CBD Sea Breeze Cocktail Recipe
There’s no need to splurge on a high-end vodka for a Sea Breeze. While this liquor certainly adds a “kick” in terms of effects, its flavors won’t shine through.
That being said, many Sea Breeze variations call for flavored vodkas. If you’d like to add nuance to this CBD cocktail, we suggest looking into a lemon or lime vodka that can stand up to the other juices. However, if you’re thirsty for an experimental Sea Breeze, then we recommend trying a crisp green apple vodka infusion.
- 2 oz vodka
- 3 oz cranberry juice
- 2 oz grapefruit juice
- ½ dropperful Tribe CBD oil (citrus)
- Grapefruit slice
- Add ice to a highball glass
- Pour vodka, cranberry juice, grapefruit juice, and Tribe CBD oil
- Garnish with a grapefruit slice
Although it’s not necessary, many bartenders like to add the grapefruit juice after you pour the vodka and cranberry juice. This simple trick creates a brilliant contrast between the ruby red bottom and the light pink top. Be sure to keep this tip in mind if you want to impress your friends!
On the other hand, some people prefer to shake their Sea Breeze before serving. Not only will shaking ensure all liquids are well incorporated, it will also add dilution and aeration to your CBD cocktail. Just be sure to strain your Sea Breeze into an ice-filled highball glass to keep unpleasant ice shards out of your drink.
