Recipe: “GREEN CLAW” WITH SPRIG CBD-INFUSED SODA

 

Infusing cannabis into alcohol is nothing new, but nowadays it’s still on the coattails of illegality. Hemp-infused vodka gives consumers the flavors of cannabis without the THC that some may not want to consume simultaneously with alcohol. We used Humboldt’s Finest—Humboldt Distillery’s hemp-infused vodka, which is available in all 50 states—to create cocktails that are perfect for a Labor Day party or the lazy, last licks of summer lay-out.

Servings: One cocktail

Start to finish: 5 minutes
  • 1 can of Sprig Citrus CBD Soda 
  • ½ of a lime
  • ½ of a lemon
  • ¼ tablespoon sugar or simple syrup
  • 2 ounces of hemp-infused vodka
  • Mint bouquet and lime wheel for garnish

 

Note: Start by drinking roughly 25% of your Sprig soda, this will help the CBD skip the line of the alcohol and make room for the White Claw-esque monstrosity you’re about to create. You can also collect the extras of multiple cans to make a side batch of punch, which can be used for refills. 

Build the drink in a cocktail tin or pint glass filled with ice. Pour the juices, simple syrup and vodka over the ice. Seal the tin and shake well until the tin feels icy to the touch.
