Sip Spotlight: CBD Spritzer

Life can be stressful.

Cocktails can help reduce stress, but making them can be stressful.

Conundrum.

We created Mixicles because we love craft cocktails, but not the time, energy, skill, and expense they often require. Mixicles make cocktail crafting a breeze — all you need is a cube and your favorite spirit. Combine the two, and enjoy.

But what if cocktails aren't relaxing enough?

Enter CBD.

Cincinnati-based Queen City Hemp makes a line of CBD-infused seltzers that contain full-spectrum hemp extract and no artificial flavors (we eschew those too). We love combining Orange Blossom Pomegranate Mixicles with rum and Passion Fruit Hemp Seltzer, or Cranberry Rose Mixicles with vodka and Guava Hemp Seltzer.

CBD SPRITZER - VARIATION #1

Ingredients:

  • 2 Orange Blossom Pomegranate Mixicles cubes
  • 1 1/2 ounces rum
  • Passion fruit hemp seltzer

CBD SPRITZER - VARIATION #2

Ingredients:

  • 2 Cranberry Rose Mixicles cubes
  • 1 1/2 ounces vodka
  • Guava hemp seltzer

How to Mix:

Fill a collins glass with ice and the Mixicles cubes. Add the spirit, and top up with CBD seltzer. Stir, sip, and chillax.
