It doesn’t take a master mixologist to figure out what’s in a scotch & soda. Just like a gin & tonic, the only ingredients you need to make this drink are in its name. Even if you have no experience making cocktails at home, we don’t think you’ll have too much trouble putting together this long-hailed highball.
For a little extra zing, we’ve added a pinch of our citrus-flavored CBD oil to this scotch & soda recipe. Even a half-dropperful of our CBD oil will add tasty tartness to this traditional drink.
CBD Scotch & Soda Recipe
Although the scotch & soda is typically served in a highball glass, you could also pour it into a rocks glass for a stiffer drink. Just keep in mind the average ratio of scotch to soda is usually between 1:2 or 1:3.
Whatever glass you use, it’s a good idea to plop one or two large ice cubes in your drink. The bigger your ice cubes are, the more time it will take for them to dilute. This means you could enjoy the complex flavors of your scotch without worrying about it getting watered down.
By the way, if you want to enjoy a scotch & soda like Sir Winston Churchill, you’ve got to go with Johnnie Walker. During the height of World War II, Churchill was known to down several scotch & sodas with either Johnnie Walker Red or Black.
- 1 ½ oz scotch
- Club soda
- ½ dropperful of Tribe CBD oil (citrus)
- Lemon slice for garnish (optional)
- Fill a rocks or highball glass with ice
- Add scotch and Tribe CBD oil
- Pour your desired amount of club soda
- Stir until well chilled
- Garnish with lemon slice (optional)
Do you want to add some spice to your scotch & soda? There are plenty of alternative recipes online, but perhaps the most famous rendition is the “Presbyterian.” To make a Presbyterian, all you have to do is cut your club soda in half and add some ginger ale. If that’s still not spicy enough for you, then go ahead and add your favorite ginger beer!
