The summer has arrived, and so have the fruity drinks. What about a fruity summer drink infused with delta-8-THC gummies? Game changer, I know.
With MOONWLKR’s Delta-8 gummies, there are no creative limitations.
MOONWLKR Blue Hawaii
After consuming the gummies as directed, I decided to go a bit further and try the tasty, euphoric gummies in a mocktail.
Inspired by a well-known Blue Curacao, or Blue Hawaii drink, I went all in and derived a whole new mocktail that will give consumers the ultimate sugar rush.
This mocktail may soothe the body and create a bit of a euphoric feeling, either by eating the soaked gummies or simply drinking the mocktail with the extracts of the delta-8-THC soaked in.
Mimicking the taste of a blue ice pop flavor, this new MOONWLKR Delta-8 Blue Hawaii is bound to blow anyone’s taste buds away.
Four Simple Ingredients
Going to my local Walgreens, I stumbled upon two of the four ingredients — club soda and Starburst Blue Raspberry drink mix. For a total of $1.99, plus a bit of pineapple juice that I already had at home, all that was left was to add the tasty gummies.
As far as measurements, I took free rein, making sure each flavor popped.
First, I got a couple of ice cubes, as I like my drinks to be chilled. Then I added the club soda, filling about half the glass. Next, I added the Starbursts drink mix.
After I poured the powder into the drink, I thoroughly stirred everything until the particles of the flavor mix disappeared. But I felt like it needed a bit more flavor, besides the blue raspberry, so I took a small can of pineapple juice and sprinkled in as much as I desired.
And last but not least, I topped the mocktail off with two MOONWLKR’s Delta-8 gummies, which immediately began to absorb the flavors of the mocktail.
First Impression of the Mocktail
In complete honesty, I would make this drink again. It was a bit too sweet for me, but next time — I’ll start with using half of the drink mix and measuring the ingredients more precisely.
As far as MOONWLKR’s part in this mocktail, the gummies not only added more fruity flavor, and complimented the drink well, but after letting them sit for 10 minutes, the delta-8-THC from the gummies soaked into the drink.
The taste of delta-8-THC was very faint. But the occasional hints of cannabis added a nice kick to the mocktail.
Delta-8’s Role in the Drink
Like any product, it’s good to know exactly what goes into it, and all of MOONWLKR’s products are lab tested and carefully crafted.
In the Blue Dream Berry Delta-8 gummies, there is exactly 625 mg in an entire container. Adding two into the dreamy blue mocktail comes out to a total of 50 mg of delta-8-THC per drink.
Overall, the drink didn’t cause much of a high. Instead, I felt it created a relaxing, enjoyable, and slightly euphoric feeling. Although, it is worth noting that everyone’s tolerances are different; therefore, consumers should find what dosage works for them.
Because MOONWLKR’s gummies come in so many flavors, they can make killer mocktails in any flavor. With MOONWLKR there are no limits, and consumers are encouraged to push boundaries in hemp.
