ICYMI: we recently swung by Crown Heights bar Ode To Babel, where we chatted with co-owner Marva Babel about building a community-minded space and the rise of CBD’s popularity in the world of bartending and mixology. While hanging out, Marva walked us through the steps to make a couple of the bar’s current featured cocktails, which we “Toast’d” with the addition of our flavored Full Spectrum Hemp Oils.
Ready to make some Toast’d cocktails of your own? If you can’t get to Brooklyn to grab a couple drinks to-go at Ode to Babel, break out your shaker and get ready to play bartender with these recipes.

- .5 oz fresh mango puree or juice
- .25 oz lime juice
- .5 oz cointreau (triple sec)

- .5 oz aperol

Combine tequila, mango puree, lime juice, cointreau, and your preferred dose of Toast Cold Pressed Orange Oil in a cocktail shaker. Shake vigorously, then strain over ice. Pour (or “float”) the aperol on top, and garnish with lime wheel.
