Hemp Summer Cocktails -TomHemp's

It’s just an infusion – Sipping up Summer with hemp oil infused cocktails

We love the Spice Girls, but it does not need them to Spice Up (Y)our Life. With the first summer heatwave having left us not just tanned, but also curious on what it might be that refreshes us in undiscovered ways, we did not look any further than hemp oil. With its unique flavour profile and potential health benefits, it is a go-to ingredient in the mixology universe. So we´ve got the ultimate recipe inspiration to create delicious concoctions that are sure to impress your taste and that of whoever you share with… In case you like to share, because we are not too sure, we are ready to leave a sip to someone other than us. But surely we will not keep our favourite creations from you and take you back to the kitchen, this time with a shaker.

THE “WHAT TO KNOWS” ABOUT HEMP SEED OIL

Hemp seed oil has been having a moment not just lately. You may have seen it popping up in beauty products or heard about its benefits for skin and hair. But what exactly is that thing and how can you use it to make your very own unique cocktail? Derived from the seeds of the hemp plant, unlike its family member THC-rich marijuana, hemp seed oil does not contain amounts of THC or CBD and is therefore completely legal and does not leave one with any kind of “high”.

It is rich in omega-3 and 6 fatty acids, which are known to be essential nutrients benefiting the heart, metabolism and brain. Whilst Omega 6 is a reliable source providing the body with energy, it is Omega 3 that is critical for maintaining heart health, managing cholesterol, triglyceride, and blood levels. Alongside those effects, hemp oil is a source of magnesium and vitamin E. On another note of the beneficial side of facts, hemp oil has the ability to reduce inflammation in the body. The high dietary fibre content links it to the improvement of weight control.

And by mastering a list of numerous potential benefits, hemp oil-infused beverages deserve attention, not just ours. The subtle earthy note provides a delightful balance to the sweetness of syrups and juices, elevating the drink’s overall taste. Its distinct nutty aroma is perfect for creating craft cocktails with herbal undertones. So why stick with same-old-same-old when you can revamp your drinks with some sensational hemp-oil-infused libations?

Incorporating the seed oil with its nutritious ingredients into drinks is as easy as getting lost in translation.  Start by choosing a high-quality hemp seed oil, such as Tom Hemp’s, to ensure that you’re getting the best possible results. And then it is just to experiment with different flavour profiles and ratios. A little goes a long way with the oil, so the key in reference to dosage is to start small and find out the personal preferred amount based on that. The seed oil can be mixed into syrups or infusions and shaken up with classic gin or vodka martini for a unique twist on a timeless favourite. The possibilities are yours when it comes to incorporating it into creations.

A TASTE OF HEMP – WHAT OIL TO CHOOSE

Two makes a party when it is about our hemp seed oils. Hemp Seed Oil Gold is the bottle in our product range that brings a mild nutty flavour to the kitchen. The more earthy tasting partner comes with the name Hemp Seed Oil Deep Green. The most tasteful part of taste is that taste is different. So it is a personal choice what is the more suitable drop to go for. We prefer beating the heat infusing our cocktails with the nutty version. But what would running the world in Flip Flops be, without experimenting with the varieties there are… So even we love to share what we mixed up: Nothing can be better than your favourite flavours being taken into the shaker. And to inspire and trick that mixology-pro in you, here are our five choices of taste heavens for poolside cool downs and hot summer nights.
