Florida Sunshine Iced Tea With CBD Recipe

This Florida sunshine iced tea with CBD recipe is the perfect summer drink to kick back, relax, and soak in the rays. Think Long Island iced tea with a Sunshine State twist.

Well, alrighty! Now we come to the adult portion of our show. Get ready to let loose and enjoy one of my favorite libations.

This Long Island-esque iced tea goes back to my early cheffy days, when I first started at a crazy cool restaurant in Orlando called Pebbles. It was a casual gourmet restaurant that was wildly popular with the local foodies of the day. A bartender friend of mine was always looking to shake things up and this is a tribute to one of his creations.

In those days, I was a willing guinea pig and would drink just about anything he offered. Unfortunately, he left the restaurant and the area before I could get his recipe. I didn’t even have the drink’s real name. Alas.

So, I put in some time and recreated it as best I could. As a result, this bad boy has evolved over time and just seems to be getting better. The addition of CBD oil has made the effects of this amazing drink even better!

A word to the wise, this is quite drinkable but is also more potent than it tastes. May you find this as invigorating as it is relaxing.

Florida Sunshine Iced Tea Ingredients

  • 1 oz. rum
  • 1 oz. vodka
  • 1 oz. gin
  • 1 oz. tequila
  • 1 oz. triple sec (sometimes I sub Grand Marnier if I’m feeling dangerous!)
  • 2.5 oz. sweet and sour mix (Lefty O’Doul’s if you can find it)
  • 3-5 oz. orange juice
  • 20-30 drops Maku hemp CBD oil

Directions are simple: mix all ingredients, pour over ice, and enjoy!

Surprisingly, the CBD oil adds another level of relaxation to this beverage. It’s nothing too crazy, just a really enjoyable beverage to sip all through the spring and summer. Remember, always drink responsibly and love freely!
