National CBD Day is August 9th, but we don't really need a "holiday" as an excuse to mix our broad spectrum hemp with booze for an ultra-chill libation.
Plus, we already love the grape-based organic vodka from Hanson of Sonoma, so this one's a no-brainer.
To make the Calmer Palmer—a truly Californian take on the classic Arnold Palmer—you'll want to start with family-owned Hanson's Meyer Lemon vodka, which you can buy online or at various high-end local retailers.
Then, you'll need to order up some cans of Recess, a sparkling water infused with broad spectrum hemp and adaptogens that comes in several fresh fruit flavors. For our purposes, we're going for Peach Ginger.
This pair of cool Cali brands teamed up to create recipe that would promote total R&R—CBD, of course, is commonly used to soothe anxiety and promote rest. But you know this already, so go ahead and get the recipe below. Cheers!
To Make the Calmer Palmer
1 1/2 oz Hanson of Sonoma Organic Meyer Lemon Vodka
1 oz Recess Peach Ginger
1 oz fresh-squeezed organic Meyer lemon juice
1/2 oz organic agave
Candied ginger for garnish
Mix the organic Myer lemon juice, Hanson of Sonoma Organic Meyer Lemon Vodka, and agave in a cocktail shaker. After adding ice, shake for 10 seconds and pour into a collins glass with fresh ice. Top it off with Recess Peach Ginger and garnish with candied ginger for the finished result.
