Mocktails to Ring in the New Year

Mocktails to Ring in the New Year

Take a deep breath, 2020 is nearly over, you made it, and with everything that has happened this year, it’s time to celebrate! We’ve got you covered with three cannabis-infused mocktail recipes that will keep you warm and help you ring in the New Year with style, even if that is from the comfort of home.

New Year’s Berry Bellini

This berry-licious take on the traditional Bellini takes the seasonal specialty drink up a notch. The original Italian-born cocktail was inspired by a Renaissance painting by Giovanni Bellini. This version is inspired by Dixie Elixir Sparkling Wild Berry Lemonade providing the spritz you love but without the wine. With the slightly citrus and berry fruity flavor and infusion of THC for a warm kick, this mocktail will invigorate you, and maybe even embolden you to dance.

Recipe makes 16 servings (6.25 mg THC per serving)

Ingredients:

1 bottle Dixie Blueberry Lemonade Elixir
1 cup frozen mixed berries, thawed
1/2 cup water
2 Tbsp sugar
3 bottles sparkling cider
Fresh blueberries for garnish

Directions:

  1. In a blender, blend thawed berries, water and sugar until smooth.
  2. Strain mixture through a thin wire sieve.
  3. Add 1 Tbsp pureed berry mixture to each champagne flute.
  4. Add 1 serving Dixie Blueberry Lemonade Elixir.
  5. Top with sparkling cider.
  6. Garnish with fresh blueberries.
  7. Toast in the new year!

Spiked Holiday Punch

Punch was invented in the 17th century as a beer alternative. So if you want a holiday drink other than the usual alcoholic beverages, this is the cheery zing you are looking for. It’s a party in your mouth with the guest of honor being Dixie Elixir Fruit Punch. This special concoction is sweet and tangy with orange, cherry, a hint of pineapple, plus a THC punch, and complemented with fresh garnishes. It may have you merrily dipping in the punch bowl for more.
