Cranberry Sparkling CBD Cocktail: Celebrate With Our Fizzy CBD Drink!

Start your night off with a toast with a twist of CBD. This sparkling cocktail combines the natural terpenes of high-quality CBD oil with tart cranberry and sweet citrus.

Editor’s Note: Our sparkling CBD cocktail recipe marks our third collaboration with John Korkidis, better known as Chron Vivant. It’s also a chance for us to wish all of our readers a very Happy New Year! 

Looking for other “elevated” drinks to share on a special occasion? Try Chron Vivant CBD spiced cider or these other CBD cocktail recipes. -KO

On New Year’s I typically start my night with a glass of something sparkling. But instead of simply reaching for champagne, I like to challenge myself to be a bit more creative seeing as we are celebrating another trip around the sun.

This riff on a lower ABV (alcohol by volume) sparkling cocktail is elevated by the addition of a full-spectrum CBD tincture to help get the party started. The flavonoids and terpenoids found in most high quality CBD tinctures play well with the tart cranberry and sweet citrus notes and are easily washed down by the sparkling wine.

Elegant and perfect for any celebration, this dead simple champagne cocktail only contains a few simple ingredients and takes less than a minute to build.

And if you’re looking to save some money after all of your holiday shopping, you can easily substitute an Italian prosecco or Spanish cava in place of the traditional French bubbly in this recipe (you don’t need to use the good stuff when making sparkling cocktails).

Celebrate responsibly and be sure to tag your NYE cocktails: #ChronVivant #Hempgrams

Recipe: Homemade CBD Hot Cocoa To Soothe Away Holiday Stress

Nothing is more comforting than a cup of hot cocoa and nothing quite hugs the soul like CBD oil. So, there may be no better way to spend a cold winter’s day than snuggled up to a crackling fire with with a mug full of CBD hot cocoa.

Editor’s Note: This CBD hot cocoa recipe is our second collaboration with John Korkidis, better known as Chron Vivant. Don’t miss his CBD spiced cider recipe and our other CBD cocktails and non-alcoholic CBD drinks. -KO

Nothing is more comforting than a cup of hot cocoa and nothing quite hugs the soul like a broad spectrum of cannabinoids. So, there may be no better way to spend a cold winter’s day than snuggled up to a crackling fire with with a mug full of CBD hot cocoa. And if you don’t have a fireplace, this recipe will make you feel like you do.

Hemp-derived cannabinoids and terpenes enhance the spices and bitter chocolate notes. Plus, the added fat of the milk and whipped cream helps increase the bioavailability of the drink.

Fun Fact: The first chocolate beverage is believed to have been created by the Mayan peoples around 2000 years ago, and much like cannabis, the cocoa beverage was an essential part of Aztec culture. I wonder if they ever mixed the two?

RECIPE: CBD HOT COCOA

Serves: 1
Prep time: 5 min

Ingredients

  • 1 oz dark chocolate
  • 1 tablespoon unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 cup whole organic milk
  • 2 tablespoons organic granulated sugar (optional)
  • 1 pinch of cinnamon
  • 1 pinch sea salt
  • 2-3 drops of full spectrum CBD tincture

Garnish: Whipped cream or marshmallows and a candy cane

Preparation

  • In a small saucepan, mix the chocolate, cocoa powder and 1/2 cup of milk over low heat.
  • Stir continuously until the chocolate is completely melted. Add the remaining milk, a dash of cinnamon, and a dash of sea salt.
  • Stir in organic sugar to taste and add a few drops of the CBD tincture of your choice.
  • Pour CBD hot cocoa into your favorite mug and top with whipped cream or marshmallows.
  • Take a candy cane and place in a ziplock bag. Gently crush the candy cane with a mallet or similar object and sprinkle the remaining candy cane bits on top of your whipped cream or marshmallows.

CBD Mulled Apple Cider: Warm Up & Slow Down During Busy Holidays

We’re excited to introduce Ministry of Hemp readers to Chron Vivant and share his delicious CBD mulled apple cider recipe. We thought we’d start with a brief Q&A about his work and the art of hemp-infused cocktails.

We’re excited to introduce Ministry of Hemp readers to Chron Vivant and share his delicious CBD mulled apple cider recipe. We thought we’d start with a brief Q&A about his work and the art of hemp-infused cocktails. -Kit

A Q&A WITH CHRON VIVANT

Kit O’Connell, Editor in Chief at Ministry of Hemp: How did you get into making elevated cocktails? Was there a steep learning curve?

John Korkidis, a.k.a. @ChronVivant: Little known fact: I spent most of my 20’s living and working in China as a creative. During my time there I cut my teeth in various agency roles and had the honor of working closely with artists like Ai Weiwei in his Beijing studio.

I actually gained my appreciation for mixology during my time in China. I had a few friends who opened up some of the first cocktail bars in Beijing. They are the ones I credit for acquainting me with properly constructed classics and riffs. Also, because of proximity, Beijing had some fantastic Japanese whiskey bars where I gained a true appreciation for quality spirits, attentive service, custom hand-carved ice, and technique-driven mixology programs.

Cinnamon sticks and a clove orange help enhance the warm apple and hemp flavors of our CBD mulled apple cider.

When I first got to San Francisco, I found this type of experience and quality execution surprisingly lacking. (These days, though, the drink scene has definitely caught up). In addition, I wasn’t used to paying $16 for a classic cocktail that was not properly executed, so I started to experiment with building the base of my favorite drinks at home.

I focus on education and do my best to make things approachable for home chefs, apartment bartenders, and expert mixologists alike. Like anything in life, practice makes perfect. But getting started is not as hard as one might think.

MoH: What are some of your recipes you make most?

CV: Typically the drinks I feature are more mood enhancing than medicinal. However, I provide basic education and best practices for making all sorts of infusions. So depending on one’s particular needs, responsible adults (in legal states) have the ability to manufacture quality products affordably in their own home and use them how they see fit.

The recipes I make the most leverage CBD and act to enhance relaxation. I love classic cocktails like old-fashioneds but I’m also a sucker for an egg white sour, so these are the drinks I make most at home.

I personally have found that micro-dosing cannabinoids works for me. But in regards to traditional cocktails and mocktails, it’s common to have more than one. So it’s important that when creating recipes, dosing takes that into account. Also, I look at cannabis as just another ingredient and never try to make it the focal point. As you know, it’s important to get the balance right; it takes complex flavors and ingredients coming together to make a great drink. And it’s no different when making a canna-beverage.

MOH: What do you think people need to know about CBD drinks & cocktails? Any common misconceptions?

CV: Definitely lot’s of common misconceptions. When people hear cannabis cocktail often they assume that these drinks are going to get you high. To avoid any negative synergistic effects, I never recommend combining psychoactive cannabis with alcohol.

Chron Vivant is all about promoting responsible consumption and typically creates recipes that feature either CBD cocktails (low ABV) or non-alcoholic THC drink alternatives (no ABV).

Another thing for people to keep in mind is that everyone responds differently to ingesting cannabis. Even experienced users should exercise caution when consuming medicated infusions and follow the golden rule of ”going slow and keeping the dosage low.”

ENHANCE THE AUTUMN VIBES WITH CBD MULLED APPLE CIDER

We are already a month into fall and that means the holiday season is fast approaching.

It seems that once Halloween arrives, time speeds up and New Year’s Eve is here before we know it – a phenomenon known by some as Hallowthanksmas.

I find a good way to slow things down is to break up my daily routine and take a moment to catch my breath and reflect with a fall-themed CBD cocktail or non-alcoholic CBD beverage.

Croptober is one of my favorite times of year for ingredients. It’s period of transition, when the colors are still changing, the weather is shifting, and savory fruits and warm spices flood local markets.

As soon as I start to see apples, persimmons, and pumpkins popping up, that’s when I get the signal that the change in seasons truly is here and I know it’s time to make a batch of my signature mulled apple cider.

This easy-to-make, and even easier-to-drink, beverage is perfect for warming up the soul and makes an excellent batch concoction for your next seasonal party.

The addition of CBD is sure to comfort the body and relax the mind. And since CBD is a non-psychoactive cannabinoid, you won’t need to worry worry about experiencing any negative synergistic effects when combined with alcohol. But of course, this fall-themed CBD cocktail can easily become a non-alcoholic mocktail by simply negating the booze.

PlusCBD Oil Café Mocha Spray is the perfect way to start our day off right.

This spray has a strong coffee taste with delicious chocolate undertones that pairs wonderfully with almost any cup of coffee. It also makes a great addition to smoothies, hemp milk and other food and drinks. If you are a lover of coffee flavor, you’ll probably enjoy spraying PlusCBD Oil Café Mocha Spray directly in your mouth, too.

For this review, we tested the this spray in the 500mg strength. According to PlusCBD Oil, each 2 ounce bottle contains about 160 servings of 2 sprays each. Each serving provides about 3mg of CBD, or 1.5mg per spray. This is a relatively low dose of CBD, but we found it made a great start to our day which we could supplement later with CBD in other forms … or by going back for a second cup of CBD coffee! Since CBD oil can promote relaxation, it may even reduce some of the negative side effects of coffee.

Sipping CBD: CBD Golden Milk & Other CBD Drinks

CBD golden milk is the perfect way to make a healthy drink even better. Get our recipe for this special golden milk, CBD basil lemonade and more.

CBD golden milk is the perfect way to make a healthy drink even better.

We’ve already looked at CBD cocktails, but you don’t need liquor to enjoy the relaxing benefits of mixing CBD into your favorite beverages.

The most recent beverage trend hitting major coastal cities doesn’t use alcohol as a main ingredient. Instead, the main ingredient is cannabidiol, the non-psychoactive ingredient in cannabis. The most important thing to be aware of when you’re ingesting a CBD drink is how your body reacts to edible CBD. Generally, ingesting CBD orally takes longer to take effect, meaning you’ll be on the safer side sticking to just one drink per hour.

The benefits of drinking a CBD-infused drink include relaxation, reduced anxiety, reduced inflammation, decreased joint pain, better sleep and nausea relief. CBD golden milk takes a drink that thousands of people love and adds the powerful effects of CBD. These kinds of beverages also provide you with a discreet method of ingesting the compound, and deliver a slower onset as opposed to vaping CBD. If you’re looking for a less invasive way to enjoy CBD, we recommend sticking to edibles and drinks.

Read on for our CBD golden milk recipe and some of our other favorite CBD drinks.

CBD golden milk is the perfect way to make this popular drink even better. Photo shows golden milk in a mug along with ingredients including turmeric, cinnamon and honey.

CBD Cocktails: Recipes To Relax And Entertain Your Guests

Looking for amazing CBD cocktail recipes for your next party? Not only are they an elegant way to relax your guests, they could reduce the effects of hangovers.

Looking for amazing CBD cocktail recipes for your next party?

We all love the idea of serving fancy cocktails to our friends, but why not take your fun to the next level?

And the best part is that instead of having a wretched hangover the day after, some people report that adding CBD to their cocktails reduces that terrible feeling.

CBD cocktails are a simple way to add elegance and chill to your party.

CBD cocktails are a simple way to add elegance and chill vibes to your party.

If you think that’s too good to be true, this guide might just take that edge off for you. We’ll begin by giving you a basic idea about what makes CBD cocktails special and then move on to some simple CBD infused cocktail recipes.

WHAT ARE THE EFFECTS OF CBD COCKTAILS?

The effect of the intake of CBD infused cocktails varies for different people. But generally, it is one of euphoria without the irking sense of anxiety caused by regular cannabis. CBD (Cannabidiol) is usually known to have a calming effect, relaxing the senses from other physical discomforts.

With CBD, you get to enjoy Disneyland’s “It’s a Small World” ride without freaking out and jumping off the carriage.

According to bartenders across the trendiest cities in the country, New York, Los Angeles, Portland – you name it; CBD in cocktails enhances the drinks’ flavor. This supplement is also known to reduce inflammation and anxiety, and that effect extends to cocktails infused with CBD.

Some people who have experimented with CBD cocktails also claim it reduces the negative effects of intoxication, though there isn’t any scientific research to support this yet. There is some evidence that cannabinoids can reduce nausea.

Don’t get us wrong: you’ll still get sick if you overindulge, but CBD could help you enjoy your drinks a little more.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT CBD COCKTAILS

Q. How is CBD oil used in food and beverages?

A. CBD is used in food products and beverages, usually in the form of CBD oils and tinctures. CBD tinctures are alcohol based. Adding CBD isolates or syrup infusions to your drinks are also a great way to customize your experience.

Q. What’s the difference between CBD oil and CBD tinctures?

A.  CBD oils and tinctures affect the taste of cocktails differently.Unfortunately, these two terms are frequently used interchangeably today, but the difference is the ingredients: CBD oil is oil-based, while tinctures infuse CBD oil into an alcohol base.

Oils are either infused or drizzled on the drinks. CBD oils provide that intense hemp smell and concentrated flavor. But there is a chance that oil bases may get trapped in the layers or drop to the bottom, eventually getting left behind in the glass.

Tinctures, on the other hand, blend in more smoothly with other alcohols to give you that complete experience.

Q. How does the alcohol content of the cocktail effect CBD?

A. The ABV index, or ‘alcohol by volume’, measures the amount of alcohol in a given volume of alcoholic beverage. The more the alcohol content in your cocktail, the lesser your chances are of noticing the effects of CBD. But, if you go overboard with the CBD content, you might end up getting too sleepy for the better part of the time.

Q. What’s the ideal CBD dosage to use for cocktails?

A. The CBD dosage varies from one person to another, which can also depend on your preference. A high dosage of CBD oil, when mixed with alcohol, tends to make you sleepy and intoxicated. However, you won’t feel the effects of CBD if your drink has more alcohol in it. So, for a starter, it would be better to balance the mixture with a lower dose of CBD oil, and you can increase the dosage over time.
