5 to Try: CBD cocktails
CBD, as Oak Steakhouse head bartender Sarah Turbett reminds us, is a cannabidiol, â€śa naturally occurring compound found in the cannabis flower. It is safe, non-addictiveÂ and has quite a few therapeutic attributes.â€ť It is said to help relieve anxiety, insomnia, pain and also makes your coat glossy. And, as it turns out, itâ€™s the latest popular add-in to your favorite cocktails. No bail money needed, folks â€” itâ€™s legal in Tennessee.

Mixologist Turbett likes the complexity CBD lends to her concoctions. She describes the taste as â€śmostly neutral, with green, chlorophyll-like notes,â€ť and while I havenâ€™t ever actually thought about the taste of chlorophyll until now, Iâ€™m totally on board. Especially with The Three Graces: Castle & Key gin, Batavia arrack, Velvet falernum, fresh lemon juice and a topping of pineapple and tomato foam infused with CBD isolate. Order early; youâ€™ve got a lot of Googling to do.

If strawberry and gin donâ€™t appeal, dive into a Less Than Zero, a second CBD tincture-infused cocktail. This one features Blanco Tequila, Lillet Blanc, honey syrup, lime juice, spiced cherry bitters and the aforementioned tincture. And just for funsies, the drink is topped off with a lit, rolled up CBD flower that looks a lot more illegal than it is (because itâ€™s not illegal).

I know. Youâ€™re very conflicted because of all the controversy surrounding the Aperol Spritz. But you donâ€™t have to do that today. Instead, free your mind and order a nice, relaxing Gateway.
