The weekend is almost here so what better way to unwind than a cocktail. Or better yet, a cocktail made with CBD!
Born on the island of Cuba the Mojito has evolved over centuries with its origin dating back hundreds of years. While its exact origin is still a subject of debate, one story traces the Mojito to a similar 16th-century drink known as "El Draque" named after Sir Francis Drake.
Its combination of sweetness, citrus, and herbaceous mint flavors make this rum-based cocktail an undeniable summer staple. Yes, it’s February but in the cold winter months, it’s easy to fantasize about sitting on a beach in some tropical paradise without a worry in the world and a refreshing drink in your hand.
Yes, CBD oil is great on its own but you can also add it to practically any food or beverage imaginable and we couldn’t think of a better pairing than our Sweet Mint CBD Oil and the mint-based Mojito.
