Yuzu Raspberry Rose Lemon Drop
Recipe By: Annie Trimber
You can never go wrong with a refreshing beverage on a warm day, and this Lemon Drop mocktail is no exception! Made with a homemade lemon simple syrup that’s both tart and sweet, fresh raspberries, and topped off with Gem + Jane Yuzu Raspberry Rose, this cannabis-infused mocktail just might become your summer go-to. This recipe makes 1 drink, which uses about half of the can of Gem + Jane, which means there is less than 2mg THCV, per serving.
The yuzu flavor of Gem + Jane accentuates the citrus notes in our Lemon Drop mocktail in perfect harmony, and we amp up the flavor even more with fresh raspberries. After you’ve made your simple syrup, you only need two other ingredients to prepare this easy and tasty drink! Plus, the recipe for the simple syrup makes more than one serving, so feel free to store it in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 1 month so you can have Yuzu Raspberry Rose Lemon Drops on deck all season.
