3 Essential CBD Summer Cocktails

3 Summer CBD Cocktails

As we approach both the dog days and the last days of summer (why are they always the hottest?) we’ve come to realize that there’s nothing like a refreshing drink to keep us cool and balanced. In the spirit (see what we did there?) of chilling both our mind and body, we asked local bartender Laura Lynch to come up with three easy-as-they-are-delicious summer CBD cocktails (and one mocktail) for you to try at home.

Caipirinha Melancia CBD Summer Cocktail

 

Caipirinha Melancia

Ingredients:

  • 1 whole lime cut into 6 wedges
  • 1 half dropper Equilibria Daily Drops (0.5ml)
  •  3/4 oz simple syrup
  • 1 1/2oz cachaca
  • 1 1/2 oz watermelon juice

Directions:

Put lime wedges into shaker tin with simple syrup and Equilibria Daily Drops. Muddle gently, pressing the limes until they are fully juiced. Add cachaca, watermelon juice and ice. Shake vigorously and pour, limes and all, into a double old-fashioned glass. Add a lime wheel and mint to garnish. For a delicious “mocktail” just take out the cachaca! Yum!

While these are delicious enough to drink an entire pitcher full of these summer cocktails, don’t forget to drink responsibly. Cheers!
