15 CBD Drinks That You Can Make With Joy Organics CBD Oil
Share:

Nothing beats unwinding after a stressful day with a tasty beverage and some CBD oil. CBD cocktails allow you to have the best of both worlds. Mixing CBD and alcohol helps you ride the relaxation train while maintaining your focus on the conversations or activities in which you’re participating. 

Not sure how to make a CBD drink? We’ve got you covered. We’re going to discuss CBD drink benefits and how different ingredients can impact CBD drink effects. Plus, we’ll provide you with 20 of the most delicious CBD-infused drink recipes!

What is a CBD Drink? 

CBD edibles are some of the most popular CBD oil products in the world. Many people imagine scarfing a brownie or popping a gummy when they think of consuming CBD. 

However, drinking CBD can be just as tasty. It might even get the job done quicker (which we’ll get to in a bit!). 

A CBD drink is made by infusing hemp extract with your beverage. Hemp extracts come in many flavors that can complement a wide variety of beverage combinations. 

Just add a few drops of CBD tinctures to your mixers and you become a bartender extraordinaire. We’re going to teach you how to make a CBD drink in just a bit!

What Happens if You Drink CBD Oil?

Many people mix CBD oil with a beverage to make the CBD oil taste better. However, you can take sublingual drops of CBD with CBD tinctures. 

CBD oil has a naturally nutty and earthy flavor. You can also get CBD oil tinctures flavored with essential oils, such as Summer Lemon, Orange Bliss, and Tranquil Mint. 

We wouldn’t recommend downing CBD tinctures like an energy shot. However, a few dropperfuls throughout the day can support a healthy lifestyle. Plus, some flavors taste absolutely amazing! 

CBD Drink Benefits 

There are many reasons for mixing CBD and alcohol. For one, CBD tinctures can add nuanced flavor notes to your beverage. Dancing taste buds aside, here are some benefits of CBD cocktails.

Assist Healthy Sleep Patterns 

While alcohol can help us nod off in no time, it can also wake us up in the middle of the night. Experts believe alcohol increases adenosine production, causing us to snooze. However, it burns quickly, wears off, and wakes us up. A CBD drink might help maintain your sleep patterns, so you sleep off the alcohol.

Promote Relaxation and Focus

We unwind with cocktails to forget the burdens of our day. When we’re exhausted, alcohol adds to the fogginess. Drinks with CBD can help promote focus so that we remain relaxed but present. 

Improve CBD Activation Time 

What makes CBD drinks the most effective CBD edibles is that they boost your cannabinoid activation time. When you eat a CBD cookie, your body needs to digest the food particles to get the CBD. 

When CBD is mixed with liquid, it immediately starts absorbing in your mouth. The CBD doesn’t need to come into contact with your stomach acids. Avoiding stomach acids increases the bioavailability of the cannabinoids. 

Ingredients in CBD Cocktails 

Everything in this world is made of chemical compounds, making chemical reactions. So, some ingredients you add to your hemp oil drink recipes will impact the CBD drink effects. Let’s discuss how these items may affect CBD.

Alcohol 

There are many studies on how mixing CBD and alcohol affect one another. Some research suggests that the two amplify the effects of one another. That’s why one of the CBD drink benefits includes improved sleep. 

Experts also suggest CBD might improve blood alcohol concentration. However, that doesn’t mean you should drink and drive after mixing CBD oil and alcohol. Also, excessive long-term alcohol consumption can cause a wide range of health-related issues. 

Sugar 

Many of us enjoy the sweetness of a nice daiquiri, but CBD and sugar don’t always mix. Diets high in refined sugar cause several health complications. Namely, sugar can promote inflammation.

Consuming CBD with ingredients that cause an immune response will negate the potential CBD drink benefits. Your CBD will be busy dealing with the discomfort your sugary CBD drink is causing. 

Go light on the granulated sugar and try to use natural alternatives like stevia or raw honey when possible. 

Toxins and Additives 

Sometimes the worst ingredient in a cannabis drink recipe is the CBD oil. A lot of companies cut corners because the CBD industry is unregulated. 

You want to make sure you’re using the purest oil possible when learning how to make a CBD drink. Be sure to vet all brands before making a purchase.

First things first, see if they have lab reports. That way, you know someone has verified that this oil is actually safe for human consumption. 

What Food or Drink Kicks Up the Power of CBD Oil?

With those asterisks out of the way, you can add different foods and ingredients to your CBD drinks that will improve the bioavailability. Some of these will be sprinkled throughout our various CBD drink recipes. Try mixing and matching some of these to boost your CBD drink benefits!

Healthy Fats 

Fats are essential for nutrient absorption. That’s why we infuse our broad spectrum hemp extract into extra virgin olive oil and MCT oil to make Joy Organics’ CBD Tinctures

Healthy fat sources to include in your cannabis drink recipe include:

  • Avocado
  • Coconut
  • Egg Yolk
  • Fruit Oils

Dietary fats shield phytocannabinoids from your stomach acids. These macronutrients take the brunt of the damage, releasing CBD and friends in the bloodstream.

Food-Grade Essential Oils 

Essential oils are rich in aromatic molecules known as terpenes. Terpenes interact with our system in many ways, as phytocannabinoids do. 

These molecules influence receptors to achieve balance throughout the system. Cannabinoids and essential oils work together to create the entourage effect.

Some of the best essential oils for CBD drinks include:

  • Lemon
  • Ginger
  • Lime
  • Licorice
  • Mango

Essential oils are highly concentrated and are toxic in high amounts, which is why it’s important you use food-grade essential oil brands. Follow strict adherence to the directions on the package.

Fruits 

Fruits are rich in antioxidants. Therefore, they help fight off free radicals that might trigger immune responses. 

By adding nature’s candy to your hemp oil drink recipes, you can free up CBD to tend to other matters. Plus, fruit can be a great alternative for sugar.

Top 15 Best CBD Drinks Recipes 

Mixing CBD and alcohol is a recipe for a good time. We have all the recipes you need to make your next party or nightcap go off without a hitch. 

CBD-infused drink recipes don’t have to just be alcoholic. We’ll include some family-friendly versions that everyone can enjoy, too!

1. Ho! Ho! Ho! CBD Cocoa!

There’s something special about hot cocoa that helps soften the harsh chill that comes with winter winds. Now, take the heat up even more with Ho! Ho! Ho! CBD Cocoa! This CBD-infused drink captures the inner child in all of us. It can also be child-friendly without the whiskey.

This recipe takes traditional hot cocoa and turns it up a notch. We add in some spices and orange CBD tincture to the mix. Together, they blend with the hot cocoa to create a CBD drink that makes us feel like we’re keeping warm by a cozy fire.

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup milk (or almond milk)
  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • ¼ teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1 star anise (optional)
  • 1 ounce chocolate chips (we suggest dark chocolate, but milk chocolate will work)
  • 1 tablespoon of unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 dropper of Joy Organics’ Orange Bliss CBD Tincture
  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • Mini marshmallows
  • 1 shot of cinnamon whiskey

Directions:

  1. Pour the milk into a medium saucepan over medium heat.
  2. Stir in the cinnamon stick, nutmeg, and star anise.
  3. Bring the mixture to a boil and then lower it to a simmer for ten minutes.
  4. Strain the milk into a measuring cup and then pour it back into the saucepan.
  5. Add in the chocolate chips and unsweetened cocoa powder.
  6. Whisk continuously until the ingredients are well integrated.
  7. Bring this mixture to a slow boil, then take it off the heat.
  8. Pour into a mug.
  9. Add a full dropper of Joy Organics CBD Tincture to the mug.
  10. Pour in the whiskey.
  11. Stir with a cinnamon stick and top off with mini marshmallows.

2. CBD Sufganiyahtini

This CBD-infused recipe is inspired by sufganiyah. This popular Jewish dessert is much like a jelly doughnut, but we transformed this treat into a delicious martini.

A little lemon CBD tincture goes a long way in bringing this berry-flavored beverage to life. It offers that light, tart bite you’d expect from freshly baked pastry dough. 

We suggest using half of a dropper of CBD tincture to allow the berry notes to shine through. If you’re a lemon fanatic, feel free to double up.

Ingredients:

Directions:

  1. Chill a martini glass ten minutes before serving.
  2. Swipe the lemon wedge around the rim of the glass. Give it a light squeeze as you work around the perimeter.
  3. Pour a little confectioner’s sugar onto a clean surface, like a small plate.
  4. Place the lemon-dressed glass upside down onto the sugar and turn it clockwise until the rim is covered in sugar.
  5. Put some ice into a shaker and follow up with the vodka and wine.
  6. Gently stir for 30 seconds. Harsh, repetitive shaking will water down your CBD drink.
  7. Strain the contents of the shaker over the martini glass.
  8. Top off with Joy Organics Lemon CBD Tincture. Give a light swirl and enjoy.

3. CBD Ginger Beer

While Kwanzaa is predominantly celebrated in the United States, it was founded with a nod to African roots. Founded by Dr. Maulana Karenga in 1966, this celebration honors African heritage in African-American culture.

To get in the spirit this holiday season, we included a recipe for a West African favorite, ginger beer. Our CBD Ginger Beer pairs well with lemon and orange CBD tinctures. These fruity notes really accent the peppery bite that we love in ginger.

These drinks with CBD can be non-alcoholic. Just leave out the bourbon. 

Ingredients:

  • 6 cups water
  • ½ pound ginger, peeled and sliced thin
  • ½ cup lemon juice, freshly squeezed
  • 1 cup honey (or agave nectar for vegan option)
  • ½ dropper Joy Organics Lemon CBD Tincture
  • ½ dropper Joy Organics Orange CBD Tincture
  • 2 cups seltzer
  • Ice
  • Shot of bourbon 

Directions:

  1. Pour 2 cups of water into a medium saucepan over medium heat.
  2. Add in the ginger.
  3. Bring to a boil and then lower the temperature to a simmer.
  4. Allow the mixture to simmer for 20 minutes.
  5. Take off the heat and stir in lemon juice, honey, and Joy Organics Lemon and Orange CBD Tinctures.
  6. After the mixture cools, pour it into a pitcher.
  7. Add in the rest of the water, seltzer, and bourbon.
  8. Pour in the ice and stir.

4. CBD Cran-Mint Fizz

The CBD Cran-Mint Fizz’s cranberry hue and minty bite will transport you all the way to the Christmas tree farm. This tart CBD drink will deck your halls and get you feeling jolly in no time.

For this CBD-infused drink, you can substitute the cranberry vodka for Joy Organics Happy Berry CBD Energy Drinks. If you opt for the alcoholic version, you will still get your CBD kick thanks to our mint CBD tincture.

Ingredients:

  • ⅓ cup cranberries
  • Fresh mint leaves
  • 1 teaspoon liquid cane sugar
  • ½ teaspoon lime juice, freshly squeezed
  • 2 ounces cranberry vodka (or use 2 ounces of a fully mixed blend of water and the Joy Organics Happy Berry CBD Energy Drink Mix; save the rest for later)
  • 4 ounces cranberry juice
  • 6 ounces ginger ale (or use CBD Ginger Beer recipe above)
  • 1 ½ ounces white rum
  • 1 full dropper of Joy Organics’ Tranquil Mint CBD Tincture
  • Lime wedge
  • Table sugar
  • Cranberries for garnish

Directions:

  • Put the cranberries and mint into a shaker and muddle them well.
  • Add in lemon juice and sugar, muddling more so that everything is well integrated.
  • Pour in vodka (or Energy Drink Mix) and cranberry juice.
  • Shake vigorously.
  • Stir in the ginger ale, white rum, and Joy Organics Mint CBD Tincture.
  • Use the lime wedge to line the rim of a cocktail glass with juice.
  • Pour some table sugar onto a clean surface and dress the rim of your glass.
  • Pour in your CBD beverage and garnish with extra cranberries.

5. Out of the Haze-lnut Coffee

This recipe is much like bulletproof coffee, minus the blender. We added a little fat in the form of grass-fed butter to help with the absorption of cannabinoids.

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups fair-trade coffee, brewed
  • 2 tablespoons grass-fed butter
