Whether you prefer your 'ritas shaken up with triple sec and lime or blended up with an avocado, You just can’t celebrate cinco de Mayo without a margarita. Am I right??
With CBD oil being one of the top products that the public has been informed about, nowadays, many people are extremely curious about CBD products. Since many are finding new ways to consume CBD oil, why not try CBD oil in your favorite margarita recipe?
In this post, you’ll learn a simple, tasty recipe for safely infusing CBD oil into your Cinco De Mayo Fiesta Siesta Margarita.
What Kind of Tequila To Use for a Margarita
One question people often ask before making their first margarita is what kind of tequila they should use. Although you could use any tequila variety, most bartenders recommend going with a blanco or a silver. Since these tequilas aren’t aged, they’re better suited for mixing. As a bonus, blanco tequilas are the most affordable, making them a perfect choice for large get-togethers.
However, you should never use the long-aged añejo tequilas in a margarita. It makes no sense to drown out the nuanced flavors of a high-priced añejo in any cocktail mixture.
Why Choose CBD Oil for Your Cocktail?
First of all, CBD oil is believed to have some good health benefits for people who may have some health conditions. For example, some people claim that CBD oil can soothe their mood so that they become more relaxed after taking their daily dose.
Incidentally, this is also why some people recommend a THC-infused cocktail. Take note that THC is that extract from the cannabis Sativa plant that causes a “high” feeling associated with marijuana.
So, people who take the CBD oil through cocktails will experience a double effect – the CBD oil will give a sedative-like effect and the cocktails will give the feeling of relaxation.
If you’re the type who feels frazzled at the end of the day, then you can try a CBD-oil-infused cocktail.

Do you like a salted rim on your margarita?
If you want to serve your margarita in an iconic salt-rimmed glass, you just need to prepare ahead of time. Take a wedge of lime and run the cut side all around the rim of your glass.
My favorite type of glass to use is a rocks glass, but you could also do this with margarita glasses too!
Once the rim of your glass has been wetted with the lime juice, turn it upside-down into a small dish of salt. I just use good old kosher salt, but there are all kinds of specialty margarita salts if you want to get fancy.
Last not least, since this is a CBD cocktail, we recommend adding a touch of high-quality CBD oil to your glass’s rim. The easiest way to do this is to squirt a few drops of our citrus CBD oil onto your lime wedge and then run it around the rim. Sure, this CBD might have subtle effects, but it certainly adds a unique touch to your fiesta siesta treat.
