Zero-Proof Sparkling Citrus Hi-Fi Paloma

By: Jamie Evans, The Herb Somm

In the world of cannabis mixology, citrus fruits top the list when it comes to complementary ingredients that enhance an infused beverage. Lemons, limes, and grapefruits are incredibly terpene-rich and provide bright, uplifting notes that energize the palate. When crafting cocktails or spirit-free mixed drinks at home, citrus fruits can liven up some of the other ingredients that you’re working with. They not only contribute to the complexity of a drink, but citrus fruits also help balance the beverage’s profile due to a natural blend of sour/sweet aromas and flavors. 

Remarkably, hops also present citrusy notes that can be effortlessly infused into our favorite imbibes. This is one of the reason’s why I love creating citrus-forward drinks with Hi-Fi Hops

Zero-Proof Sparkling Citrus Hi-Fi Paloma

Both refreshing and energizing, this non-alcoholic Sparkling Citrus Hi-Fi Paloma is the perfect beverage to wind down summer. Including grapefruit juice, lime juice, lemon juice, Hi-Fi Hops 18:1 Hoppy Sparkling Water, and a hint of sweet agave, this alcohol-free mixed drink will quench your thirst while keeping you feeling balanced with a high CBD to low THC ratio, perfect for afternoon enjoyment. This delightful zero-proof blend is also easy-to-make, taking less than 5 minutes to assemble. For best results, make sure to use fresh-squeezed citrus juices and be sure to add a salted rim to make the flavors pop.
