The Japanese cocktail is one of the most misleading names in classic cocktail canon. Contrary to what you’d expect, there are no Japanese flavors in this American blend. Allegedly, New York bartenders named this cocktail in honor of a 19th-century Japanese diplomat who was in the Big Apple.

You won’t find sake or midori in this cocktail, but it has lots of fantastic flavors. Anyone who is a fan of cognac should try this strangely named wonder. Oh yeah, and don’t forget to add a little splash of our citrus-flavored CBD oil!

Japanese CBD cocktail recipe

Nowadays, most bartenders serve the Japanese cocktail in a pre-chilled coupe glass. However, it is more likely that mixologists originally made this drink in a highball glass filled with ice. In addition, some historians claim that the original recipe did not include lime juice.

Instead of lime or lemon juice, an “authentic” Japanese 1860 cocktail probably only had a lemon peel garnish. To better penetrate all of these citrus-like essential oils, bartenders often stir their lemon peel into the drink before serving.

Whichever variant you try, we recommend avoiding orgeot and citrus juice. Take a few sample sips to find your ideal balance between tart and sweet.


  • 2 ounces of cognac
  • 1/2 oz orig. Syrup
  • 1/2 oz lime juice
  • 1 drop of Tribe CBD oil (citrus)
  • 1 shot of Angostura bitter
  • Lemon peel


  • Pour cognac, orgeat syrup, lime juice, and Angostura bitters into a cocktail shaker
  • Add ice and shake for about eight seconds
  • Strain into a pre-cooled coupe glass
  • Garnish with a lemon zest and tribe of CBD oil

Unless you’re familiar with tiki drinks, you probably don’t know what the hell orgeat syrup is. In short, Orgeat is an almond-infused simple syrup with a hint of orange blossom water. While this ingredient is widely found in dozens of tropical beverages, it is best known for its role in mai tai.

While most liquor stores should stock a few brands of Orgeat, you can easily replace them with a dash of Amaretto. While not ideal, you can also use a pinch of almond milk if you have everything on hand.

Since we’re talking about the “Japanese Cocktail,” it’s worth noting that Kyoto University recently published a fascinating study on CBD for social anxiety. In this study, scientists gave teenagers either CBD capsules or placebo pills and monitored their anxiety for a month. According to the data, students taking CBD had significantly lower levels of anxiety than the placebo group.
