What is a spicy jalapeño cucumber THC mocktail?

Our spicy jalapeño cucumber mocktail is a refreshing non-alcoholic beverage infused with small amounts of THC and CBD. It blends the fiery spice of jalapeño with the coolness of cucumber, creating a fusion that delights the senses and quenches thirst. 

What sets this sipper apart from others is the addition of our low-dose Buzz drops™. Only 2.5 mg of THC and 2.5 mg of cannabidiol (CBD) make sure you enjoy your beverage without the negative effects associated with excessive cannabis use. At this level, cannabis microdoses act therapeutically to relieve pain and anxiety, promote sleep and appetite, and bring on the fun. 

We replace all types of booze in our virgin buzztails™ because we’re not huge fans of hangovers and other alcohol-related side effects. Instead, we enrich our beverages with a touch of THC that provides a mild buzz without impairment. This makes our THC mocktails a perfect choice for everyone seeking a gentle relaxation experience.

With booze, it’s easy to lose track and overdo it, leaving you to face that dreaded hangover the next day. But with our carefully controlled, low-dose THC mocktails, you get smooth, mellow effects without nausea, headaches, or mental fog. 

Microdosing cannabis is beneficial for your brain. It helps you stay present, focused, and motivated. Whether you're unwinding after a long day or looking for a refreshing treat for social gatherings, this spicy mocktail offers an enticing option that is as delightful as it is beneficial.

How to make this cannabis beverage

This virgin jalapeño cucumber recipe is a keeper. You need only a few ingredients and even less time to treat your friends with a  jalapeño cucumber mocktail. 

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • 1 ounce of fresh lime juice
  • 4 cucumber slices
  • ½ ounce of jalapeño simple syrup
  • A full dropper of Buzz drops™ (2.5 mg of THC and 2.5 mg of CBD per full dropper)
  • Ice
  • Tajin

Instructions:

  1. Muddle fresh lime juice, slices of cucumber, and a generous pour of jalapeño syrup in a cocktail shaker. Muddle and stir until the cucumbers are broken down and incorporated. (This is an important step because you want the cucumber to release its juices and mingle with spicy jalapeño syrup.)
  2. Add a few drops of our Buzz Drops. Go with half a dropper if you’re new to microdosing cannabis
  3. Shake well until all ingredients are combined. 
  4. Prepare a clean cocktail glass by rimming it with jalapeño syrup and Tajin seasoning. (This step is optional but recommended.)
  5. Fill the glass with ice and pour the mixture. 
  6. Garnish your mocktail with thinly sliced cucumber, a lime wedge, or jalapeño slices (optional but why not).

It doesn’t get easier than this. Sip slowly, savor the refreshing blends, and let our liquid THC take you to a state of blissful relaxation.

Tips and tricks to elevate your mocktail

This recipe is not set in stone. You’re most welcome to experiment with flavors and ingredients until you find the one that delights your palate the most. 

Here are some ideas on how to elevate your regular spicy jalapeño cucumber buzztail™:

  • Substitute soda water with sparkling water or club soda to give your mocktail an effervescent lift.
  • Add a splash of orange juice to your mocktail. Orange will give it a citrusy twist that balances out the heat of the jalapeño. You can garnish your mocktail with an orange slice to add a burst of freshness and a pop of color.
  • Enhance the tropical vibe by incorporating pineapple juice into the mix.
  • Experiment with different levels of spiciness. Use fresh jalapeño slices in your muddling mixture to boost freshness and heat. You can also incorporate chili powder into the rimming mixture for an added punch.
  • Add a few mint sprigs to the mix. Mint provides a cool and invigorating undertone that complements the spicy jalapeño beautifully.
  • Infuse your mocktail with ginger beer for a spicy and aromatic undertone that adds depth to the flavor.
  • If you’re feeling bold, garnish your mocktail with slices of jalapeño (and drink it to your own peril).
  • Experiment with different glassware options such as rock glasses or champagne flutes to tailor the presentation to your preference and occasion. Serve your elevated mocktail in highball glass for a sleek and sophisticated presentation.
  • Coconut water is a welcome addition to this ensemble, adding to the tropical twist and imparting a creamy texture and a hint of sweetness that balances the spice.
  • Rim the glass with a mixture of chili salt and simple syrup to deepen the contrast of the mocktail.
  • For a healthier alternative, use fresh fruit juice instead of sugary syrups.

We are dedicated to creating fresh and ingenious mocktails to limit alcohol consumption and enrich our palates. Feel free to experiment with flavors and ingredients, just remember to go low and slow with our Buzz drops™, especially if you’re new to the cannabis-drinking game.

What are the benefits of drinking cannabis?

Whether you’re looking for a natural way to relieve pain, improve sleep quality, or simply want something tasty to boost your mood, cannabis beverages have diverse health benefits

  1. THC has been found to promote neurogenesis (the formation of new neurons), which may be beneficial for brain health and potentially offer neuroprotective effects against conditions like dementia. One study review suggests that “THC promotes hippocampal neurogenesis, prevents neurodegenerative processes occurring in animal models of Alzheimer's disease, protects from inflammation-induced cognitive damage, and restores memory and cognitive function in old mice.”
  2. Low-dose cannabis has potent anticancer effects. According to Preet, et. al., “THC was able to inhibit tumor growth and lung metastases in a murine model of lung cancer.” 
  3. Low THC can improve sleep quality. It promotes relaxation and reduces the time it takes to fall asleep (sleep latency). Research shows that THC may help maintain a regular sleep-wake cycle, which leads to restful nights.
  4. You know about the munchies, right? Well, THC is known to increase appetite, promote food cravings, and improve nutritional intake, making it beneficial for individuals with medical conditions or those who are undergoing treatments like chemotherapy. 

So go ahead and sip on your spicy mocktail without guilt. The right THC microdose in this tasty beverage offers bundles of science-backed benefits. A little mood boost, appetite stimulation, and neuroprotection—that’s just scratching the surface of what this compound can do. 

Order our THC gummies to experience the magic touch of microdosing cannabis, or infuse your drinks with our low-dose CBD and THC Buzz drops™. Whichever method you choose, you can’t go wrong.

How fast do THC-infused beverages kick in?

THC beverages are absorbed by your body, so they offer a faster onset of effects than edibles. They enter the bloodstream directly through the soft tissues in the mouth and throat, which typically means that you can feel the effects of cannabis-infused drinks after about 20 minutes

The cannabis compounds in our liquid cannabis drops are not fully digested like they are in our gummies, so THC drinks’ effects typically last between 2 and 6 hours. This means that only one fiery jalapeño cucumber buzztail™ will keep you feeling uplifted and pleasantly buzzed for hours.

Can cannabis drinks expire?

Cannabis drinks have an expiration date, similar to any other food items. The average shelf life of THC beverages depends on the ingredients: if they contain ingredients that can spoil, the beverage will have a shorter expiration date. Drinks without easily spoiled ingredients—such as our Buzz drops™—will last longer. 

If you properly store your bottle, your liquid THC courage can last you up to eight months. Even if it does expire, it may still be drinkable, just with less potency. When you store your cannabis edibles and drinks in warm, humid environments where they are exposed to direct sunlight, THC and CBD in the mixer are more likely to lose potency and effectiveness. 

Once you've opened a bottle of THC drinks, make sure to store it properly to avoid spoilage and prolong its shelf life. When in doubt about the quality, throw your THC mixer out and order fresh from nama

THC drinks FAQ

The options for alcohol-free cocktail recipes are endless. Whether you're looking for something bubbly, spicy, or fruity, there's a non-alcoholic option to suit every taste preference. 

  • One fantastic alternative to alcohol is using sparkling water or tonic water as a base. These carbonated beverages add a refreshing fizziness to your drink without any alcohol content. 
  • Another great option is ginger beer, which brings a unique spicy kick that complements a variety of flavors. 
  • You can also experiment with fruit juices like pineapple juice or cranberry-pomegranate juice to add depth and sweetness to your mocktails.

Our booze-free cannabis mocktails will help you curb those cravings for alcohol. Try the evergreen Tom Collins infused with THC, or the decadent THC-laced espresso martini. Our phenomenal rosemary pear mocktail with cannabis is a popular crowd-pleaser. 

All our recipes contain small amounts of THC and CBD extracted from the hemp plant. These microdoses bring out relaxation and relief without side effects.

It’s easier than you think to spice up your mocktail without booze. One simple way to add a kick is by incorporating 1-2 jalapeño slices into your drink. The heat from the jalapeno peppers infuses into the mocktail, providing a satisfying spicy flavor. 

You can also use ingredients like chili peppers or chili oil to add a fiery kick to your mocktail creations. These not only enhance the flavor but also add an exciting element of heat that elevates your drink to a whole new level of deliciousness.

The right glassware can truly elevate the presentation of your mocktails. For a classic and versatile option, consider using rock glasses. These short, sturdy glasses are perfect for serving mocktails on the rocks or drinks with muddled ingredients. If you're going for an elegant presentation, champagne glasses add a touch of sophistication to any mocktail affair. The tall, slender shape of champagne glasses showcases the colors and layers of your drink beautifully. 

Whichever glassware you choose, make sure it complements the style and vibe of your mocktail creation for a visually stunning experience that delights all the senses.

If you're looking for a refreshing alternative to traditional cocktails, mocktails are the way to go. Nowadays, mocktails offer all the flavor and flair of classic cocktails without the alcohol content. These alcohol-free drinks are perfect for anyone looking to enjoy a refreshing beverage without the buzz. 

CBD mocktails provide a unique twist by incorporating CBD drops for added wellness benefits. With a wide range of flavors and ingredients to choose from, you can craft a refreshing mocktail that suits your taste preferences and leaves you feeling revitalized and refreshed.

Presentation is key when it comes to crafting visually appealing mocktails. One easy way to elevate the look of your drink is by garnishing it with slices of lime or jalapeño pepper. Not only do these garnishes add a pop of color, but they also provide a hint of freshness and flavor to your mocktail. A splash of color with mint sprigs or edible flowers can make your drink stand out and look more inviting.

Another way to elevate your mocktail visually is to experiment with different glassware. Go for the classic and elegant highball glass, have fun with a martini or a champagne glass, and get creative with your glassware to create mocktails that are as beautiful as they are delicious.

If you're looking to sweeten your mocktail without adding sugar, there are plenty of delicious sugar-free flavors to choose from. One option is to use a blend of lemon and lime juice, which adds natural sweetness and acidity to your drink without any added sugar. You can also experiment with fruit juices like cranberry-pomegranate juice or pineapple juice, which offer a naturally sweet flavor profile. Another great option is to incorporate delicious sugar-free flavors, such as berry or citrus blends, to add depth and complexity to your mocktails. 

Balancing the flavors in your mocktail is key to creating a well-rounded and delicious drink. One simple way to achieve balance is by using a mixture of lemon juice, lime juice, and cranberry-pomegranate juice. The tartness of the lemon and lime juice is complemented by the sweetness of the cranberry-pomegranate juice, creating a cohesive flavor profile. A splash of tonic water or sparkling water adds a subtle fizziness that balances out the acidity of the citrus juices. Don't be afraid to experiment with different ratios of ingredients until you find the perfect balance of flavors for your mocktail masterpiece.
