Try this cannabis twist on a classic cocktail. Made with orange juice, grenadine, and Ripple, this Colorado Sunrise Cannabis Mocktail is the perfect thing to reach for when you need to relax and unwind with a drink.
Nothing hits the spot quite like an ice-cold drink to help you relax after a long day. Whether you are looking for alternatives to alcohol or you simply prefer cannabis, this infused mocktail is exactly what you need.
Packed with 10mg THC and 10mg CBG per serving, the Colorado Sunrise Cannabis Mocktail will leave you feeling bright in your mind and easy in your body.
The original Colorado Sunrise is a variation of the popular Tequila Sunrise cocktail. It is usually made with a combination of vodka, orange juice, and grenadine syrup. This non-alcoholic version of the drink uses water-soluble cannabis powder to infuse it for an elevated experience.
You can use any drink mix cannabis product or even add your own personal twist to this cannabis mocktail recipe by finding a cannabis drink flavor of your choice to add to the original recipe.
No matter which cannabis product you use to infuse your mocktail, you are sure to enjoy this drink. The best part is it only takes five minutes to make!
How to Make the Best Cannabis Mocktail
The key to making a good cannabis mocktail is to use high-quality cannabis products that won’t interfere with the taste of the drink. That’s why our Roots Rx team loves Ripple for this Colorado Sunrise Cannabis Mocktail.
With Ripple Revive, you get 10 individually portioned packets for easy, on-the-go dosing. Each packet contains a combination of THC and CBG (cannabigerol) that works together to deliver fantastic benefits.
CBG is known to enhance pleasure and motivation, regulate appetite and sleep, and even alleviate pain. Unlike THC, CBG has no psychotropic effects, so it will not give you a high. Many people liken CBG to CBD as they share many of the same benefits.
At Roots Rx, we have all your favorite Ripple products in each of our Colorado dispensary locations. You can simply search “Ripple” on our online menu. We have the Ripple Revive, which we highly recommend for this Colorado Sunrise Cannabis Mocktail. Our team also stocks Ripple Sleep and QuickSticks in Berry Burst and Lemon Blast, among other pure dissolvable products.
Another important aspect of this Colorado Sunrise is the layering effect. To truly get that scenic sunset effect, you’ll want to pour your liquids slowly and carefully and serve this mocktail unmixed to preserve the color of each layer.
That’s why we recommend stirring your Ripple into your orange juice first before proceeding with the grenadine! However, if you’re not big into the presentation, add everything in at once and enjoy.
• 1 cup orange juice
• ¾ ounce grenadine
• 1 packet Ripple Revive
• peach slice, to garnish (optional)

- Fill a glass with ice.
- Add orange juice and Ripple, and stir to combine.
