The weekend is almost here so what better way to unwind than a cocktail. Or better yet, a cocktail made with CBD!
The Negroni is an iconic Italian cocktail said to have been invented by Count Camillo Negroni at a bar in Florence circa 1919. As the story goes the Count demanded a stronger version of his favorite drink the Americano. So, the bartender at Hotel Baglioni added gin to the mix of Campari and sweet vermouth instead of the usual soda water.
This bittersweet cocktail is comprised of just 3 base ingredients. Campari, Gin & Sweet Vermouth. Each are unique products with herbal, fruit and spice notes that bring a perfectly balanced element to the Negroni. Devilishly simple to make, yet stunningly complex with each sip revealing something new. With this being said, those new to bitter flavor of Campari may find it to be something of an acquired taste.
CBD is great on its own but you can also add it to practically any food or beverage imaginable. Our ‘Natural Hemp’ CBD Oil is the ideal additive for this recipe. Unlike our blood orange or sweet mint this unflavored tincture will enhance the Negroni without altering its flavor profile. Checkout the recipe below!
