New Year's Eve usually calls for a cocktail, or at least Champagne. But what if you want to add weed to the mix? Here we offer four unique recipes for cannabis-infused cocktails that will have you looking forward to the year ahead. Whether you want a traditional cocktail or an alcohol-free mocktail, we've got you covered.

New Year’s Eve: love it or loathe it, odds are you’ll be drinking during it. And for the stoners among us, it goes without saying that the past year will be going up in smoke, as it were. But what if you want to mix the two? While there are some important considerations to make before simultaneously getting high and indulging in alcohol, it is indeed possible to fuse the two into one—thanks to cannabis cocktails! Below, we’ll provide four recipes for sensational cannabis cocktails and mocktails. That way, whether you choose to add alcohol to the party or not, you’ll enjoy a decadent beverage alongside your favourite strain.

What you should know about mixing cannabis and alcohol

So, which route should you go? If you like the idea of having some booze and some bud, know that less is definitely more. While the science surrounding the interaction between THC and alcohol is pretty slight, there’s reason to believe that alcohol can augment levels of THC in the blood. For this reason, it’s important to tread with caution. You don’t want to be the one blacking out at 8pm on December 31st because you got too crossfaded.

For example, if you know you’re a bit of a lightweight when it comes to drinking, or weed for that matter, perhaps stick to one drink, or use less alcohol or cannabis tincture in your beverage. Also, we highly recommend staying hydrated throughout the night. Alcohol dehydrates the body, and weed causes cotton mouth, so having some water or another hydrating beverage to hand is always a good idea.

Alcoholic option 1: Cannabis white Russian

Whether you’re a fan of The Big Lebowski or you simply love the flavour of this decadent drink, it doesn’t get much better than a cannabis white Russian! Creamy and smooth, it’s the perfect canna-cocktail to complement the holiday season.


  • 10ml cannabis tincture/oil
  • 45ml vodka
  • 45ml peppermint Kahlua
  • 60ml whole milk (or milk alternative)
  • Whipped cream (homemade or store bought)
  • Candy cane pieces


  1. Grab a cocktail glass (an old fashioned glass is traditional for a white Russian) and fill it halfway with ice.
  2. Add in the vodka, Kahlua, and cannabis oil. Top with milk or milk alternative, and stir well.
  3. Finish with a generous amount of whipped cream, followed by crushed pieces of candy cane.

Alcoholic option 2: Cannabis chocolate martini

Who doesn’t love chocolate? Add cannabis, vodka, and Kahlua to the party, and it’s bound to be a happy new year indeed. Note that, for this recipe, it’s recommended to use a cocktail shaker for the best results.


  • 10ml cannabis tincture/oil
  • 15ml vodka
  • 30ml dark chocolate liqueur
  • 30ml Kahlua
  • 22ml half-and-half or coconut cream
  • Chocolate syrup
  • Chocolate shavings (optional)


  1. Grab a martini glass and give the inside a nice drizzle with the chocolate syrup. Make a pretty design, or go more abstract.
  2. Add a cup of ice to your cocktail shaker, followed by the vodka, dark chocolate liqueur, Kahlua, and half-and-half. Give it a good shake, then pour the mixture into your martini glass.
  3. Add your cannabis tincture to the glass, and stir.
  4. Finish with chocolate shavings for a little panache.

Non-alcoholic option 1: Cannabis mimosa

Champagne is a classic NYE drink, but not everyone wants to experience the headache associated with over-imbibing. Luckily, this cannabis mimosa recipe contains no alcohol, but doesn’t sacrifice any of the fun!


  • 10ml cannabis tincture/oil
  • Orange juice
  • Ginger ale
  • Limeade
  • Orange slice


  1. Take a champagne flute and add in two parts orange juice, one part ginger ale, and one part limeade.
  2. Now, stir in your cannabis oil, and garnish with an orange slice. Easy as that!

Non-alcoholic option 2: Cannabis Caesar

Canadians have contributed a lot to this world, and perhaps one of their most esteemed offerings is the Caesar. This drink is definitely for fans of the savoury over the sweet, as it combines Worcestershire, Clamato, and vodka… only, in this recipe, we replace the vodka with cannabis oil.


  • 10ml cannabis tincture/oil
  • Celery salt
  • Lime juice
  • Hot sauce (Tabasco is recommended)
  • Worcestershire sauce
  • Clamato juice
  • Salt and pepper
  • Lemon wedge
  • Celery stick


  1. Grab a tall glass and dip the rim in lime juice, followed by celery salt.
  2. Now, fill the glass up about halfway with ice.
  3. Add a dash of hot sauce, Worcestershire sauce, your cannabis tincture, and salt and pepper. Give it all a good stir.
  4. Now, fill the rest of the glass with Clamato juice, and garnish with a lemon wedge and celery stick.

Final step: Enjoy your canna-infused drinks!
