When most people hear the word CBD (cannibidiol), they immediately conjure thoughts of Snoop Dogg and Smokey getting lifted on a Friday. However, contrary to popular belief, since CBD products don’t contain any traceable THC (the ingredient that gets you high), what you end up with after consuming it is a relaxing, stress-free kind of buzz perfect for kicking off the weekend.
Happy hour’s newest friend has become a big hit with crafty mixologists at trendy bars and restaurants across the globe. From updates to old faves like Negronis to new creative concoctions, it’s not hard to find a cocktail you’ll love.
If you’d prefer to enjoy CBD from the comfort of your home, we’ve rounded up a couple of buzzy drinks that are sure to help you relax, unwind and get your weekend off to a great start. Cheers!
2 oz. tequila blanco
1 oz. lime juice

Put all ingredients except for aquafaba and matcha powder in a cocktail shaker with ice.
Shake and strain. Add aquafaba. Emulsify with hand blender (use a regular blender if needed) and strain into a glass. Garnish with matcha powder.
