THC Mocktails for Dry January
If you’re looking for a fun new way to consume THC, you might want to try THC beverages. These give you the same kind of potent and long-lasting effects as edibles - just in the form of refreshing and delicious drinks. You can buy THC beverages at a dispensary but, if you want to get creative, you can also learn how to make THC mocktails.
THC mocktails are tasty, alcohol-free drinks infused with the effects of THC. Whether you’re looking for physical relief or mental relaxation, these drinks offer all of that and more. Plus, they’re easy to make at home by using THC flavor shots, cannabis tinctures, or even mixing THC-infused beverages with other ingredients.
Dry January is the perfect time to try some THC mocktails, especially as many people will be abstaining from alcohol in the new year. Here are some of the best THC mocktails for dry January.
Dank ‘N’ Stormy THC Mocktail
The “Dank ‘N’ Stormy” is the perfect THC mocktail for winter. A new take on the classic Dark ‘N’ Stormy, this drink combines apple cider and ginger to make for a classic wintery taste. You simply need to add some THC tincture to infuse it with the enjoyable effects of cannabis. You can also use THC-infused beverages as a mixer.
Start by combining a few ice cubes, 3 oz of ginger beer, 2 oz of apple cider, and 3 drops of Angostura bitters in a cocktail shaker. Next, squeeze half a lime to add lime juice. To infuse it with THC, add a few drops of THC tincture. Alternatively, you can add some Mad Lilly Spritzer Ginger Pear to add a fruity and gingery taste along with the effects of THC.
This drink is the perfect companion on a cool winter day, but you can also enjoy it at any time of the year. It’s perfect for those who enjoy spicy yet fruity drinks but everyone should try it at least once. You can adapt how much THC you use depending on how potent you want your mocktail to be.
THC Fauxgroni Mocktail
When it comes to tangy winter cocktails, a negroni is always a great choice. But while those partaking in dry January can’t enjoy the classic alcoholic version, you can easily make a THC-infused Fauxgroni as an alternative. It’s just as refreshing as the real thing and comes with the relaxing effects of cannabis.
Add a couple of ice cubes, two shots of tonic water, three splashes of Angostura bitters, and an orange rind to a cocktail shaker. To infuse it with THC, mix a shot of cranberry juice with THC tincture and add it to the shaker. Alternatively, you could add a shot of Uncle Arnie’s Beverage Strawberry Kiwi to infuse it with THC while also adding some extra flavor.
Mix the ingredients thoroughly and pour the mixture into a glass. You now have an invigorating winter mocktail packed with the benefits of THC. The potency will depend on how much THC you use, so you can adapt the recipe depending on how strong you want the effects of your mocktail to be.
Virgin Strawberry Daiquiri THC Mocktail
When it comes to sweet, fruity cocktails, the Strawberry Daiquiri is a classic. This incredibly refreshing drink is known as a summer staple, but there’s no reason why you can’t enjoy it in January. While this drink is relaxing enough by itself, adding a little THC can make it even more relaxing.
You’ll need a blender to make this mocktail. Add 2 cups of frozen strawberries, ½ cup of fresh strawberries, ½ cup of lime juice, and ½ cup of maple syrup. Add a St Ides Strawberry Lemonade Shot to infuse it with THC and add some extra flavor. Alternatively, you can add 60ml of regular strawberry lemonade and top it off with some drops of THC tincture.
Blend your ingredients thoroughly until you end up with a smooth, fruity mixture. Pour it into a glass and garnish it with half a fresh strawberry. You can then enjoy the incredible taste and sensational effects of your fresh THC-infused Virgin Strawberry Daiquiri.
THC Mojito Mocktail
Another drink that’s great for conquering the winter blues is the mojito. The mix of lime and mint makes for a tantalizingly tasty beverage. Plus, adding THC instead of alcohol makes for a particularly soothing mocktail. It’s also an easy drink to make.
Add 3 mint leaves to a shaker and crush them into small pieces. Next, add ½ cup of ice, ½ cup of Club Soda or sparkling water, and 2 tablespoons of fresh lime juice. To infuse it with THC, you can add a St Ides Strawberry Lemonade Shot. Alternatively, add half a tablespoon of lemon simple syrup and as many drops of THC tincture as you need.
Stir the mixture and shake it thoroughly. You can then pour it into a glass. Garnish it with a few extra leaves of mint just to enhance the minty taste. Your delicious THC Mojito Mocktail is now ready to drink.
Mulled Wine THC Mocktail
Mulled Wine is one of the most well-known and beloved winter drinks. Even though the holidays are over, you can still use this delicious mocktail to cheer you up and warm you up during winter. Plus, removing the alcohol and adding a little THC can make it even more invigorating.
Mash a clove along with five fresh blueberries in a mug using a wooden spoon. Add some crushed ice, one teaspoon of agave syrup, and a sprinkle of cinnamon. Top the mixture with sparkling water while mixing thoroughly. You can then add as many drops of THC tincture to reach your desired dosage.
After thoroughly mixing the ingredients, you can heat your mulled wine mocktail in the microwave for a minute or so. You’ll then have a warm and refreshing THC mocktail. Although it doesn’t taste quite the same as wine, it offers a similarly wintery flavor along with the sensational effects of THC.
Dry January doesn’t need to be boring. These winter THC mocktails will warm you up while simultaneously delivering the sensational effects of THC. If you’d prefer to avoid psychoactive effects, you can also use CBD tinctures to enhance your mocktails.
