The weekend is almost here so what better way to unwind than a cocktail. Or better yet, a cocktail made with CBD!
Developed back in the 1800s, the Old Fashioned was once known as the “Whiskey Cocktail” and it’s made with just that, whiskey, or more specifically, bourbon whiskey. The first use of the name "Old Fashioned" was said to have been at the Pendennis Club, a gentlemen's club founded in 1881 in Louisville, Kentucky. The recipe was said to have been invented by a bartender at that club in honor of Colonel James E. Pepper, a prominent bourbon distiller, who brought it to the Waldorf-Astoria Hotel bar in New York City.
Described as a potent concoction of spirits, bitters, water, and sugar. The Old Fashioned, an absolute classic.
CBD oil is great on its own but you can also add it to practically any food or beverage imaginable. Along with the traditional orange peel garnish our Blood Orange CBD oil is the perfect companion for the Old Fashioned and lends a nice note of natural citrus flavor. Mix one up and let us know what you think!
