Winter is here and with it comes an influx of social gatherings, festive nights, and dinner parties. Here are the five most popular hemp-infused nonalcoholic cocktails to enjoy for a calming and uplifting experience, without the adverse effects of alcohol.

Try them yourself or be a modern host and offer an inclusive menu to your holiday guests. No one should have to settle for seltzer and lime.

A cocktail by Camille Becerra for La Natural, inspired by her tropical roots.
