Cannabis-Infused Mocktails for the COVID Time Holidays
Considering the sheer number of changes we’ve collectively had to make this holiday season, why not throw another into the mix? Switch up your typical drinking routine with some cannabis-infused mocktails. They’ll elevate your evening in a way real cocktails could only dream of.
December 22, 2020
The best part about cannabis-infused cocktails? They don’t require you to go through extra lengths to prepare cannabis for consumption. Forget about decarboxylating buds in your oven or stirring oil over a pot for hours. All you have to do is get your hands on some cannabis tincture and these mocktails will basically make themselves.
What kind of cannabis tincture should I use?
Different Washington dispensary locations have different products available. But you’re pretty much guaranteed to find a tincture of some sort wherever you go. At Piece of Mind Cannabis, we have plenty of cannabis tinctures to choose from.
The fun part about making cannabis-infused mocktails is that you can customize your drinks down to the exact effects you desire. There are many variations, with ratios of CBD and THC that range from very intoxicating to completely non-intoxicating.
This means if you’d rather make a CBD mocktail and not get high, you can do so. Just select a tincture with a high CBD content and low THC. Or, select a good ratio of the two for balanced effects.
Of course, you’ll need to use your best judgment when selecting the right tincture for your drinks. If you plan to try various flavors and recipes, choose an unflavored tincture because you can cover its earthy flavor with your mocktail ingredients.
If you have a specific drink in mind, go ahead and select a tincture that would mix well. For example, if you’re making a piña colada, a tropical tincture would pair well. You wouldn’t want to throw a mint or cinnamon tincture in your piña colada recipe, though.
Want a mocktail that gets you nice and high for the holidays? Select a high THC tincture and add a healthy dose. Don’t want to get blasted for the holidays? Choose a tincture with a more balanced ratio or opt for CBD only.
Here are some infused mocktails that go great with the holiday season.
Cannabis Cosmo (serves 1)
Nothing says the holidays like some tasty cranberry cocktails. We love cosmos and think they are just as good without the alcohol. This cannabis cosmo recipe is super easy and delicious. Here’s what you’ll need:
- 2 oz. cranberry juice
- 1 oz. lime juice
- 5 oz. club soda
- Splash of orange juice
- Cannabis tincture
- Lime wedge and sugar (optional for garnish)
Fill a tall glass or shaker with ice. Pour your desired amount of tincture, cranberry juice, lime juice, and club soda into the glass or shaker. If you’d like, you can coat the rim of your glass with the lime wedge and then dip it into sugar to create a sugar-coated rim.
Now add a splash of orange juice, shake it or stir, and garnish with the lime.
There you have it! An easy, delicious cannabis mocktail.
Infused Peach Bellini (serves 2)
Peach Bellinis make for great holiday drinks. They’re super easy to adapt to a cannabis cocktail, as well. Here’s what you’ll need:
- 1/2 cup peach nectar
- 1/2 cup pureed peaches
- 1 tsp sugar or honey
- 2-3 scoops lemon sherbet
- 1 ½ cup sparkling lemonade
- Desired tincture dose
- Mint for garnish
Mix the honey or sugar with the peach nectar and distribute it into two cups. Now, scoop the sherbet evenly between the two cups, along with a topping of sparkling lemonade and your desired dose of cannabis tincture.
Add mint for garnish and you’ve got a delicious infused mocktail!
Merry Moscow Mule with Cannabis (serves 1)
We love Moscow Mules any time of year, but they are especially festive around the holidays when we give them a special twist. With cannabis instead of alcohol, you don’t have to worry about not getting elevated with this drink. Here’s what you need:
- Small bunch of rosemary needles
- Pinch of thyme
- 2 oz cranberry juice
- 4 oz ginger beer
- Desired dose cannabis tincture
- Lime for garnish
Muddle your rosemary and thyme until you get a nice aroma. Add the cranberry juice, tincture, and ice, and shake well. Pour mixture into a copper mug with more ice, along with the ginger beer. Garnish with a slice of lime.
Potent Peppermintinis (serves 3)
This is for the extreme holiday drink heads. If you’re craving those chocolatey, pepperminty holiday flavors, you’ll want to make a potent peppermintini. Here’s what you need:
- ½ cup of chocolate chips, melted
- ¼ cup crushed candy canes
- 6 oz. chocolate milk
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- ½ tsp peppermint extract
- 2 tbsp heavy cream or coconut milk
- Desired tincture dose
Carefully melt your chocolate chips and pour the mixture onto a plate. On another plate, add the crushed candy canes. Dip the rims of your drink glasses into the chocolate, followed by the candy canes.
Now, fill the bottom of the glasses with chocolate and place them in the freezer. To make the drink, combine the chocolate milk with peppermint extract, cannabis tincture, and heavy cream or coconut milk and shake well.
Fill glasses with ice and divide the drink evenly into each glass. If you have leftover candy canes, garnish with them.
