Say “Hola” to CBD Sangria! The sun is burning through and summer is well on its way. We may not be heading to our favourite Spanish destination this summer as Covid has stopped us flying, so why not bring that classic taste of Spain to your garden and home.

In this classic Sangria recipe we’ve added our Tailored Berry Bliss CBD oil, and a touch of Tropical daze CBD oil too. A double serving of rich berry and summer fruit flavours help this classic alcoholic fruit punch chill you out.

Sangria, dating back to the 18th century translates to English as bloodletting! Bloodletting was a method of draining a person’s blood to aid and cure infection, and was used up until the 19th century. We are now adding the health-boosting benefits of CBD to this age-old staple of a national drink, without the use of a sharp blade!

The beauty of this particular drink is it can be made a day or two in advance (as long as you use the freshest fruit you can get your hands on)
