Dixie Elixirs has a low dose watermelon infused THC Soda that’s a perfect alternative to champagne! According to Health Ambition, some benefits of juicing this wonderfood can help your heart and skin by helping increase weightloss and manage cellulite. In celebration of summer, here are some watermelon inspired food & drink pairing ideas for your next summer soiree!
DIXIE: THE CHAMPAGNE OF CANNABIS
Dixie Elixirs is famous for their sparkling THC infused sodas ranging from 90mg sparkling Peach Iced Tea, Blueberry, Pomegranate, Wild Berry Lemonade & Old Fashioned Sarsaparilla to their low dose Dixie One 10mg Watermelon Cream soda. According to Lindsay Topping, Dixie’s Director of Marketing: “Dixie One’s are great- especially for guests who may be cautiously curious about cannabis. This allows them to try something delicious without the anxiety of dosing!”
According to Dixie’s website:
Whether you want to serve it straight up or mix it with some homemade watermelon juice, here are some ideas for presenting your sparkling elixir in style!
Mini Mason Jars
Mint, Lime, Mason Jar & Straw
Serve it like Champagne!
Add some mint leaves and berries for an added burst of flavor!
Some helpful tips from Lindsay:
- Do – Keep the original packaging on hand so people know exactly what they’re consuming.
- Don’t – Have Dixie One be the ONLY beverage served. Give people the option to have more un-infused goodies if their sweet tooth isn’t quite satisfied.
As for a sweet treat to eat…
Once you have the taste of watermelon in mind, serve up some non-infused snacks to let your guests get their taste without needing to drink more than they’re comfortable with!
Love & Marij suggests non-infused everyday farm grown watermelon; straight from mother nature, packed with vitamins & nutrients that not only aid in hydration, but promote healthy looking skin & hair so you can eat away and look great for your wedding day! (Research also suggests that consumption of watermelon can possibly aid in alleviating the following chronic symptoms: athsma, blood pressure, digestion, inflammation, muscle soreness)
NON-INFUSED watermelon snack ideas:
Savory Watermelon Salad
“This salad really transforms the watermelon into a savory dish that felt surprisingly hearty! Marinating the watermelon adds subtle hints of lemon, honey and balsamic to the freshness of the watermelon, and pairing it with the feta, mint, bacon and red onion makes it much more savory. Topping it all off with a drizzle of balsamic vinegar gives it a bit of needed acidity and a nice tang!” For the recipe, click here.
A melange (or melon-ge!) of your favorite fruits, this recipe combines kiwi, strawberries, bananas, grapes, blueberries and coconut shavings; all held together by some fruit jam. Change up the toppings or follow the original recipe here!
Feta, Mint & Watermelon Sticks
Watermelon, Mint, Feta & Balsamic. Simple, easy, tasty & savory! While the mint is great for aesthetics, a little bit goes a long way. We recommend doing a taste test before you serve! We also suggest adding a blackberry on top to round out the flavor, or substituting the feta for fresh mozzarella. Check out the original recipe here.
Avacado Watermelon Summer Salad
If it’s the creamy essence of Dixie’s Watermelon Cream soda you’re looking to chase, try some ripe avocado! One tasteful toothpick combining watermelon, feta and ripe avocado has the makings of the perfect chaser. Suggestions from the original chef here.
For any guest that prefers oven baked sweetness to celebrate your soiree, cupcakes and cannabis are copacetic companions! Check out the recipe here.
Cheers & remember to consume responsibly! :o)
