First, what is CBD and what are its benefits?   CBD, also known as Cannabidiol Oil or Cannabis Oil, is a non-psychoactive compound found in hemp plants. When taken, whether that be as a CBD oil or a CBD infused drink, it can work to regulate your Endocannabinoid system (ECS), it supports this network of receptors to help your body achieve optimal balance. This may help to aid sleep, focus, reduce stress, pain, inflammation and support your immune system. Helping you find your calm, leaving you more productive, less stressed and more you.

How much CBD should I take?  When it comes to CBD, dosage and effects are totally personal. We recommend starting with a dose of around 15MG (which you can find in a single serve of TRIP CBD infused drinks or a few drops of CBD oil). Then work from there, increasing your dosage as and when you need to!

What happens when you mix CBD and alcohol?  Mixing CBD and alcohol into a cocktail makes for the perfect way to unwind after a stressful day, the CBD may help with focus and stress relief, helping you make the most of any social occasion or a night in at home! Although the effects are totally personal, many people find that CBD cocktails help them feel calmer and happier, alleviating some of the more negative feelings of alcohol, so you’re ready to keep the good vibes flowing.

Simple Serves

Gin & Elderflower Mint:

This effortless mix is our go-to when entertaining. TRIP Elderflower Mint’s elevated notes of grapefruit and lemon balm work brilliantly with gin. Simply fill a long glass with ice, pour in your preferred gin and top up with Elderflower Mint. Garnish with a pink grapefruit wedge, a slice of cucumber or whatever you have available - a sprig of rosemary or fresh mint look great.

Peach Ginger & Tequila / Vodka:

The gentle kick of our TRIP Peach Ginger works perfectly with vodka or tequila - again, great for an easy at home option. Just fill a long glass with ice and pour over your preferred vodka/tequila and top up with Peach Ginger (we like to garnish with a slice of lemon or any fruit you’ve got to hand). Sip and transport yourself to warmer days - sundowners sorted!

Lemon Basil & Vodka:

The added botanicals in this delicious simple mix, make it taste like a complex cocktail, even with just two ingredients: Vodka and Lemon Basil TRIP. Simply fill a long glass with ice, measure out your preferred Vodka and top up with Lemon Basil. Lastly just garnish with a wedge of lemon, or add in some fresh mint leaves, happy days!

The TRIPSTER A firm favourite of the TRIP team, delightfully refreshing and so easy to create at home.

Recipe:  

3 slices of peeled cucumber

3 fresh mint leaves 50 ml gin

10 ml of lime juice

10 ml sugar syrup (we love Monin’s elderflower variety but any sugar syrup works well and can be replaced with agave)

25 ml TRIP Elderflower Mint

Method:   Mix your cucumber & mint in the base of your shaker. Add gin, lime and sugar syrup and shake it up! Strain into a chilled glass (we love a coupe glass) and top with 25 ml of Elderflower Mint. Lastly Add a thin slice of cucumber to garnish.

Cold Brew Martini

This delicious recipe replaces the traditional espresso with TRIP CBD Cold Brew Coffee. Our Speciality Guatemalan coffee is infused with CBD so you can enjoy jitter-free energy from this classic cocktail.

Recipe:

40ml vodka

30ml TRIP Cold Brew Coffee

20ml coffee liqueur

2 coffee beans as garnish

Method:

Add vodka, TRIP and coffee liqueur to a shaker with ice. Shake well and strain swiftly into a Martini glass, to make sure you get the Espresso Martini’s signature foam. Place your two coffee beans on top for a picture perfect TRIP moment.
