Baijiu, China’s most popular spirit, has a reputation for being unpalatable and jarring for those unacquainted with its complex, almost medicinal qualities. However, this Chinese New Year CBD cocktail uses fortuitous citruses in both the Sous Weed tincture and the Mandarin orange syrup to brighten the more pungent notes while the addition of muddled kumquat helps tamper out the herbal edge, resulting in a high-proof savory concoction that is sure to bring good luck with each sip.
