To make this festive yet calming drink, you’re going to need the following ingredients:
3 oz. of Ginger Ale or Sparkling Cider
5 drops of Citrus CBD Oil
3 oz. of Cranberry-Apple juice
½ tsp. of ground cinnamon
3 tbsp. of sugar
A lemon or lime
A squeeze of lemon or lime juice
To start, combine your sugar and cinnamon in a bowl and mix until evenly blended. Then, set aside. Take a lemon or lime wedge and rub it around the rim of your glass like you would preparing a margarita for salt. Now, flip the cup upside down and rub the wet rim into your sugar and cinnamon mixture, ensuring that the rim is evenly coated.
Next, fill the glass with a few ice cubes and pour in your Cran-Apple juice as well as the drop of CBD oil. Then, add a quick splash of lemon or lime juice, top off with ginger ale or sparkling cider, and serve!

This recipe didn’t initially include CBD, but we found that they made a perfect pairing. Here’s what you will need to make this Christmas-themed CBD margarita:
1 lime wedge
1 ½ oz. of silver tequila
5 drops of citrus CBD oil
1 oz. of coconut milk
½ oz. of orange liqueur
½ oz. of fresh lime juice
½ oz. of white cranberry juice
Garnish with: lime slice, cranberries, rosemary sprig
Begin by rimming your glass with a lime wedge to wet it. Then, place your cup upside-down and coat the rim in cinnamon sugar. Make sure the whole perimeter is covered!
If you have a cocktail shaker, now’s the time to bust that baby out. Fill your shaker with ice, tequila, coconut, orange liqueur, lime juice, white cranberry juice, and your CBD drops. Shake it well, ensuring all ingredients are mixed in. Then, strain your cocktail into a glass over some fresh ice. Garnish with your lime slice, cranberries, and rosemary sprigs. Once you’ve done this, you’re ready to drink!

We can’t think of anything better than some CBD-infused spiked hot chocolate. This is what you’ll need to make this deliciously festive CBD drink:
1 cup milk
1 cinnamon stick
¼ tsp. of nutmeg
1 star anise
1 oz. of chocolate chips
1 tbsp. of unsweetened cocoa powder
1 full dropper of Joy Organic’s Orange CBD oil
1 shot of whiskey
To make this drink, start by pouring your milk into a saucepan and placing it over medium-high heat. Then, add in the cinnamon stick, star anise, and nutmeg and bring to a boil. Once boiling, lower to simmer for about ten minutes.
After ten minutes, strain your mixture and pour the milk back into the pot. Stir in your chocolate chips and cocoa powder, whisking well. Bring your liquid to a boil and then take it off the heat entirely. Pour your hot chocolate into your favorite mug and then add in the drops of CBD. Pour your shot of whiskey and stir with your cinnamon stick. Finally, top with those mini marshmallows and you have a holiday-themed CBD oil cocktail.

For a deliciously calming yet boozy cocktail to whip together this holiday season, Healthy Hemp Oil has you covered. Here are the ingredients you’ll need to make your Spicy Apple Cider-tini:
1 cup of sugar
1 cup of water
1-2 inches of peeled ginger root
5 drops of vanilla-flavored CBD oil
2 cinnamon sticks
1 cup of apple cider
Garnish: a slice of apple, cinnamon stick
For this recipe, you must start by making the spicy simple syrup. To do this, start by adding your water, sugar, cinnamon sticks, and ginger to a saucepan over medium heat. Then, continue to heat your mixture until the sugar has dissolved. Let the mixture cool down completely, and then strain. This will remove the excess cinnamon and ginger.
Next, wet your rim with apple cider and then dip it in cinnamon sugar to coat the rim. Add your ice, more apple cider, vanilla-flavored CBD, and spicy syrup you made into a cocktail shaker and shake. Pour into a new glass over ice, garnish with your slice of apple and cinnamon stick, and get your dose of a boozy, festive chill.

2 oz. of cranberry vodka
4 oz. of cranberry juice

1 ½ oz. of white rum
Full dropper of mint CBD tincture
Start by adding the cranberries and mint into a cocktail shaker to blend the flavors. Then, add in your lemon juice and sugar. Pour in your vodka and cranberry juice, and then shake vigorously to ensure all ingredients are perfectly blended.
Then, stir in the white rum, ginger ale, and full dropper of CBD oil. Take a lime wedge and wet the rim of your glass with it, then dip it in table sugar. Finally, pour in your CBD drink, garnish with some cranberries, and you’re ready to enjoy the ultimate CBD mixer.
