CBD Bourbon Ball Recipe
Have you noticed that spherical ice is on fire lately? Or, to be more accurate, sphere-shaped ice is becoming “cooler” than “square” ice cubes.
According to many cocktail aficionados, spherical ice is far superior to regular cubes due to its slower dilution rate. Not only that, circular ice has less surface area than ice cubes. Hence, even as sphere-shaped ice melts, it won’t release as much water into your drink.
The benefits of these “ice balls” are pretty immense, especially if you enjoy sipping your cocktails for a long time. Chances are, ice spheres will keep your drink cooler than regular ice cubes without risking too much dilution.
If you haven’t already given ice spheres a spin, we’d recommend testing them out in this bourbon ball cocktail. In a sense, you could say the name beckons for one!
- 2 oz bourbon
- 1 oz crème de cacao
- ¼ oz amaretto
- 1 dropperful Tribe CBD oil
- Dark chocolate shavings, garnish
- Pour bourbon, crème de cacao, and amaretto into a mixing glass
- Add ice and stir until well-chilled
- Strain into a pre-chilled serving glass
- Top with Tribe CBD oil and chocolate shavings
As a dark chocolate bar’s percentage increases, so does its “bitterness” profile. However, people who can get their palate attuned to bitter notes may experience higher nutritional benefits.
In fact, recent reports suggest people need to eat at least 70 percent dark chocolate bars to have any healing effects. If you’re struggling to handle 70 percent right off the bat, consider working your way up to this mark. It may take time to refine your taste buds, but the antioxidant benefits are so worth it.
For any health nuts out there, you should also consider adding cacao nibs to your daily routine. These bits of dried beans are as “raw” as you’ll ever experience chocolate. Indeed, since these have zero sugar or milk additives, they have an almost unpalatable bitter flavor.
However, since more people are getting into the health benefits of chocolate, it’s getting easier to find cacao nibs online and in health food stores. Go ahead and give these nibs a try if you’re interested in the max benefits of chocolate.
