With Spring in full swing, Cinco de Mayo and Mother’s Day are approaching and warmer days call for cocktails under the sun. With an increasing number of consumers going ‘Cali sober’ and ‘cannamoms’ coming out of the ‘green closet,’ why not celebrate with a refreshing THC-infused cocktail that will bring the buzz without the booze?
MXXN (pronounced ‘moon’), founded by spirits industry veteran Darnell Smith, the brand has created the spirit industry’s 1:1 non-alcoholic replacements designed to create the tasty THC cocktails.
MXXN’s Jalisco Agave is the go-to substitute to traditional tequila, with notes of sweet agave, oaky vanilla, and hints of flint and salt, and the London Dry is refreshing with floral aromas, citrus, juniper, and cucumber, making it a perfect alternative for your favorite gin drinks.
Below are a few of two favorite recipes using the London Dry and Jalisco Agave variants: the MXXN Margarita and the Mom Collins. The best part is, these spirits have no next-day turbulence!
