Toast to the High Life

This holiday drink isn’t exactly a “cocktail”—there’s no alcohol in it. But it’s certainly not a “mocktail,” thanks to the elevating effects delivered by the THC. So let’s call it what it is: a delicious, festive beverage that pairs well with the holiday season.
The special, uplifting ingredient: cannabis-infused ZootDrops. ZootDrops come in two flavors/feelings, each delivering a different elevating experience. The lemon “Kick Back” relaxation drops combine THC with the soothing properties of chamomile and green tea extracts. The mandarin lime “Yippie Ki-yay” high-energy kind brings caffeine derived from green coffee bean extract into the mix of all-natural ingredients. Both versions are delicious additions to any beverage concoction—especially this special seasonal recipe created by the masterminds at Zoots just for Sensi readers.
Hot Spiced Cranberry Cider with ZootDrops
- 2 cups apple cider
- 1 cup cranberry juice
- 1 cinnamon stick
- 1/4 teaspoon whole cloves
- 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
- 2 slices of lemon
- 4 capfuls of Lemon or Mandarin Lime ZootDrops*
In a large pot, combine apple cider, cranberry juice, cinnamon stick, cloves, nutmeg, and lemon slices. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 15 minutes. Remove from heat, add ZootDrops, and stir. Serve hot. Garnish with a cinnamon stick and lemon slices, if desired.
* 1 capful of ZootDrops contains 5 mg THC. Adjust serving size as desired. However, if you are new to cannabis-infused edibles, Zoots recommends you start with no more than 5 mg THC. The edible rule of thumb: start low and go slow.
