When it comes to immune boosting supplements, elderberries are a pretty big deal. Even before the COVID-19 pandemic, people often touted the health benefits of this incredible fruit. While scientists are still debating whether elderberries work, we bet you will enjoy this elderberry-infused cocktail. Even if you don’t get an immune boost with this drink, you will feel refreshed.

Oh yeah, and don’t forget to add a little tribe of CBD oil to this berry drink. With both CBD and elderberries, this cocktail can “cure what ails you!”

CBD elderberry cocktail recipe

You won’t find elderberries in your store’s vegetable section, but they have been grown for thousands of years. Typically black, these berries are native to many European countries and have long been used in folk medicine.

While many traditional healers used elderberries to treat patients, you cannot eat elderberries straight from the bush. Interestingly, raw elderberries contain toxic compounds. Not only are these berries potentially poisonous, they also have an unpleasant bitter taste.

Elderberries are only safe after cooking (with a pinch of sugar, of course). We use traditional elderberry syrup for this cocktail recipe, but you can add elderberry wine if your store has it.

ingredients

  • 1 tbsp elderberry syrup
  • 1 ounce of vodka
  • Club soda to fill
  • 1 drop of Tribe CBD oil
  • Lemon wedge

Directions

  • Pour elderberry syrup and vodka into a pre-chilled Rocks glass
  • Stir with a bar spoon
  • Pour on the seltzer water
  • Add ice if desired
  • Garnish with tribe CBD oil and a lemon

At this point, scientists are still unsure whether elderberry is the immune booster that many claim it is. However, many studies suggest that these berries are not BS.

For example, researchers from the Hebrew University followed how elderberry syrup affected a group of flu patients. Compared to the placebo group, those who took elderberry had fewer signs of coughing and needed less medication.

Another study tracked the effects of elderberry on a group of frequent fliers. Interestingly, people who took elderberry capsules had fewer sick days than the placebo participants. Even if the elderberry participants fell ill, it was usually less difficult compared to the non-elderberry group.

While these studies are encouraging, please remember that they are only preliminary. More research is needed to understand how elderberries work their magic.
