A Crash Course in Cannabis Cocktails

Get into the mind of a mixologist and whip up these completely alcohol-free canna-cocktails.

Craft cocktails the cannabis way

If you're like us, you're always looking for new ways to consume marijuana. Mixing booze and cannabis isn't always the best idea, but whipping up cannabis cocktails is fun. Marijuana tinctures are the missing ingredient on your bar cart. Lose the booze and sub in this cannabis-infused liquid for all the relaxation and fun of a cocktail combined with a fun, subtle, high.

Whether you're hosting a girls night, dinner party, or just want to relax on the couch and binge watch something, you deserve a beautiful beverage in a cute glass. Now imagine sipping without fear of a hangover, messy drunkenness, or poor sleep. Of course, you've heard of mocktails, but what about cannabis cocktails? Get into the mind of a mixologist and whip up these completely alcohol-free cannacocktails.

The key ingredient: Ritual Drops

Ritual Anytime Drops are easy to use, liquid tincture containing a one to one ratio of CBD and THC, combined with essential oils, Ylang Ylang, and cinnamon for a light, natural taste, and additional calming elements. Half a dropper of the tincture is all you need. Many people feel anxiety and stress relief and even help with pain similar to use of topicals. You won't feel drunk at all, but you will naturally feel elements of release and relaxation we often seek from alcohol. But with 5mg of THC per dose, you'll feel high.

We opted for the Ritual Anytime Drops for these recipes, but if you prefer a morning or high-free version, try Ritual Daytime Drops, which are CBD prominent and won't create a psychoactive high.

While these drops work on their own under your tongue, mixing them into cocktails is way more fun. If you're used to consuming alcohol in a dining or party setting, try swapping the booze for a marijuana cocktail to take the edge off in a new way.

These cannabis cocktails accomplish everything you're looking for in a boozy drink: taste, that "loosened up" feeling, and experience.

1 apple
1 lime

Paloma

The Margarita might be Mexico's most famous cocktail, but its cousin the Paloma is just as delicious. This tart, sparkling, fruit refresher is practically spa water once you ditch the tequila and sub in your Ritual Drops. This drink is more tart than sweet, and the sugar levels are easily adjusted based on your preference since all the other ingredients are no-sugar-added.

Ingredients:

Kosher salt for rim
1 grapefruit wedge for garnish
¼ cup fresh grapefruit juice
1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
1 teaspoon sugar
¼ cup club soda
½ dropper of Ritual Anytime Drops

It turns out you CAN have fun without alcohol. The morning after when you wake up happy and refreshed, you'll be thanking us.
