Winding down after a long work week? Hosting a dinner party for your friends? No matter the occasion, creating a great cocktail is the perfect way to feel just a little bit more classy and chic. At Brielle, we like to go the extra mile by adding some luxury probiotic CBD oil to our favorite recipes. Turn your favorite drink up a notch by following this simple recipe below.
Ingredients - serves two
1 cup of water
2 teaspoons of Liquid Stevia
2 tablespoons of culinary-grade dried lavender
1 cup of ice
2 sprigs of fresh rosemary
4 oz of gin (or alcohol substitute)
4 tablespoons of lemon juice
1 dropper of Brielle CBD
2 lemon peel strips
Make some lavender simple syrup by first heating up your water and sugar in a small saucepan on medium-high heat until it reaches a boil. Then, change to low heat and add your dried lavender. Let simmer for 5 minutes and remove from heat. Let your mixture steep (soak) for 10 minutes and strain it into a jar. Allow syrup to cool.
Fill a large cocktail shaker approximately halfway with ice and add rosemary, gin, and lemon juice.
Add four tablespoons of lavender simple syrup and 1 dropper of Brielle CBD.
Vigorously shake the cocktail for about a minute. (Make sure your shaker is closed tight!)
Strain your cocktail into martini glasses.
Garnish with lemon peel strips
