Can CBD cure a hangover? (plus a delicious CBD-infused cocktail recipe)

New Year’s Eve is a time for celebrating the year gone by and bringing in the new one with family and friends. A time to relax and have fun… sometimes too much fun. If you are planning an alcohol-fuelled party or gathering this New Year’s Eve, have you wondered whether CBD-infused drinks, such as a CBD cocktail, might actually cure or prevent a hangover?

CBD is great for maintaining an anxiety-free, relaxed mood. Whereas alcohol is known to be a depressive. Could the two work in harmony to balance each other out?

Well there’s only one way to find out. Try our CBD cocktail recipe this New Year’s Eve, and let us know!

Mango Sorbet CBD cocktail

Makes 8 servings.

  • 900g frozen mango chunks (or 4 ripened, skinned and chopped mangoes, mixed with 120ml water)
  • 200ml dark or white rum (whichever you prefer)
  • 4 tablespoons cane sugar syrup
  • 10 sprays* of water soluble CBDX spray or 15 drops* of 4% CBD oil
  • 800ml soda water
  • Sprig of mint (optional)

Method

  1. Add the mango, rum, syrup and CBD into a food processor and blend until smooth
  2. Pour the mixture into a freezer safe container and freeze for 1-2 hours (depending on whether you are using fresh or frozen mango. Frozen mango will take less time in the freezer)
  3. Divide the mango scoops between 8 tall glasses
  4. Add a dash of soda water to each glass to ‘fill in the gaps’
  5. Finish with a sprig of mint, and serve.
