If you’ve already mastered our CBD Screwdriver recipe, then it’s time to move on to the CBD Madras. Don’t let the fancy name fool you: this cocktail is only one step up from a Screwdriver in terms of difficulty—and that’s not saying much! Anyone who loves simple ingredients and fruity flavors is going to adore our take on this vodka-based drink.

Since a classic Madras has a lime wedge garnish, we thought it’d be fitting to add a pinch of our citrus-flavored CBD oil. We bet your brunch buddies will feel extra chill as they sip this tangy CBD treat.

There are only two differences between a Screwdriver and a Madras. First, the Madras has cranberry juice in addition to orange juice. Second, you should garnish a Madras with a lime wedge. That’s it!

Since the Madras is so easy to make, it has also undergone many variations throughout the years. For instance, some people swap out OJ for other juices like pineapple or grapefruit. You could also top your Madras with bubbly seltzer water, ginger ale, or a sweet lemon-lime soda. For extra zing, why not experiment with a citrus-flavored vodka?

Please feel free to swap out the ingredients below to fit your tastebuds. Whatever you choose, we’re sure you’ll make a marvelous Madras!
