3 CBD Cocktails You Can Make Today


CBD has become immensely popular for a huge number of reasons: its potential health benefits, the vast range of products available... but perhaps the most important factor behind this popularity is the sheer versatility of the ingredient. Sure, you can incorporate CBD in the form of a CBD oil  or a gummy, but why not try something a little more fun? Like a cocktail!


That’s right – CBD drinks offer the opportunity to get a little creative and start enjoying CBD with (or without) your favourite tipple. What could be better?


We have put together three delicious CBD cocktail recipes that we know you will love this World Cocktail Day and beyond! Check them out below.

1. ELDERFLOWER & YUZU COLLINS


Let’s be honest: who doesn’t love a gin cocktail on a Spring day (or any type of day, for that matter)? We certainly do. And we think that the hint of sweetness from Elderflower and citrus burst from Yuzu in our Elderflower and Yuzu CBD drink makes for the perfect addition to your favourite gin.


This fruity CBD twist on a classic Gin cocktail is sure to get anyone excited.

Ingredients (serves 1):

  • 25ml of your favourite gin
  • 250ml (1 can) Goodrays Elderflower and Yuzu
  • Lemon slice
  • Sprig of Elderflower (optional)

Put plenty of ice into a tall collins glass (or any other tall glass) and add the gin, Elderflower and Yuzu CBD drink and stir gently. Garnish with a lemon slice and – if you’re feeling fancy – a sprig of fresh elderflower. Voila!


2. GRAPEFRUIT (NO-) GIN SOUR


If you’re in the mood for a cocktail but want to skip the alcohol, this mocktail version of a classic is a great way to go. Complete with the signature sour finish brought by freshly squeezed lemon juice, our Blood Orange and Grapefruit CBD drink makes this delicious drink refreshing and relaxing in equal measure – you won’t even miss the alcohol.

Ingredients (serves 2):

  • ½ a Lemon, juiced
  • 1 Egg white
  • 2 tbsp of simple sugar syrup
  • 250ml (1 can) Goodrays Blood Orange and Grapefruit
  • 2 Strips of grapefruit zest, to serve

Place a handful of ice into two short cocktail glasses. Pour the lemon juice, egg white, and sugar syrup into a cocktail shaker and shake well to combine. Add a few ice cubes to the shaker and shake again for 30 seconds to cool the liquid. Strain the combined cocktail over the ice in your cocktail glasses and top up with Goodrays Blood Orange and Grapefruit CBD drink. Garnish with a strip of grapefruit zest and enjoy. Delicious!


3. RASPBERRY AND HONEY VODKA SPRITZ


Next up, a sweet and sophisticated vodka cocktail that is sure to get your tastebuds buzzing. The tartness of fresh crushed raspberries and sweet honey combines perfectly with vodka and our refreshing Raspberry and Guava CBD drink to create a cocktail that is sure to pack a punch and win your heart.

Ingredients (serves 2):

  • 12-14 Raspberries (plus 2 to serve)
  • 100 ml Vodka of your choice
  • 50 ml Lemon Juice
  • 50 ml Honey
  • 250 ml (1 can) Goodrays Raspberry and Guava

Crush the raspberries using a pestle and mortar until they are completely broken down (reserving 2 to serve). Pass the crushed raspberries through a sieve to remove the seeds. Add a handful of ice to a cocktail shaker and add the raspberry juice, vodka, lemon juice and honey and shake well to combine.Fill 2 tall cocktail glasses with a handful of ice and pour over the mixture from your cocktail shaker. Top up with Goodrays Raspberry and Guava CBD drink and top with a fresh raspberry.
