Pineapple Spirit-Free Afro Caribbean Cocktail Mixer

10mg THC/4 oz serving, 30mg THC/pkg

Shoki creates a uniquely diverse product that’s fully ready for your glass on its own, but also makes the perfect mixer for a handcrafted cocktail or mocktail. We fell in love with the pineapple version, thanks to its healthy presence of ginger and lime, which come together to create a sweet, tart and spicy profile! Shoki very well might be the best-tasting alcohol replacement option we’ve come across to date!

Cann with Airfield Cannabis
Passion Peach Mate

5mg THC/12oz can

drinkcann.com | @drinkcann 

In rock ‘n’ roll, this collab would be called a supergroup. Beverage powerhouse Cann teamed up with Airfield Supply Co., Sweet Flower, and pop artist Tove Lo for this peachy little number powered by THC, plus a dose of yerba mate-sourced caffeine. If you’re the type who prefers mate over coffee or other sources of imbibable energy, or if you simply love what Cann puts out, you’ll want to pick up a four-pack of this from Sweet Flower in SoCal or Airfield Supply Co. in San Jose, which are the only retailers carrying the collab.

Artet & Aster Farms
Cannabis-Infused Aperitif

artet.com | @drinkartet 

Frequenters of high-end cocktail bars, you have found a new jam. This boutique sipper from Artet – infused using live resin of Frosted Zin x 3 Bears OG from the always amazing Aster Farms – is lushly laden with notes of pine, herbs, and menthol bolstered by a spicy bite on the finish. We could see this working beautifully in a seasonal cocktail, or as a perfect alcohol replacement for those who love the rigor of sipping an Amaro after a long shift. 

Albert Einstone’s 

10mg THC/serving , 20mg THC/1oz package

alberteinstones.com | @alberteinstones

Albert Einstone’s first got our attention with their El Blunto – a high-end hash-infused cannagar that you certainly need to try if you haven’t had the pleasure. On the lighter, more playful side comes their Stoneade line of beverage shots. These little tubes of sweet and tart goodness come in multiple flavors, including classic lemonade and watermelon lemonade. They’re bound to fill you with nostalgia for childhood antics on hot summer days. Perfect for a lemonade stand, if not for the prohibitive licensing fees. Mix it with soda or take the shot straight from the tube – either way, it’ll bring you the infused refreshment you’re looking for. 

Drink Mix Stir Stix

5mg THC/serving, 25mg THC/package

getmyhi.com | @getmyhi

One California Leaf staffer referred to these as “drinkable pixie stix,” and that pretty much nails the vibe of this stand-out product from MyHi. Each pouch contains five long, slender tubes filled with sweetened, Cannabis and caffeine-infused powder that dissipates when added to liquid. It’s a no-frills, convenient way to add a boost to any drink, offering people a choice to either pour the powder out of the end, or peel off a sticker and simply stir your drink with the stick, slowly infusing the liquid.
