Lion’s Mane Extract Cocktails

A good drink should be well-rounded and balanced. Adding Lion’s Mane mushroom extract is a great way to add a little more complexity.* Since life is all about balance, why not add a brain-supporting mushroom extract to your cocktail (which isn’t exactly brain fuel!)? Try pairing a drink with one of these tasty Lion’s Mane recipes!


The addition of Lion’s Mane mushroom extract adds subtle depth to the classic Manhattan. Try substituting Japanese or French whiskey instead of rye for another twist.

  • 2 oz rye whiskey
  • 1 oz sweet vermouth
  • 3 droppers Lion’s Mane tincture
  • Dash Angostura bitters
  • Orange peel, for garnish
  • Maraschino cherry, optional

Rub the orange peel around the rim of a glass to release the oils. Place the peel and cherry in the glass. In a cocktail shaker, combine whiskey, vermouth, tincture, and bitters with ice. Shake until chilled, then strain into the glass.


Foamy Lion

Shaking raw egg whites in a cocktail adds body and leaves a nice creamy head on the drink. To maximize safety, use a fresh egg from a happy chicken, wash your hands thoroughly, and clean the egg before cracking. The Foamy Lion tastes rich and creamy, which is an interesting texture for a cocktail!

  • 2oz vodka
  • ½ oz amaretto
  • ¼ oz maple syrup
  • 3 droppers Lion’s Mane tincture
  • Squeeze of lime juice
  • 1 egg white
  • Nutmeg, to garnish


Combine all ingredients, except for the nutmeg, in a cocktail shaker. Cap it dry (without ice), and shake for about 20 seconds to foam up the egg white. Open the shaker to add some ice, and then shake vigorously for another 20 seconds. Strain into a coupe glass. Grate nutmeg over the top to garnish.
