Summer watermelon cooler drink with mint

Written by Kelly Ellis, author for Maddyn

 

Summer is right around the corner, which means it’s time to start planning for more time outdoors (while practicing safety and social distancing). And, nothing goes better with warm summer days and nights than a cold, delicious, seasonally-themed beverage!

 

With CBD-infused drinks being all the rage right now, I recently opened my own “test kitchen” to see what I could concoct using Maddyn’s natural-mint flavored CBD tincture (which I currently take daily to help me focus during the day and sleep better at night). After all, why not get my daily dose while sipping on an amazing summer drink?  

 

First, let’s talk a little about mint. I don’t think I’ve ever met a single person who dislikes it. The flavor is at once powerful and comforting, in some ways reminiscent of our favorite childhood treats and in others a nod to our favorite relaxation rituals after long, busy days. It is a great flavor compliment for so many things – cookies, ice cream, hot teas, and cold drinks. It is also a popular ingredient in many health and wellness products due to its ability to create a calming and soothing sensation.

 

When I first started using CBD oil several years back to help me wind down my mind before sleep, I was immediately sold on the potential benefits. I started feeling calmer before bedtime which helped me fall asleep faster. I also had fewer disruptions to my sleep, namely, waking up at 3 am with anxiety around the following day’s to-do list. However, I just couldn’t really get used to the “earthy” taste and approached it like a kid taking cough syrup. Then, I discovered Maddyn’s natural mint-flavored CBD tinctures which offered all of the same benefits I’d experienced but with an amazing and familiar flavor.

 

Now, on to the good stuff! In order to create these Summer CBD Drink Recipes for Maddyn, I started by thinking about the best flavor companions for mint-based beverages. I landed on watermelon, cucumber, and strawberry – and then I let my creativity take over. Note, while I consider myself to be a bit of a foodie, I am not a professional chef or bartender, so you may want to modify these recipes a bit to best fit your tastes and preferred CBD dosage. If you are new to CBD and have not experimented with dosage, it’s best to start small and figure out from there what works best for you. Having used CBD oil for several years, I tend to go with a higher dosage than someone just starting out should. I have made notes in each recipe about potential ingredient swaps and CBD quantity.

 

And, in case you were wondering, two of the three recipes below can be made with or without a little boozy addition.

 

Happy CBD sipping!
