  • Reed’s Extra Ginger Ale
  • Lime-ade
  • Fresh Mint
  • Lime wedges

To make your Major Moscow Mules:

  4. Mix thoroughly and top with ice.

 

Pot Toddy  (8.3 mg THC per 8 oz drink)
Refreshing and reparative, this simple concoction is good the night of the party…but it’s even better the morning after. 

Ingredients:

  • Ray’s Huckleberry Lemonade 25mg (3 services per bottle)

How to do it:

  1. Take your lemonade out of the fridge to bring it to room temperature.

  3. Turn your heat to Med Low and let this mixture simmer while covered for 30 mins or longer for a stronger flavor.  (or microwave for 2 mins on high, if you’re a savage)
  4. Once you’re happy with the flavor, remove from heat.  Add 2 tblsp of Blackberry jam.  If you did not add a vanilla bean at the beginning, add a tsp of vanilla extract now. 
  5. Strain your cider
  6. In your favorite mug, add 4oz of hot cider and 4oz of Ray’s Huckleberry Lemonade.  Finish with a lemon wedge.
