1 year after launching the first award-winning Black-owned Afro-Caribbean cannabis beverages in California, SHOKi Beverages Corporation announces immediate nationwide availability to pre-order uninfused versions of their popular and award-winning non-alcoholic cannabis cocktail mixers known as “SHOKiFree“. Mixology enthusiasts and cocktail lovers all around the country can enjoy SHOKi’s same amazing flavors that include global ingredients like ginger, hibiscus, spices, and tropical fruits for their most creative recipes.
“As pioneers in the cannabis beverage space, we are excited to further celebrate and amplify the West Indian and African heritage and culinary influences that raised us. The aromatic and gorgeous ingredients from our grandmother’s cabinets deserve more than to be restricted to ‘ethnic’ food aisles and exploited exoticism. Our-better-for-you portfolio of non-alcoholic cocktail mixers and cannabis beverages provide an elevation you can control and reimagine in every way that brings you enjoyment. We celebrate the diaspora and are unapologetic about reshaping the lens on cannabis consumption, alcohol-free cocktails, and the failed U.S. war-on-drugs that disproportionately impacted and disenfranchised communities of color. We’re building bridges among our cultures through food and beverage and making sure we give back to our communities through education and supporting non-profit anti-recidivism and community-building programs,” says co-founders, New York-based Tiffany Yarde and Ghana-based George Yehouessi.
