High For The Holidays: Mocktail Recipes With Cannabis-Infused Drinks

What better way to ring in the New Year than with a glass of cannabis-infused drinks? Move over booze; these mocktails are stepping up the non-alcoholic beverage game for a hangover-free celebration. 

When the laptops close, the bars open—and when the holidays are upon us, every day is an excuse to go out and have a drink. Yet, most of us can’t keep up with boozy nights every day of the week.

The good thing is that now there’s a new wave of alcoholic drinks that pack lots of flavors minus the headache.

Here’s our selection of cannabis-infused mocktails for you to try.

Cranberry Fauxgroni

Inspired by the Italian classic, the negroni, this drink delivers a tangy punch (minus the morning-after headache)

Ingredients

Makes one drink

  • Two shots of Artet Founder’s Blend No.1 (made with 75mg of THC per bottle—5mg per shot—extracted from Aster Farms flower)
  • Two shots of tonic water
  • One shot of cranberry juice
  • Three splashes of Angostura bitters
  • An orange rind

Preparation

Step 1

Combine the THC shots with the cranberry juice and two ice cubes in a tumbler glass; stir until fully dissolved.

Step 2

As you continue to stir, slowly incorporate the tonic water. Top with the Angostura bitters. Make sure all parts are fully integrated into the glass.

Step 3

Let the mix rest as you grab an orange rind and twist it over the glass and brush it across the rim. Adding the skin to the mix is optional (if you like that extra bitterness in your drink).

Step 4

Sip slowly. Remember that when you consume THC orally it takes 2-3 hours to fully kick in.

Mulled-Tail

This cocktail overflows with the aromas of the holidays; it’s an exotic twist on the traditional mulled wine (minus the Winter Wonderland queues). 

Ingredients

Makes one drink

  • Two shots of Aplós spirit (20mg of broad-spectrum hemp per serving)
  • One clove, crushed + a sprinkle of cinnamon
  • Five to ten fresh blueberries 
  • One teaspoon of agave syrup
  • Mint leaf
  • Crushed ice

Preparation

Step 1

Take the clove and mash it with a mortar and pestle. Grab a pinch and put it at the bottom of your glass. Top with the blueberries and gently smash them to create a thick paste.

Step 2

Add the crushed ice, the Aplós shots, and the agave syrup. Stir thoroughly or use a shaker for a more thorough mix. 

Step 3

Grab a mint leaf, put it between your fingers, and cover the glass rim with it (2-4 circles).

Step 4

Enjoy! Aplós doesn’t contain any THC, so the effect will be more of a body high. By the way: you can also prepare this in its hot version—just mix all the ingredients in a shallow pot at low temperature until you’ve reached the desired consistency.

Citrus Mash

This drink is as straightforward as they come. But don’t let it fool you; the refreshing powers make it one of the most enjoyable beverages (especially if you’re in a part of the world where it’s summer this time of year). 

Ingredients

Makes three to four drinks

  • One can of Lime Basil CANN
  • One can of Lemon Lavender CANN
  • One can of Grapefruit Rosemary CANN
  • Half a lemon; half a lime; half a grapefruit
  • Splash of soda

Preparation

Step 1

  • Crack open all your CANN’s and mix them in a pitcher with abundant ice cubes

Step 2

  • Squeeze all the citrus halves, avoiding any seeds from falling into the jug

Step 3

  • Top with soda until ¾ of the pitcher is full

Step 4 (Optional)

  • Grab two rosemary branches, crush them between your palms, and drop them in the mix

Hola In One

An ode to the top man on the green, this drink is tart and refreshing, inspired by the classic Arnold Palmer. There’s not much to the recipe, but that doesn’t mean it won’t send you farther into the sky than an Airmail shot. 

Ingredients

Makes a pitcher 4-6 servings

  • Three bags of black tea
  • 355 ml of Keef THC lemonade
  • Four teaspoons of brown sugar

Preparation

Step 1

  • Brew the tea bags in hot water; let them steep for 5-10 minutes or until the mix is brown (but not too dark)

Step 2

  • Let the tea cool down. Pour into the jug, adding six to eight big ice cubes inside.

Step 3

  • Pour the whole bottle of Keef lemonade and mix well until the concoction looks consistently distributed.

Step 4

  • Drink with caution. This bottle has 100 mg of pure THC and it’s not for the inexperienced cannabis drinker. We advise you to sip very slowly and let it work its way through you. Tee time anyone?
