Holiday Mocktails . . . Getting Festive Without the Hangover!
Updated: Dec 19, 2019
It’s officially time to get our "jollies" on as we embrace the madness of the holidays and daily, festive celebrations to attend. Between end-of-year work parties, client events, and get-togethers with friends before they leave town, our calendars are bulging. And with all the deliciously, tempting food and libations of the season, Christmas is also a traditional time for bulging waistlines! But even though it’s the holidays, not all of us want to over-indulge and especially not with alcohol.
For those who are keeping it “dry,” whether sobriety, a strict health plan, or because we don’t want to throw out all our hard work in the gym for the sake of a “good time,” getting boozed-up isn’t an option. So how do we get our groove on and get festive without the hangover? Find a little balance and celebrate without the hard stuff? Hello CBD-infused Mocktails!
In our quest to create the perfect holiday, CBD libations, we partnered with LA mixologist, Michael Misetich (aka The Last Bartender), at Bar Lubitsch in Hollywood, to enjoy some great drinks and good-feeling vibes!
CBD Hot Apple Cider
(Makes 8-10 cups)
1 bottle of unsweetened apple cider
½ cup maple syrup
¼ cup apple cider vinegar
10 cinnamon sticks
10 orange slices
Gently heat the apple cider over a low flame.
Add cloves and stir in the maple syrup.
Simmer for 15-20 minutes.
Pour into serving cups and add one dropper of CBD Tincture to each cup.
Garnish with an orange slice, a sprinkle of all spice, a CBD Cure Vegan + Vitamin C Gummy, and a cinnamon stick.
EggNog (store bought or home made)
Pour eggnog into a glass and add a dropper of CBD Cure Tincture.
Sprinkle with nutmeg and add a cinnamon stick.
CBD Mock Chocolatini
½ cup home made hot chocolate (chilled), or your favorite chocolate milk
Mini gingerbread men
¼ cup honey
Pour chocolate milk mix into an ice shaker.
Add CBD Tincture, ice, and shake well.
Pour honey onto a small plate.
Take 6 mini gingerbread men cookies and crush.
Take a martini glass and rim by dipping in the honey first, and then the cookie crumbs.
Pour the chocolate mix into the glass, and place one gingerbread man and one CBD Cure Gummy as a garnish.
Yummy . . . A happy holiday without the hangover! Now that’s what we call a good time!
