CBD cocktails: Refreshing summer drinks recipes

We recently hosted a live CBD cocktails making evening with Foundation.Fm - the female-led online station celebrating and giving opportunities to all genders and communities in the music industry.

The takeover included home tips and tricks by our Founder Hannah Glasson for the ultimate CBD cocktails. So, get your cans at the ready and your best party from home outfit planned because we’re about to tell you how to make three of our favourite CBD cocktails...

Pre-prep
  • Ice block. Using clean water (can be pre-boiled for extra clarity) fill up an ice cream tub or tupperware. Freeze (Remove your ice from its container, and use a rolling pin to break up the ice into large rocks)
Equipment:
  • Rolling pin/whacking tool & tea towel
  • Knife, chopping board, stirrer, spirit measure (egg cup works)
  • Strainer (a little sieve makes a good substitute)
  • A selection of glasses you like serving proper drinks in
