Tropical Mai Tai Spritz

from Pamos

Hints of pineapple and citrus complemented snappy acidity and just a hint of hemp character.

For decades, Cannabis has served as the safest contender to replace the ritual of the cocktail. The infused beverage market pushes hard in that direction, with companies racing to create the most flavorful and widely accepted analogues to a day-ending drink. 

After sampling a few of their hemp-derived cocktail mixes, we have to say – Pamos deserves a spot in your sesh room fridge. 

The team at Pamos crafts a number of different lines catering to different tastes and levels of consumption, starting with the session-weight microdose canned cocktails (2mg THC/2mg CBD per can), ramping up to the medium-dose version with 5mg THC, and leveling up to a 10mg version in a 12oz can. The canned cocktails come in a trio of flavors including Tropical Mai Tai Spritz, Long Island Iced Tea and Peach & Guava Bellini Spritz. 

They also offer a pair of distilled non-alcoholic Cannabis spirits in 750ml bottles, in both a microdose (2mg THC) and low-dose (6mg THC) formulation, and have a growing library of canna-cocktail recipes on their website – where they also offer nationwide-shipping, since they’re a hemp-derived product line. Prices for the four-packs of canned cocktails range from $24 (2mg formulation) to $28 (10mg formulation), while the Pamos distilled spirits are $40 (microdose) and $45 (low-dose).

We filled a glass with ice and popped open a can of the Tropical Mai Tai Spritz, pouring the slightly fizzy, light orange elixir over the rocks, and garnishing with a slice of citrus. 

From the first sip, the experience was downright delightful. 

The glass chilled with infused tropical fruit effervescence, accented by just enough sweetness to stop short of being cloying. Hints of pineapple and citrus complemented snappy acidity and just a hint of hemp character. These would be a solid choice for a springtime soiree or a backyard barbecue. 

Regardless of whether you’re looking to replace the traditional cocktail, or simply want to elevate your mood with a delicious, cannabinoid-enhanced beverage, the Pamos canned cocktails won’t steer you wrong.
