Summer is almost over and you need one more fun get-together, STAT!
Rooted Hemp Co. has your back with these recipes and ideas for relaxing with your friends and loved ones.
First up, get a cocktail (or a mocktail!) in to everybody’s hands! You’ll love this mojito-inspired Blackberry Smash made with Rooted Hemp Co. Mint flavored Clear Solution CBD. We put a modest 25mg of CBD in this drink, which means you’ll feel great and could probably enjoy a second cocktail if you wanted to. Ask your friends what they prefer; the CBD amount is customizable per drink.
Here’s a fun video by our founder, Violet Robles, showing you how to make it:
Blackberry Smash CBD Cocktail
For one drink:
2 fresh blackberries
5-6 mint leaves
½ a lime
2 ounces vodka or gin
1 can of blackberry soda
25 mg of Clear Solution CBD – Mint flavor
2-4 blackberries and more mint for garnish
Edible flowers like borage (totally optional, totally pretty!)
- In the bottom of a tall glass, add a couple of blackberries and mint leaves and muddle or SMASH them together to release all the aromatics. Add the fresh lime juice and fill your glass with ice.
- Pour in your spirit of choice, then top off with blackberry soda and a garnish of mint leaves, fresh blackberries and edible flowers if you’ve got them! Add in your 25mg of Rooted Hemp Co. Mint Clear Solution and give it a gentle stir. Sip and enjoy!
Now that you’ve got something to sip on, it’s time to dig into a delicious CBD snack: Pineapple Pico De Gallo! This salsa is fun, fresh and easy to make.
