CBD cocktail recipes open a new realm of aphrodisiacs
With this cocktail recipe, we’re daring to go somewhere we’ve never gone before…into a realm that promotes the aphrodisiac potential of cannabis. This CBD cocktail recipe harnesses the sensual powers of the cannabis sativa plant. However, it does so without the psychoactive component of the plant, (known as THC). Meaning the goal of this drink is not to get your romantic interest high. Instead, it offers CBD’s healing effects, like stress and anxiety reduction, along with a refreshing mix of Aperol, lemon juice and the aphrodisiac of gin.
What are the benefits of CBD drinks?
I was hesitant at first to publish a CBD-infused drink recipe. It wasn’t a cocktail category I knew much about when cannabis product manufacturer Curaleaf reached out to me about using their products in drinks. Specifically, it uses Lemon Bergamot CBD Tincture Drops. Because this is among Curaleaf’s hemp products – not the cannabis products – I believe it can be shipped nationwide.
And yes, one vial of this tincture, also called their Revive Tincture, is a pricy investment. But you’ll quickly discover that it’s good for more than cocktails. And that a few precious drops will go a long way. The tincture is made from a balanced combination of CBD oil and the rinds of lemons and Bergamot oranges. Don’t forget that citrus is among our 10 Best Foods for Women. And since it’s not psychoactive, the Revive Tincture can be used at any time of the day, as drops or in tea.
Additional ingredients that add to this cbd cocktail experience
But let’s return to the CBD cocktail recipe. I wanted to feature this cannabis drink recipe as our first foray into the world of hemp because it is layered with aphrodisiac potential, not to mention sophistication.
It combines famously aphrodisiac gin with one of our team’s favorite spirits, Aperol. Added to the drink is the zing of citrus and the addition of egg white – also aphrodisiac – which gives a cocktail brilliant texture. Lastly, this blush-pink combination of fresh and inviting flavors and textures is topped with a rose petal, which is both a romantic gesture and a surprisingly aphrodisiac, edible treat.
This is without question a drink of love. How could you possibly you pass this up?
