beverages, non-alc #mixology, weed
Last week, I mixed a drink up for my wife that I remember as being surprisingly tasty and complex for a non-alcoholic drink. I say "I remember as" with some uncertainty, though, 'cause I was pretty high at the time. 🙃
It uses Seedlip non-alcoholic "spirits", which I discovered a year ago and have found pretty cool for booze-free mixing. Specifically, it uses their Grove 42 Citrus, which is made with three varieties of oranges, lemon, ginger, and lemongrass.

It also used Good Earth Sweet & Spicy chai, which tastes nothing like actual chai but does carry some nice notes of cinnamon and mango.
Anyway, I figured I'd share my rough recipe. I haven't tried this again since that night, so I don't know if the proportions are exact, or if it even tastes as good as I recall! I offer it in the spirit of adventure. 😜
beverages, non-alc mixology, recipe
- 2 oz Seedlip Grove 42 Citrus
- 4 oz fresh orange juice (canned *absolutely* won't work)
- 2 tsp homemade clove simple syrup
- 3 dashes Angostura Bitters
- 1 oz. Good Earth Sweet & Spicy (Mango Spice) tea, brewed strong for at least 10 minutes
Shake all ingredients with ice. Strain into an ice-filled tumbler and garnish with an orange slice.
A cool and chill place for cool and chill people.
