The Ultimate Stress Reliever: Crafting a Perfect CBD-Infused “Me-Time” Cocktail

The daily hustle can brew a storm of stress, and while jetting off to the Caribbean isn’t feasible every weekend, a well-crafted cocktail can work wonders for easing your stress and clearing your mind. For the stress-filled men and women seeking the perfect recipe for relaxation, the Absolute Stress (Reliever) cocktail with a splash of CBD might just be your flavorful escape!

Why CBD in Your Cocktail?

CBD, or cannabidiol, the non-psychoactive component of cannabis, has surged in popularity for its potential in reducing anxiety and promoting relaxation.

The interaction between CBD and your body’s endocannabinoid system can enhance the calming effects of well-known sedatives like the coconut rum and vodka in our Absolute Stress (Reliever). However, it’s important to ensure that the CBD you choose is of high quality and derived from reputable sources. Look for products that have undergone rigorous testing and come with clear dosage information.

The Art of Mixology: Crafting Your Stress Reliever with Precision

Mixology is an art. Each ounce you pour, each ingredient you choose, impacts the final harmony. Here’s how to create your own oasis in a glass:

  • Selecting the Right CBD Product: When choosing a CBD tincture or CBD Essential Oil, opt for a flavor profile that complements the rest of your cocktail – precision in flavor is key. If you prefer your drinks on the sweeter side, a berry or vanilla CBD could be a delightful complement.
  • Balancing the Ingredients: If you’re using a pre-mixed CBD tincture, be mindful of the balance it adds to your drink. You don’t want the CBD to overpower the other flavors or, on the flip side, get lost in the mix. Start with a small dose and adjust to taste.
  • The Mixing Method: When infusing CBD, it’s generally best to mix it with the liquid ingredients before shaking. This ensures an even distribution of the CBD throughout the cocktail, leading to a consistent experience with each sip.

The Absolute Stress (Reliever) Recipe – Reimagined with CBD

Ingredients:

  • 1 1/2 ounces Coconut Rum
  • 1/2 ounce Vodka
  • 1/2 ounce Peach Vodka (or Peach Schnapps)
  • 1 ounce Orange Juice
  • 1 ounce Pineapple Juice
  • 1 ounce Cranberry Juice
  • 1 mL high-quality CBD oil or tincture (flavor of your choice)

Preparation:

  1. Begin by infusing your cocktail with CBD. Measure out the desired dose of CBD and combine it with the coconut rum in a separate mixing glass. Swirl or stir gently to fully combine.
  2. In a shaker filled with ice, combine the vodka, peach vodka or schnapps (if using), orange juice, pineapple juice, and cranberry juice.
  3. Add the CBD-infused coconut rum to the mixer.
  4. Shake the ingredients until well-chilled and strain into a highball glass filled with fresh ice.
