What is a cannabis-infused mojito?

A cannabis-infused mojito is a brilliantly refreshing booze-free take on the classic Cuban mojito. This lively mocktail combines a bright, citrusy flavor with a microdose of cannabis.

A small amount of THC or CBD adds a layer of relaxation without making you feel sleepy or sluggish. The cool menthol from the fresh mint leaves completes the chill experience, giving your taste buds a pleasant tingle.

This craft mocktail ditches white rum and adds wholesome ingredients that elevate your experience. When you replace alcohol with the beneficial small amounts of cannabis, you get all of the feel-good vibes without the next-day headaches and grogginess.

How do you make a cannabis mojito mocktail?

Refreshing and euphoric, our cannabis mojito mocktail is perfect for when you want to chill out on a hot summer day or spice up your evening. 

Grab your cocktail shaker, and let's dive into the art of creating the queen of popular cocktails.

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • 5 mint leaves
  • 4 ounces sparkling water
  • 1 ounce fresh lime juice
  • ½ ounce agave nectar
  • Buzz drops (cannabis infusion)
  • Mint and lime to garnish
  • Ice

Time to mix this divine Cuban highball.

  1. Muddle fresh mint leaves and lime wedges in a glass.
  2. Fill the glass with ice. 
  3. Pour in lime juice, agave nectar, and sparkling water.
  4. Add Buzz Drops (one full dropper contains 2.2 mg of THC and 2.9 of CBD—we recommend starting with 1 dropper, though experienced cannabis users can increase the dosage).
  5. Stir gently with a wooden spoon to infuse. 
  6. Garnish with mint leaves and thinly sliced lime (optional).


Why you’ll love this recipe

As you can see, our buzzy take on the classic mojito contains no sugar or alcohol, just refreshing mint, tart lime, a touch of natural sweetener, and all the benefits of cannabis microdosing

We eliminate empty calories and nasty hangovers. The agave nectar adds just a hint of sweetness to balance the citrus without spiking your blood sugar. The mint and lime provide that familiar mojito flavor—in a more uplifting package. 

This refreshing beverage packs some serious therapeutic benefits not found in alcoholic beverages. Read more about the benefits of low-dose THC drinks and discover why they’re the smartest way to unwind and de-stress.

Because THC drinks are absorbed quicker than cannabis gummies and enter our bloodstream directly through the soft tissues in the mouth and throat, you’ll be able to feel the effects of weed drinks within 20 minutes

Though super fun and sociable, cannabis cocktails typically have a shorter duration of effects than edibles (though longer than vaping or smoking). If you want your sweet buzz to last a bit longer, you might want to pop in one of our delicious edible gummies. Delta 9 edibles can last up to eight hours, compared to beverages, the effects of which last between two and six hours. 

Try our Relax Plus gummies with only 5 milligrams of Delta 9 THC. The 25 milligrams of cannabidiol in these fruity bites complement and balance Delta 9 beautifully, so 5 milligrams of THC create a mellow buzz without the anxiety or fogginess that higher doses can cause. 

Whichever method of microdosing you choose—drinking or eating your cannabis—feel-good vibes are guaranteed.

Tips and tricks for success

Are you ready to embark on an exciting journey into the world of craft mocktails? We've got some stellar tips and tricks to ensure your cannabis mojito mocktail is an absolute hit. 

Whether you're an experienced cannabis enthusiast or just looking to casually explore the world of non-alcoholic cannabis beverages, elevate your mocktail game to the next level. 

  1. Choose fresh mint leaves for that unmistakable minty freshness.
  2. If you’re not into agave nectar, feel free to go back to basics and use white or brown sugar or any other sweetener of choice. 
  3. Use a regular glass, a fancy cocktail glass, or even a highball glass to serve your THC-infused mojito. A visually appealing presentation is always a nice touch.
  4. Instead of soda water, you can use any type of carbonated or sparkling water for that delightful fizz and effervescence. This bubbly element helps to dilute the zestiness of lime juice and the potency of your cannabis infusion.
  5. When muddling mint leaves and lime, gently bruise them to release their essential oils and flavors without turning them bitter. The back of a wooden spoon is the best for that if you don’t have a muddler on you.
  6. Always use plenty of ice in your shaker. This helps chill the mocktail quickly and gives it a crisp finish. 
  7. Finish your cannabis-infused mojito mocktail with a lime wheel, a sprig of mint, and perhaps a maraschino cherry for that extra touch of class.
  8. Feel free to get creative. Explore different cannabis tinctures, add complementary flavors like blackberry or strawberry syrup, or experiment with alternative sweeteners. Tailor your mocktail to your taste and discover your perfect cannabis-infused mojito.

With these tips and tricks, you're well on your way to crafting a sensational cannabis-infused mojito mocktail that'll leave your taste buds tingling and your spirit uplifted.

We are so over the damaging effects of alcohol. Hangovers, poor decision-making, increased risks of health issues… No, thank you.

THC drinks are revolutionizing social drinking by providing an uplifting, feel-good buzz without the havoc wreaked by alcohol. Even in small doses, cannabis relaxes you, elevates your mood, and enhances experiences without impairing cognition or motor skills. And you'll wake up refreshed and ready for the day, not hugging the toilet or laying out on the couch with a splitting headache.

  • With THC drinks you can chill out, not blackout. Relax and enjoy the moment while maintaining control over yourself and never worry about what embarrassing things you did the night before.
  • Cannabis boosts your wellness, ditching the illness. Can you say the same about booze? 
  • The microdose buzz improves your state of mind without impairing cognition or motor skills. You stay mentally sharp and physically coordinated.

THC drinks FAQ

Even if you lack a muddler, you can still enjoy the refreshing infusion of mint in your beverage. Mudde it with the back of a spoon or your fingertips. The goal is to gently bruise the mint leaves, releasing their aromatic oils and flavors without crushing them. 

Place the fresh mint leaves in the bottom of your glass, and then, with the back of a spoon or your fingers, press and twist lightly. You’ll extract the mint's essential elements which contribute to the signature essence of a perfect mojito mocktail. 

The classic vessel for serving a mojito is the highball glass. This tall, elegant glassware is designed to accommodate the mojito's key components, including ample ice, the invigorating mojito mix, and enticing garnishes like mint sprigs and lime wedges. 

Highball glasses provide not only practicality but also a visual delight, allowing you to appreciate the mojito's vibrant colors and enticing aroma. They are perfectly ergonomic for sipping your drink while keeping it cool and refreshing. 

Don’t feel bad if you don’t have a highball glass in your kitchen arsenal. You can use any other tall glass and still make a delicious and visually appealing mojito mocktail. 

For the quintessential mojito experience, opt for fresh spearmint leaves. Spearmint's invigorating, slightly sweet, and aromatic flavor profile complements the zesty lime and sweet simple syrup in a mojito. To capture the authentic mojito taste, aim for at least 5 to 10 fresh spearmint leaves per drink. Their aromatic oils and refreshing qualities will transport you to a tropical paradise with each sip. 

A “dirty” cocktail belongs to a category of drinks that incorporate brine from ingredients such as olives or pickle juice. This brine introduces a savory, salty twist to the cocktail, adding complexity and depth to its flavor profile. The term “dirty” is often associated with renowned cocktails like the Dirty Martini, where olive brine imparts a briny kick to the classic Martini. 

You can also find the Dirty Mary, a variant of the Bloody Mary, which includes pickle juice for a tangy, salty spin on the traditional recipe. These cocktails offer a unique and intriguing flavor experience, appealing to those who relish a savory dimension.

Mint extract can serve as a suitable alternative when you don’t have fresh mint. Mint extract is a concentrated source of mint flavor, so a mere drop or two suffices to achieve the desired minty essence. However, in order to prevent overpowering the drink, aim for a minimal quantity. It’s always better to go with a drop or two, taste, and adjust as needed than to ruin your cocktail.
