It's 24th July and believe it or not, that means National Tequila Day!

Since we are in the summer season, what better way to refresh yourself than with this delicious CBD-infused Margarita recipe?

INGREDIENTS (Serves 1)

0.75ml Love Hemp CBD Liquid Oil Drops, 1200mg Wild Cherry Flavour, 30mg per drink

10 Fresh Cherries, pitted

45ml/ 1.5oz Tequila

15ml /0.5oz Triple Sec or Maraschino Liquor (recommended)

1 lime, juiced

1.5-2tsp Sugar syrup or Honey, to sweeten

(Opt.)1tsp Egg white*

Ice

Salt for rim

Lime Wheel, for garnish

2 Cherries, for garnish

 

*TOP TIP: CBD Binds best when a fat source is added. If you are making this recipe in big batch or in advance I recommend adding a little egg white (a fat source) so the mixture doesn't separate. The vigorous shake in step 4 will roughly distribute the CBD but has time to separate over time. I generally serve my cocktails immediately and therefore don't always add the egg white.

 

Always drink responsibly!

 

METHOD

  1. Rub the rim of a cocktail glass with a lime wedge and dip the rim in coarse salt.
  2. Puree the cherries either using a pestle and mortar or a small blender.
  3. (Opt.) For those who don't like bits, strain the Puree, using a spoon to press the liquid through.
  4. Add the ice cubes to the cocktail shaker along with the CBD, Tequila, Liqueur , lime juice, honey, egg white* and Cherry Puree. Shake vigorously.
  5. Using a strainer, strain the cocktail into salt dipped glasses on ice. Decorate with a cherry and lime wheel.
