February 14, 2021
You may have noticed that we love mocktails here at Piece of Mind Cannabis. We get excited to make weed-infused drinks with a twist whenever possible. The reason? They’re tasty, fun to make, and free of alcohol! It’s a great way to still indulge and get a buzz without the lingering next-day effects we dislike from drinking alcohol. Plus, the body high that comes from these mocktails is unmatched.
If you’re not looking to get very high, you can add just a small dropper of cannabis tincture. Or you can opt for CBD tinctures which will provide a relaxing effect without the high.
Rose-red love potion
Whether you’re trying to swoon a special someone or just impress your cat, you can’t go wrong with this vibrant red love potion mocktail. Not only does it look enticing and taste delicious, but it also packs a powerful punch. Our recipe is adapted from this GayGlobeTrotter recipe which uses vodka rather than cannabis.
Here’s what you need for ONE drink:
- 3 oz cranberry juice
- 2 oz grapefruit juice
- 1 oz orange juice
- Desired dose of cannabis tincture
- Splash of grenadine
- Sparkling water
- Strawberries cut into hearts for garnish
You can use any cannabis or CBD tincture you see fit. However, we think Verdure’s 1:1 CBD/THC Orange + Lemon tincture works well in this recipe. You can often find it at our Spokane dispensary, Seattle pot shop, or other Piece of Mind Cannabis locations.
How to make the love potion:
- Fill a cocktail shaker with ice.
- Add the grapefruit, cranberry, and orange juices, grenadine, and drops of cannabis tincture to the shaker.
- Tightly close the shaker and mix until all of the ingredients are thoroughly combined.
- Pour into a glass and top with a splash of sparkling water.
- Place strawberry hearts around the glass for garnish.
Enjoy! Feel free to add as little or as much tincture as you see fit.
Blended Pink CannaCoconut Drink
It may still be winter but a blended pink drink is the perfect way to celebrate a COVID Valentine’s Day. It’s gorgeous, sweet, and fun to make. Our recipe is adapted from the Pink Coconut Frost Cocktail by Spicy Southern Kitchen. With just a few twists, we’ve turned this boozy drink into a delectable cannabis beverage!
Here’s what you need to make FOUR cocktails:
- 2 cups of pink lemonade
- 3-4 tbsp of cream of coconut (use the cream, not coconut milk)
- 10-12 ice cubes
- Maraschino cherries
- Strawberries cut in heart shapes
- Cannabis or CBD tincture
How to make the pink coconut cannabis drink:
- Add all of the ingredients EXCEPT the maraschino cherries into a blender.
- Blend until nice and frothy.
- Top with maraschino cherries and heart-shaped strawberries.
Enjoy! It’s that easy. If you have any coconut flakes laying around, you can add them to the final drink as a garnish as well.
Infused Raspberry Romance
What’s more romantic than a vibrant and sweet raspberry drink? This mocktail is easy, fresh, and delicious. We’ve adapted it from Liquor.com’s Raspberry Collins recipe, swapping the gin for some cannabis tincture.
Here’s what you’ll need for ONE drink:
- 4-5 raspberries
- ¼ oz of simple syrup
- 1 oz lemon juice
- Sparkling water
- Cannabis tincture
- One mint sprig
Here’s how to make this romantic raspberry drink:
- Muddle 2-3 raspberries and simple syrup together in a glass.
- Pour the lemon juice over the muddled mixture.
- Add ice and top with club soda.
- Top with a mint sprig and remaining raspberries.
This is a super easy and satisfying drink. You can add more raspberries for flavor or even muddle mint with the raspberries for a refreshing twist.
Tinctures for Valentine’s cannabis mocktails
All of our mocktail recipes utilize the convenience of cannabis tinctures. Rather than make your own canna-milk, cannabutter, or other infused item, you can rely on a pre-made tincture to deliver a potent dose of cannabis or CBD. All of our dispensaries are stocked with amazing tinctures, including our Bellingham weed shop!
Making infused beverages and edibles has never been easier. All you have to do is drop your desired dose in and go.
We love how many options tinctures provide, too. You can use a CBD-only tincture for its non-intoxicating therapeutic effects if you just want a chill night in. Or you can use a blend of CBD and THC for a balanced and calm high. You can also add pure THC tincture to your mocktails which are sure to get you nice and elevated for Valentine’s day.
Plus, there are many different ratios and flavor options to choose from. Try a Green Revolution CBD 50:1 tincture with lots of CBD and a hint of THC for a mild, chill night in. Or use a Ceres 1:1 CBD and THC tincture for the best of both worlds. We recommend asking one of our budtenders at any of our Washington dispensary locations to help you find the best tincture for your mocktail.

A word of caution
Valentine’s Day is a wonderful time to get high and spend the night in with your sweetheart or even have a self-care infused spa night. But if you’re not familiar with using tinctures, approach with caution.
Make sure you know how many milligrams are in each dropper when you make your mocktail. Otherwise, a miscalculation could leave you too-high-to-function on the couch for the night.
If you aren’t sure how much you need to feel effects, start slow. Drink two enjoyable mocktails to reach your desired feeling, rather than one loaded mocktail that may or may not be too strong or weak.
Drinking mocktails made with tinctures is similar to eating cannabis edibles. If you have experience with edibles, you should have a good idea of what to expect with your cannabis mocktails. If you don’t have experience, start slow.
