5 Cannabis-Infused Mocktail Recipes

As the leaves begin to turn from bright green hues to warmer tones of red and orange, many Coloradans will be headed to the mountains to see the aspens signal the true arrival of fall.

If you’re a fan of all things autumn, this year you might want to add something new to your list of fall traditions. We recommend finding time to practice the Danish tradition of Hygge – a philosophy focused on enjoying the little things in life and finding or creating small moments of coziness in your daily routine.

Some Hygge essentials include warm lighting, cozy sweaters, hot meals with friends, and warm drinks enjoyed during cool weather. Hygge is all about creating a cozy atmosphere and enjoying the experience. What could be a better way to do that than snuggling up under a blanket with a warm drink as you enjoy the changing leaves?

This year, we’re taking our Hygge to the next level with cannabis-infused mocktails using cannabis tincture, chocolate edibles, and cannabutter to keep our bodies warm and our hearts full.

1. Glogg (a.k.a. Mulled Wine)

Traditionally a Christmas classic, Glogg is a Hygge essential. This mulled wine is a popular choice for Danes when enjoying the holiday season among friends. If you’re ready to kick off the holiday season a little bit early this year, then consider making your own batch of cannabis-infused Glogg—or test out our recipe and prepare to get cozy.

What you’ll need:

  • 2 bottles of non-alcoholic grape juice cocktail
  • 4-6 cinnamon sticks
  • 3-4 whole cloves
  • 2 handfuls of raisins
  • 1 orange, sliced thin
  • 1/2 to 1 full dropper of your favorite Tonic Drops tincture

How to Make Glogg:

  1. Combine all ingredients except tincture in a large pitcher and allow to sit overnight. This will allow the flavors to infuse into the wine as the carbonation dissipates.
  2. Pour Glogg into a saucepan and warm over medium heat until the Glogg reaches the desired drinking temperature.
  3. Strain out the cinnamon, cloves, raisins, and orange slices and pour into a mug.
  4. Add the desired amount of tincture based on your dosing preferences and enjoy!

2. Pumpkin Spice Latte

Fall brings with it an array of things to be excited about, and for many coffee drinkers, the return of the pumpkin spice latte at cafes around the Mile High City is one of those exciting things. For anyone looking for more ways to enjoy all things pumpkin spice, a cannabis-infused pumpkin spice latte might be just the thing. Next time you pick one up, you might consider bringing the latte home to add a bit of tincture. If you’re feeling more creative, try our recipe and make your very own!

What you’ll need:

  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 tablespoon pumpkin spice syrup
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

  • 1/2 to 1 full dropper of your favorite Tonic Drops tincture

How To Make a Pumpkin Spice Latte:

  2. Add the hot milk mixture and tincture to your coffee, and give it a swirl with a spoon.
  3. Garnish with whipped cream and pumpkin spice seasoning and enjoy!

3. Full Melt Hot Chocolate

Treat yourself to a warm hot chocolate drink for those cool fall or winter evenings around a cozy fire with friends. This homemade Full Melt Hot Chocolate is rich, creamy, and has an intense chocolate flavor to help you relax and be merry. If milk chocolate isn’t calling to you, try the Full Melt Blueberry Crunch bar. Makes two servings.

What you’ll need:

  • 2 cups whole milk
  • 3 oz chocolate chopped (approx. 2 Hershey chocolate bars)
  • 2 pieces of Full Melt Milk Chocolate (10mg THC each)
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract 
  • Whipped cream 
  • Marshmallows

How to Make Full Melt Hot Chocolate

  1. Put milk in a small saucepan and place on the stovetop over medium heat, do not let it boil.
  2. While the milk is heating place all the chocolate in the microwave and heat for 30 seconds. Take the chocolate out and stir it. Return to microwave and heat for another 30 seconds, remove and stir. Continue until just melted.
  3. When the milk reaches the scalding point (180 degrees F), turn off the heat and add the melted chocolate, whisking to combine. Add the vanilla extract.
  4. Pour into two mugs and top with whipped cream or marshmallows if desired and enjoy!

4. Hot Apple Cider

Perhaps the oldest fall drink is apple cider. Dating all the way back to 1300 B.C., the farmer’s market staple has a boozy history and is still a common beverage choice for flannel-wearing adults sitting by the fire. However, just because the classic beverage hasn’t changed much since its inception doesn’t mean that there isn’t room for an update.

What you’ll need:

  • 3 Cups apple cider
  • 2 Cinnamon sticks
  • 3 Whole cloves
  • 3 Teaspoons allspice
  • Pinch of freshly ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 to 1 full dropper of your favorite Tonic Drops tincture

How to Make Hot Apple Cider:

  1. Combine all ingredients in a saucepan and warm over medium heat for 5 to 10 minutes.
  2. Strain out the cinnamon and cloves, pour into your favorite mug and enjoy!

5. Cannabutter Brew

If you have ever watched or read Harry Potter movies and books then you know about butterbeer. It’s a beverage made popular by the characters who drink it in the stories. Butterbeer is basically cream soda that meets butterscotch flavor and butter with a whipped topping. This 21+ version uses Sweet Grass Cannabutter to help you enjoy your fun autumn activities. Makes two servings.

What you’ll need:

  • 1 cup (8 oz) club soda or cream soda
  • ½ cup (4 oz) butterscotch syrup (ice cream topping)
  • 1 tablespoon Sweet Grass Cannabutter
  • Heavy cream

How to Make Cannabutter Brew

  1. Let your cannabutter sit out until it is softened.
  2. Pour the butterscotch syrup into a bowl, add the softened cannabutter and combine.
  3. Pour the cream soda into the mixture and stir then set aside.
  4. In a separate mixing bowl, whip heavy whipping cream until it forms stiff peaks with a stand mixer but don’t overwhip.
  5. Pour the cream soda and butterscotch mixture into two clear mugs, top with a dollop or two of whipped cream and enjoy!
