CBD Mocktail Magic: Delicious Recipes for Relaxation

 CBD mocktail

For those looking for a way to wind down after a long day, consider adding a calming alcohol-free nightcap to the mix.

But magically soothing mocktails require one special ingredient: CBD oil. This plant-based tincture reigns from stalks of hemp and delivers tranquility and an earthy flavor that’ll complement any herbal-inspired cocktail. 

For those seeking ways how to destress after a long day, these CBD mocktails offer a delightful and innovative solution to unwind and relax.

#1 Nettle Tea and CBD Mojito Mocktail

Stinging nettles are an electric addition to any mocktail merriment. The shrub, known for its heart-shaped leaves and sunset-colored flowers, boasts several benefits. It may help to:

  • Support urinary tract health
  • Relieve achiness
  • Manage blood sugar levels
  • Provide your body with plenty of antioxidants

To craft a nettle tea, crush the dried leaves into a textured mix. Pre-packaged nettle tea bags are also available at most grocery stores and health shops. 

When combined with CBD,  this mojito mocktail can nourish your body and replenish your mental health. 

So, what will you need?

Ingredients

  • 1 lime
  • ½ cup hot water
  • 2 tea bags of nettle leaves
  • ½ tsp raw honey
  • 1 cup crushed ice
  • ½ cup sparkling water
  • ½ cup fresh mint leaves
  • 20 mg CBD oil

Preparation

This CBD mocktail recipe is fit for two. Begin by brewing the tea bags in the hot water. Allow the bags to steep for approximately five minutes before removing them from the water. Then, pour the tea into your desired vessels — you can opt for a classic cocktail class or a mug if you prefer.

Once added, distribute the raw honey between the two glasses while the tea is still hot. Stir to ensure the honey completely melts. Then, squeeze ½ lime into each glass and add 10 mg of CBD oil to each mocktail, as well as the sparkling water and crushed ice. Finally, garnish with fresh mint leaves. 

#2 Rosemary, Citrus and CBD Mocktail

Rosemary is an herbal powerhouse — much like hemp. Studies suggest that the bush is antimicrobial, anti-inflammatory and antioxidant-rich. It may also help to regulate blood sugar levels, protect your vision, improve your mood and memory and support brain health.

CBD can also help to support your mental health, as researchers believe that the cannabinoid interacts directly with the central nervous system when consumed.

That’s a match made in mental health heaven.

To prepare your mental balance elixir, heed the following.

Ingredients

  • 2 sprigs of fresh rosemary
  • 30 ml lemon juice
  • 30 ml orange juice
  • 15 ml simple syrup or agave
  • ¼ cup sparkling water
  • ½ cup crushed ice
  • 1 lemon slice
  • 10 mg CBD oil

Preparation

First, grab your desired glass and add one sprig of rosemary. Muddle the rosemary. Then, add the crushed ice, followed by the lemon and orange juice, simple syrup or agave and CBD oil. Stir the mixture until evenly distributed. Finally, top off the glass with sparkling water, a lemon slice and the second rosemary sprig. 

Enjoy!

#3 CBD Strawberry Basil Bliss Mocktail

Whether you’re lounging under the warm sun or longing for it, this mocktail is the perfect summer-inspired refreshment. Infused with basil and CBD, you’re sure to benefit from every sip.

Basil, itself, can help to elevate your mood, increase mental alertness and support healthy blood pressure levels. In addition to their sweet taste, strawberries also provide plenty of vitamins and minerals that help to manage cardiovascular health. 

Ingredients

  • 6 fresh basil leaves
  • ¼ cup fresh, chopped strawberries
  • 30 ml fresh lime juice
  • 15 ml simple syrup or agave
  • ¼  cup sparkling water
  • ½ cup crushed ice
  • 1 basil sprig
  • 1 whole strawberry
  • 10 mg CBD oil

Preparation

In a mason jar, muddle the fresh basil leaves and the chopped strawberries until you’ve reached a soft consistency. Fill the glass with crushed ice before adding the lime juice, syrup and CBD oil. Finish the mocktail with a splash of sparkling water, one basil sprig and a whole strawberry, cut to slide onto the rim of the glass. 

#4 Chamomile CBD Paloma Mocktail

Nothing quite whispers relaxation like chamomile. The delicate flower is rich in antioxidants, which may help to increase feelings of sleepiness and improve the quality of your sleep, especially when paired with CBD. It’s also believed that chamomile can support:

  • Heart health
  • Healthy blood sugar levels
  • Digestion
  • Healthy moods
  • Skin health
  • Immune function

To sink into a restful plant-powered slumber, you’ll first need to prepare a chamomile syrup.

Chamomile Syrup Ingredients

  • 1 tbsp dried chamomile flowers
  • 1 cup organic sugar
  • 1 cup filtered water

Chamomile Syrup Preparation

Heat your stovetop to medium-heat and add each of the ingredients to a saucepan. Allow the ingredients to simmer until the sugar completely dissolves. Then, take the pan off the heat and strain the mixture with a mesh sieve.

Paloma Mocktail Ingredients

  • ½ grapefruit, juiced
  • 2 tbsp chamomile syrup
  • 1 cup sparkling water
  • ½ cup crushed ice
  • ½ tsp orange zest
  • 10 mg CBD oil
  • Rose salt
  • Chamomile flowers, for garnish

Paloma Mocktail Preparation

In a glass, add the crushed ice. Then, combine each of the liquids: grapefruit juice, chamomile syrup, sparkling water and CBD oil. Finish the mocktail by adding orange zest and rose salt to the top, then the chamomile flowers for garnish.

#5 Lemon Sage CBD Mocktail

Sage graces dishes around the world, and it doesn’t fall short in the mocktail arena, either. This herb is earthy and full of nutrients that can help support your overall health and wellness, including:

  • Memory
  • Brain health
  • Healthy blood sugar levels
  • Oral health
  • Digestive health
  • Skin health
  • Bone health

In terms of flavor, sage is herbaceous and slightly bitter. This makes lemon a perfect accompaniment, as its zesty and tangy qualities provide a refreshing contrast to the earthiness of the sage. 

Ingredients

  • 3 oz lemon juice
  • 6 sage leaves
  • 5 oz lemonade
  • ¼ cup sparkling water
  • ½ cup crushed ice
  • 15 ml simple syrup or agave
  • 10 mg CBD oil

Preparation

In a cup, muddle half of the sage leaves. Then, add the crushed ice. After, combine the lemon juice, lemonade, sparkling water, syrup and CBD oil. Then, garnish with the remaining sage leaves. 

#6 Blackberry Thyme CBD Mocktail

A staple of many culinary traditions, thyme is an herb that consists of over 400 subspecies — each beneficial in their own right. Topically, thyme may help to reduce blemishes, but when consumed, it can help boost your mood, regulate your blood pressure and support your immune function, much like CBD.

Combining each of the ingredients in this CBD mocktail recipe offers a multidimensional taste. The sweet blackberries mix with thyme’s savory undertones, while CBD oil adds a touch of bitterness that balances the sweetness of the berries. 

Ingredients

  • 2 cups blackberries
  • ¾ cup granulated sugar
  • ¼ cup fresh lime juice
  • 1 cup sparkling water
  • Thyme sprigs, for garnish
  • 15 ml simple syrup or agave
  • 10 mg CBD oil

Preparation

In a small saucepan, combine the blackberries, granulated sugar and lime juice over medium heat. Stir occasionally until the blackberries release their juices and the sugar is dissolved, creating a syrupy consistency. This should take about five to seven minutes.

Remove the saucepan from heat and let the blackberry mixture cool slightly.

Strain the blackberry mixture through a fine mesh sieve or cheesecloth into a clean container, pressing gently to extract as much liquid as possible. Discard the solids and set the blackberry syrup aside to cool completely.

In a separate pitcher, combine the sparkling water, simple syrup or agave and CBD oil. Stir gently to mix. Add the cooled blackberry syrup to the pitcher and stir until well combined. Fill your serving glass with ice cubes and pour the blackberry mixture over the ice. Garnish each glass with a sprig of fresh thyme for an aromatic touch.

#7 Lavender Orange DreamCBDcicle Mocktail 

For a creamy treat, reach for an eclectic combination of orange and lavender. The aromatic flower pairs wonderfully with CBD to support a restful sleep and ease feelings of nervousness. 

Ingredients

  • 1 cup freshly squeezed orange juice 
  • ½ cup coconut milk (or almond milk for a lighter option) 
  • 1 tablespoon honey or agave syrup
  • ½ tsp vanilla extract
  • 10 mg CBD oil 
  • 3 tsp dried lavender 
  • Orange slices, for garnish 
  • Fresh lavender sprigs, for garnish 
  • Ice cubes

Preparation

In a small saucepan, heat the coconut milk (or almond milk) over low heat. Add the dried lavender to the saucepan and let it simmer gently for five to seven minutes to infuse the milk with lavender flavor. 

Remove from heat and let it cool slightly. 

Strain the lavender-infused milk through a fine mesh sieve into a clean container, discarding the lavender. In a blender, combine the freshly squeezed orange juice, lavender-infused coconut milk, honey or agave syrup, vanilla extract and CBD oil. Blend until smooth and well combined. 

Taste the mixture and adjust sweetness or CBD dosage in the recipe if necessary. Fill your glass with ice, then pour the orange-lavender CBD mocktail mixture into the glasses. Garnish each glass with a slice of orange and a sprig of fresh lavender for a decorative touch.
