Elevate Brunch With A Peachy CBD-ellini Cannabis Cocktail
As a classic brunch drink, Bellini’s are a fun way to celebrate a laid back Sunday. Combining a mouthwatering blend of cannabis-infused peach purée, peach liqueur, and Prosecco, this easy-drinking low dose recipe is not only delicious, but uplifting with spritzy characteristics that refresh the palate. This drink is best prepared using the summer season’s freshest white peaches, giving the beverage a glowing pink hue.
If you don’t have the supplies to infuse honey at home (find the recipe in my book, Cannabis Drinks), simply substitute for regular honey and then add your favorite unflavored CBD or THC tincture (at your preferred dose) into the peach purée ingredients, then follow the directions as written.

Begin by preparing the cannabis-infused peach purée. Add the peach, lemon juice, and infused honey into a food processor or blender. Purée until smooth and creamy, then transfer into a 4-ounce Mason jar (save the leftover purée for a second round!).
