THC and CBD Mocktails to Welcome Summer

With summer around the corner and the heat picking up in DC, who can resist a refreshing cocktail? We like to put a twist on classic summer drinks by cutting the alcohol entirely. Instead, we elevate our drinks with cannabis to make delicious THC and CBD mocktails that satisfy and don’t cause any regret the next day. 

Why mocktails?

There’s nothing wrong with enjoying a refreshing cocktail on a hot summer’s day. But there are plenty of reasons people may avoid doing this. Maybe they are avoiding alcohol for personal or medical reasons, or maybe they just don’t like the way it makes them feel the next day. 

Whatever the case, mocktails are the perfect solution. You can either get high sipping on a THC mocktail or just soothe your mind and body with a relaxing CBD mocktail. 

We will show you how to make cannabis cocktails (mocktails) because they are both easy to make and delicious. All you need to infuse your drinks is a cannabis tincture, whether that be one with THC, CBD, or a mix of the two. 

Marijuana Mai Tai recipe

What says summer better than a refreshing mai tai? This sweet and fruity drink is the perfect way to welcome summer. With our infused twist, you will find yourself coming back to this tasty recipe again and again. We adapted this recipe from this non-alcoholic mai tai recipe on Food.com

Here’s what you need to make one mai tai:

  • 3 ounces of orange juice
  • 1 ounce of lime juice, or juice from ½ of a lime
  • 1 tsp of fine sugar
  • 1 tablespoon of almond syrup
  • ½ ounce of grenadine
  • Desired dose of cannabis or CBD tincture
  • Crushed ice

To make, combine everything in a shaker filled halfway with ice. Shake well and strain into a glass filled with ice. Garnish sliced fruit if desired. Enjoy! 

Don’t know how much tincture to add? Start with a low dose if you aren’t sure how edibles affect your body. 

Marijuana Mojito recipe

Another classic delicious summer drink is the mojito. Fresh mint and lime work together to create a refreshing beverage that is perfect for a hot summer day. 

We adapted this easy-to-make recipe from this no-jito recipe on Food.com. 

Here’s what you need to make one marijuana mojito:

  • Handful of mint leaves
  • 3 ounces of lime juice 
  • 1 ½ ounce of sugar syrup 
  • 2 ounces of club soda 
  • Desired dose of cannabis or CBD tincture
  • Crushed ice

To make, fill a glass about one-third of the way with ice. Then, add mint leaves, lime juice, tincture drops, and sugar syrup. Mash the leaves lightly using a muddle stick or wooden spoon. Be careful to not tear the leaves. 

Add a little more ice to the cup and pour club soda over the mixture until the glass is full. Garnish with mint and enjoy!

Tips for making mocktails with tinctures 

Cannabis tinctures are extremely convenient and make it so easy to make mocktails with just a few drops. You don’t have to spend hours infusing ingredients to make potent, effective mocktails. You can just drop your desired dose and go!

Beware, though. If you’re new to the world of cannabis tinctures, take it slow. If you’re using solely CBD tinctures, you don’t have to worry about getting too high, since you won’t get high at all. Any mixture of THC and CBD, or THC itself, may get you high. Prepare accordingly.  

If you aren’t sure what the right dose is, start small. There’s nothing worse than getting way too high and feeling paranoid when you were supposed to relax and unwind. 

We hope these THC and CBD mocktails will help to elevate your summer, bringing wellness to the forefront!
