Looking for all kinds of new festive ways to celebrate with your loved ones this holiday season? Me too! Here’s my new favorite: the CBD Espresso Martini. It’s a caffeined cocktail, extra creamy, with powerful calming and enlightening effects. Espresso martinis are also always my go to, but with CBD added, it’s even better. I added one of my favorite tinctures from SunMed, which I will link below. Keep reading to learn how to make a CBD Espresso Martini!
What You Need
To start making, first gather these basic items and ingredients. I prefer a metal shaker bottle and a standard martini glass, but anything that works! You’ll also want to find a coffee or chocolate liquor to be your martini base. Some people prefer a traditional Bailey’s, but for this recipe I snagged Godiva’s Chocolate Liquor – so tasty! (Try Total Wine if you’re trying to find it.)
- 0.75 ml Tito’s (Or vodka of choice!)
- 1.5 ml Godiva Chocolate Liquor
- 1.0 ml SunMed CBD Tincture (Or one of your preference, read more about CBD here.)
- 1 Shot Espresso (Espresso machine, Nespresso, Keurig, etc.)
Now’s time to start making! Just for reference, a standard shot glass is 1.5ml.
First make your espresso, and in a separate cup, mix together the fresh espresso shot and the CBD oil. Do this quickly so that your shot doesn’t burn, however the heat helps to blend the CBD and liquid. Let it sit for a moment (sometimes I pour a splash of Bailey’s or the chocolate liquor to cool it down while I mix the other portion.
Now put ice in the shaker, add the vodka, liquor and espresso shot with CBD, and shake! Pour your concoction into a martini glass, it should be frothy and cool. Add an espresso bean or some dark chocolate shreds to top it off!
