Tips and Tricks for Perfect CBD Mocktails

Now that you’ve got your ingredients and tools ready, let’s explore some tips and tricks for crafting the perfect mocktail. These tips and tricks will ensure your drinks are not only delicious but also perfectly balanced and refreshing.

Choosing the Right CBD Tincture

When it comes to making CBD mocktails, the choice of tincture can make all the difference. We recommend using a non-flavored CBD tincture for several reasons:

  • No Competing Flavors: A non-flavored tincture won’t clash with the other ingredients in your mocktail, allowing the fresh, zesty, and sweet flavors to shine, whether it's fresh orange juice or coconut cream.
  • Pure CBD: Our non-flavored tinctures are made with pure CBD, ensuring you get all the benefits without any unwanted hempy taste.
  • Versatile: Non-flavored CBD tinctures can be used in a variety of recipes, not just drinks. They’re a great all-around option to keep in your kitchen.

With these tools on hand, you’re well on your way to crafting the perfect CBD mocktail. In the next section, we’ll share some tips and tricks to help you make the best alcohol-free CBD cocktails at home.

Sugar vs Simple Syrup 

There are famously two ways to make a mojito: with sugar or with simple syrup. While the debate around the proper way to make a mojito rages on, the end result is very similar, so it’s all about your preference. 

If you use sugar: Add two teaspoons of sugar to your glass with the mint leaves and muddle the mint and sugar before you add the lime juice. You will want to muddle until most of the sugar is broken down with the mint oils.

If you use simple syrup: Simply add ½ oz to your glass after the mint and lime have been muddled. 

Experimenting with Flavors

Don’t be afraid to get creative with your CBD mocktails:

  • Herbs and Fruits: Experiment with different herbs like basil or fruits like berries to create unique flavor combinations.
  • Infusions: Try infusing your simple syrup with herbs or spices for an extra layer of flavor. For example, mint-infused simple syrup can add an extra minty kick to your Nojito.

By following these tips and tricks, you’ll be able to make the best CBD mocktails that are not only delicious but also perfectly tailored to your taste. Make sure to add lots of crushed ice to ensure a refreshing experience. Up next, we’ll share some simple CBD mocktail recipes that you can try at home.
