DIY CBD Oil Beverages

Making your own CBD oil beverages is really easy. What you might not know about your CBD tincture is that it is really quite versatile. Of course, you can always take it just as it is but it can also be used in cooking applications, baking and in beverages both hot and cold.

Tips for Mixing CBD Oil into Liquids

When making CBD oil beverages you’ll use your normal dose of CBD oil. One tip that is very important for you to remember is that CBD oil mixes best with another fat. You can easily use coconut oil, milk, heavy cream and even butter to create a combination that mixes well. If you enjoy adult spirits, the butter and CBD oil mixture would work well in this application.

CBD oil makes a great floater on top of some types of drinks, so add it last. Even consider using liquid nitrogen to freeze drops of CBD oil to help chill a drink. Not only is this impressive for your guests, but it also shows off your creativity.

Try These CBD Oil Beverages

We’ve come up with a list of types of beverages that you can add CBD oil to. For adult spirits, consider using a melted butter and CBD oil combination with fruity drinks that include rum or bourbon. Both of these spirits work well with butter – especially brown butter.

Add a dose of CBD oil to:

  • Hot tea
  • Mixed alcoholic drinks (be careful when mixing CBD with alcohol, it could make you sleepier than you’re used to)
  • Hot coffee – Add the CBD oil to your dairy
  • Smoothies
  • Fruit juice
  • Milkshakes
  • Water (CBD crystalline works best)
  • Glass of milk

Get creative. If you like to float fresh fruit in a cup of iced tea, juice or even adult beverages, feel free to soak the fruit in CBD oil beforehand. It’s another way to get CBD oil into these beverages.

Try our Lemon, Orange or Peppermint CBD extracts in your beverages for an added layer of flavor.

Base CBD Oil Beverages with Variations

It wouldn’t be very kind of us to tell you to add CBD oil to your favorite beverages without at least providing one recipe. We’ve provided you with a base recipe that you can absolutely customize and get extra creative with.

The CBD Bloody Mary

Since DIY CBD oil beverages are sweeping the nation, you can make a different version of this base cocktail for any occasion. It’s a great brunch option.

1 cup tomato juice

5 ounces vodka (optional, this can absolutely be a virgin cocktail)

4 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce

2 droppers unflavored CBD oil

3 teaspoons horseradish (freshly grated from horseradish root is beset)

12 dashes hot sauce

½ teaspoon salt

½ teaspoon soy sauce

2 teaspoons toasted celery seeds

Juice from ½ lemon

It couldn’t be easier to make this drink. Toast your celery seeds and set them aside. These toast fast so you must pay attention to them. Grate your horseradish. Add everything to a tall pitcher and stir. This recipe is best served chilled.

Try these garnishes:

  • Bacon
  • Crab meat
  • Lobster tails or claws
  • Medium rare filet mignon or ribeye
  • Grilled shrimp
  • Citrus marinated chicken tenders
  • Andouille sausage

These garnishes are a ton of fun – get creative! Make a brand new Bloody Mary spiked with a little CBD that your friends will request at every gathering.

Closing Thoughts

As you can see, you can add CBD oil to pretty much any beverage you choose. When it comes to mixing CBD and alcohol, as we mentioned, CBD may make you feel a little sleepier than normal since CBD is known to be calming and alcoholic beverages have sedative (calming/relaxing) properties as well.
