What is a Mocktail?

what_is_a_mocktail1.jpg

Mocktails are non-alcoholic cocktails. If you do not drink alcohol or are looking for more alcohol-free alternatives, then here are some mocktail recipes from a registered dietitian and cannabis educator. These recipes include cannabis infusions using various products from different dispensaries here in Florida. If you prefer a mocktail that is not infused with any cannabis, then skip this ingredient or replace it with an alternative (ex: replace Fluent’s agave nectar with regular agave or honey). Below you will find 7 tips for creating mocktail and 7 cannabis infused mocktail recipes. 

  • Opt for 100% juice that has no sugar added or squeeze your own juice with fresh fruit
  • Use fresh fruit (or frozen fruit without additional sugars or sauces) to muddle for a naturally sweet taste
  • Use sparkling water, either plain or flavored, in place of regular sodas
  • Kombucha is a great mocktail base, but try to choose kombucha with less added sugars – some sugar is required to feed the yeast and bacteria to support it’s growth in the kombucha making process
  • Use fresh herbs and spices for additional flavor
  • Start low and go slow with dosing the right amount of infusion, you can always add more
  • Replace any cannabis infusion product with your favorite dispensary’s drink mix/powder, these are my recommendations for best flavor, but you can customize as you need based on preferences
