and Essential Oils
Hard seltzers are the rage right now. everyone seems to be loving them this summer, and we here at Broad Essentials are no different. After months of social distancing, we have tried just about every brand of hard seltzer and then some. Some were good. Some were excellent. And some were downright horrible. What we did find though… is that many can be turned into a fantastic tasting beverage that can boost your energy or enhance your calm. All it takes is a little help from mother nature.
Adding CBD to hard drinks so a relatively new concept and with so many new hard seltzers coming out every few months, adding a little boost to the wretched ones seemed appropriate. Adding a little boost to the good ones was even better!
Here are a few of the ones we really liked that can be infused into nearly any brand and still taste great. This post covers our favorites. Our next post will focus on turning some of those crummy ones into winners!
*Using our 97/3 formula, each drink would have 4.5mg of CBD, or 1.5mg per drop. Using our 90/10 formula, each drink would contain 15mg, or 5mg per drop.
2 drops Lemon + 1 Drop Sweet Orange
This one not only adds a great citrus flavor but is uplifting and energizing. The blend of sweet orange and lemon add a great citrus twist to any seltzer lacking flavor or with a heavy sugar substitute flavor. Can be added to nearly any fruit or floral seltzer.
1 drop Peppermint + 1 drop Lemon+ 1 drop Grapefruit
Juice up that hard drink with peppermint, Rosemary and Sweet Orange to make a great tasting and exhilarating beverage.
2 drops Peppermint + 1 Drop Spearmint
Add a minty boost that will invigorate your senses, improve your blood circulation, give you a mental boost and help keep any nausea or queasiness at bay. we have been enjoying then after work to get our minds off the hectic day. Mintvigorate lives up to its name and gives you a little extra energy to finish off the day in a good mood.
2 drop Lavender + 1 Drop Spearmint
The relaxer is a more minty, floral blend with relaxing benefits. We add the spearmint to give compliment the lavender and give your senses a boost!
These recipes can be amended to suit your taste, but we don't recommend adding more that 1-3 drops per drink due to the concentration of the essential oils.
