Simply Seltzer Mixed Berry Cannabis Mojito


With summer quickly approaching, there’s no better time to prepare a mouthwatering mojito. If you’re looking to skip the alcohol this season, you can still enjoy this delicious classic cocktail, but with an elevated twist. Introducing the Simply Seltzer Mixed Berry Cannabis Mojito, playfully infused with Gem + Jane’s Simply Seltzer and made with summer’s freshest berries, lime juice, agave nectar, and mint.


For those who love to craft drinks at home, you’re going to love Simply Seltzer. This beverage tastes just like traditional seltzer and does not impart any flavors into your cocktail so your other ingredients can shine on the palate. This low-dose beverage is also infused with several different phytocannabinoids, which enhances the drinking experience. One of the most unique cannabinoids included is THCV, a variation of THC that delivers a somewhat stimulating and uplifting buzz. Blended with Delta-9 THC and CBD, this mixer is a must-have and blends effortlessly into any recipe that calls for club soda or sparkling water.


While preparing the Simply Seltzer Mixed Berry Cannabis Mojito, I recommend adding ½ can of Simply Seltzer, which will fill your highball glass with liquid. Save the other ½ can for a second round or mix up a mojito for you and a friend. For the best flavor, be sure to head to your local grocery store or farmer’s market and pick up a selection of the season’s freshest berries. When muddled, these scrumptious fruits will release their juices for a boost of flavor as well as add a pop of bright colors.

Simply Seltzer Mixed Berry Cannabis Mojito


Yield: 1 drink


Target Dose: 2 mg THCV, < 1 mg Delta-9 THC, <1 mg CBD per drink (using ½ can)


Equipment:

Highball Glass

Bar spoon

Muddler


Ingredients:

1 ounce fresh-squeezed lime juice

½ ounce Agave nectar (use ¼ ounce if you prefer less sweet)

2 lime wedges

3 fresh blackberries

3 fresh raspberries

1 fresh large strawberry, cut into quarters

4 large fresh mint leaves

Cracked ice

Gem + Jane Simply Seltzer

Mint sprig, mixed berries, and edible flowers for garnish


Directions:

In a highball glass, add the lime juice and agave nectar. Using a bar spoon, vigorously stir the ingredients together until the agave fully dissolves into the lime juice. Add the lime wedges to the glass along with the blackberries, raspberries, and strawberries. Using a muddler, gently muddle the ingredients to release the juices. Next, add the mint leaves and gently muddle again (be careful not to tear the mint leaves or over muddle to avoid overly green flavors!). Fill the glass to the top with cracked ice. Top with Gem + Jane Simply Seltzer, then stir well with a bar spoon. Garnish with a mint sprig, berries, and edible flowers before serving.
