What is a THC-infused mocktail?

THC drinks, also called weed drinks or cannabis-infused beverages, are non-alcoholic drinks infused with small amounts of Delta 9 THC and cannabidiol (CBD). They are convenient, fun, and delicious. There’s nothing easier—and tastier—than mixing up a good old craft mocktail

Our low-dose cannabis drinks offer a safer, healthier alternative to alcohol. Small doses of THC provide light, uplifting effects perfect for sipping at parties, unwinding after work, or relieving pain and anxiety. The best part? No overwhelming side effects or hangovers you get from booze. 

If you’re new to microdosing, our Relax Plus gummies are a perfect intro to the mellow world of low-dose cannabis. Each gummy contains 25 mg of soothing CBD coupled with just 5 mg of THC for a mildly euphoric buzz. Let go of stress and anxiety with just one of these delicious gummies.

What is an alcohol-free cannabis margarita?

Our non-alcoholic cannabis margarita is a refreshing mocktail infused with just 2.2 mg of THC and 2.9 mg of CBD. This allows you to enjoy the bright, citrusy flavor of a traditional margarita without the alcohol overwhelm. We swap the tequila and orange liquor with our Buzz drops to boost the fun and eradicate the next-day headaches.

The virgin margarita base contains the tang of lime juice, the sweetness of orange liqueur, and salt on the rim just like the original. But these ingredients aren’t set in stone! Try grapefruit juice for a tangy twist, agave nectar to amplify sweetness, sparkling water to bring out the bubbles, jalapeño for a kick, or additional fruits such as mango or pineapple for a more tropical vibe.

Feel free to experiment and discover new ways to wow your palate, while indulging in a mellow, sweet buzz. 

If straight-up mocktails aren't your thing but you still crave the sweet tang of an exotic citrus drink, our Energy gummies are the perfect replacement. They contain only 2.5 milligrams of THC per gummy for a hint of euphoria and 5 milligrams of CBD for chilled vibes.

But keep reading to see how to make this irresistible cannabis margarita and we promise that booze-free mocktails will definitely become your thing.

Elevate your THC-infused margarita

Our cannabis-infused margarita is pretty perfect the way it is—but that doesn’t mean you can’t mix it up a bit. Take your margarita buzztail from phenomenal to ingenious with our tips and tricks.

  • Splash in the bubbles. You can swap club soda for sparkling water, ginger beer, tonic water, or anything else that adds delightful effervescence to your margarita. 
  • For a thicker, creamier treat, blend your margarita with a cup or two of ice cubes in a blender. The slushie-like texture goes down ultra smooth. Garnish with an extra wedge of lime or a fancy lime wheel.
  • Here’s a secret ingredient that will take this margarita to a whole new level: steep fresh herbs such as mint, basil, and rosemary—or spices like cinnamon, vanilla, or chili pepper—in simple syrup to add unique flavors. Strain out solids before you add them to your virgin margarita.
  • If you’re faithful to the classic drink, then you probably rim the glass with salt. That’s fine. But if you’re up for a tangy-hot twist, wet the rim and dip into chili powder, Tajin seasoning, or cayenne pepper for a kick of heat. The spiciness contrasts well with the tart flavors of lime and orange, making this a fun drink you can’t go wrong with.
  • Use fresh fruit purees or juices to turn your mocktail margarita into an explosion of textures. Blend mango, pineapple, strawberries, or blackberries into a puree and use instead of orange juice. Or swap lime juice for grapefruit, Meyer lemon, or other citrus.
  • Do you fancy turning this virgin margarita recipe into a creamy treat? A splash of canned coconut cream adds tropical, silky richness, perfect for hot summer days and chilly winter nights alike. 
  • The margarita isn't limited to just lime. Try combos like grapefruit, blood orange, lemon and lime. When possible, use fresh ingredients. 
  • Go wild with garnishes. Rosemary sprigs, basil leaves, mint, lavender or cannabis fan leaves make beautiful, aromatic garnishes.

There’s a reason our virgin cocktails taste so good: the secret ingredient infuses all of our tasty mocktails with only 2.2 mg of THC. Ditch the booze and go for a non-alcoholic option of the classic margarita or a timeless mojito mocktail with THC or the queen of mocktails, cannabis-infused Bloody Mary

THC drinks FAQ

A great substitute for tequila in a virgin margarita is non-alcoholic tequila, which is designed to mimic the flavor of its alcoholic counterpart without the alcohol content. This allows you to enjoy the traditional margarita taste without the intoxicating effects. Non-alcoholic tequila typically contains a blend of citrus flavors, agave syrup, and other ingredients that create an authentic tequila taste. 

We have something even better: our Buzz drops are non-alcoholic, organic, and contain low doses of THC and CBD that elevate your mood and relieve all the pain. With this substitution, you won’t even notice the booze is missing because the great vibes are staying. 

Order our THC drinks and enrich your favorite beverages in a matter of seconds.

The term “dirty margarita” is used when the traditional margarita recipe is modified to include olive brine. The addition of olive brine imparts a briny, salty flavor to the classic margarita, similar to the “dirty” variation of a martini. Those who enjoy the combination of savory and citrusy flavors in their cocktails will appreciate this twist on the traditional margarita recipe. 

The primary difference between a virgin margarita and a virgin daiquiri lies in the base spirits and flavors used. A virgin margarita replicates the classic margarita but without the tequila, replacing it with non-alcoholic tequila, cannabis mixers, or a mix of citrus juices and sweeteners. This yields a tangy and refreshing drink with a margarita's signature flavor profile.

On the other hand, a virgin daiquiri is based on the traditional daiquiri but omits the rum. It typically combines fresh fruit, often strawberries or lime, with lime juice and sweeteners, creating a fruity and sweet-tart beverage reminiscent of the classic daiquiri. 

It’s so simple to order a non-alcoholic version of the margarita when you're at a bar or restaurant. To make sure you receive an alcohol-free margarita, you can say something like, “I'd like an alcohol-free margarita, please.” 

To be extra certain the bartender gets the message, you could emphasize “NO ALCOHOL!” while drawing your hand sharply across your throat. Or not. Hey, you do you.

You can also specify any flavor preferences or customizations you'd like, such as whether you prefer it on the rocks or blended, and if you'd like any additional fruit flavors, like strawberry or mango.

A mojito and a margarita mocktail are two distinct non-alcoholic beverages with unique flavors and ingredients. In essence, a mojito mocktail leans towards herbal and minty notes, while a margarita mocktail focuses on zesty citrus and a hint of sweetness. 

While both are perfect for those looking to enjoy a non-alcoholic alternative, they differ in the following ways:

Base spirit:

  • A mojito mocktail is based on the classic mojito, typically made with muddled fresh mint leaves, lime juice, and simple syrup, all mixed with soda water. The primary flavor is minty and citrusy.
  • A margarita mocktail replicates the classic margarita, which is characterized by its tangy and slightly sweet profile. It includes ingredients like lime juice, sweetener (e.g., simple syrup or agave), and sometimes a salt rim.

Flavor profile:

  • A mojito mocktail offers a refreshing and herbal taste with the dominant flavors of fresh mint and lime.
  • A margarita mocktail has a more citrus-forward flavor with a balance of sweetness and tartness.

Ingredients:

  • A mojito mocktail features fresh mint leaves, lime juice, simple syrup, and soda water.
  • A margarita mocktail typically includes lime juice, sweetener, and, if desired, a salt rim.

The choice between the two depends on your flavor preferences and the type of refreshment you're in the mood for.

When it comes to ordering a fantastic mocktail, the world of non-alcoholic cannabis beverages offers a plethora of unique flavors. Whether you're abstaining from alcohol or just craving a refreshing, booze-free drink, THC-infused mocktails have you covered. 

Here are a few top mocktail choices for your next order.

  1. Cannabis-infused Pink lemonade: this mocktail offers the bright and refreshing taste of lemonade but with the added touch of our cannabis infusion. It's a unique option for those looking to enjoy the flavors of summer with an extra layer of complexity.
  2. Paloma mocktail with THC: the classic Paloma is known for its grapefruit and lime flavors and a shot of tequila. This mocktail comes with a THC infusion, turning this booze festivity into a delightful non-alcoholic option bursting with citrusy tang and THC euphoria.
  3. Blueberry thyme mocktail infused with THC: this mocktail combines the sweetness of blueberries with the earthy aroma of thyme, all with a THC infusion. 
  4. Non-alcoholic grapefruit sunset: this non-alcoholic beverage brings together the vibrant and slightly bitter notes of grapefruit, creating a refreshing and tangy drink perfect for sunset sipping. 
  5. Alcohol-free pumpkin cream THC drink: for a taste of fall, this mocktail offers the creamy and spiced flavor of pumpkin, with the added twist of our Buzz drops infusion
  6. Cucumber mint mocktail with THC: when you combine the cool and refreshing essence of cucumber with the invigorating flavor of mint, you get a rejuvenating alcohol-free choice. A splash of THC and CBD in it is just the cherry on top.

Consume your cannabis-infused mocktails responsibly and be aware of your tolerance. Moderation is key.
