CBD Blue Arrow Cocktail Recipe 

A Blue & Boozy "Bullseye" — Tribe's CBD Blue Arrow Cocktail

A common difficulty new mixologists face is how to measure citrus fruits accurately. How much juice do lemons and limes have? Heck, is there an average amount of fluid per fruit?

Although the total juice content may vary, most chefs agree lemons tend to have two or three tablespoons of liquid per fruit. Since limes are smaller, you should expect no more than two tablespoons of juice at the high end.

Interestingly, there is a sneaky way to maximize the liquid content in your citrus fruits. All you have to do is place one in the microwave for about 10 – 20 seconds. This short blast of heat should be enough to get more juice flowing from your fruit.

However, please don’t put cut-up citrus fruits in your microwave. If you do this, it will likely dry out your fruit, thus negating the intended effect. The only way to make this tip work is to put your whole citrus fruits in the microwave.


  • 2 oz gin

  • Add ice and shake for a few seconds
  • Strain into a pre-chilled serving glass
  • Garnish with a Maraschino cherry and Tribe CBD oil

If you’re mixing this Blue Arrow for friends, it may be an excellent occasion to share some impressive archery facts. For instance, Star Trek fans may be shocked to hear actor William Shatner prefers bows and arrows over phasers and lasers!

Or, if you want to be technical, Shatner is a “toxophilite.” In case you couldn’t guess, toxophilite refers to an athlete skilled in the art of archery.

King James II was another famous dude in the history of archery. Although the British monarch wasn’t involved in the sport per se, he tried to re-invigorate interest in this military training. Indeed, King James II was so keen to get people to practice archery that he banned pastimes like golf and soccer.

Fascinatingly, reports from the National Safety Council suggest King James II was right to favor bows over golf balls. Amazingly, golf and fishing have roughly two times more injuries than pro archery.
