Kratom Drinks: The Full Guide on Products to Buy & Recipes to Try

Kratom’s popularity is thanks, in part, to its versatility. Capsule, powder, and edible forms are certainly popular, but drinks offer distinct advantages. Beyond being a discrete, easy, and convenient way to enjoy kratom, drinks made with liquid extracts may boast extra benefits.

So, what types of kratom drinks are out there? Can you make your own kratom beverages? Let the experts at Golden Monk answer your questions as you take a closer look at kratom drinks.

The Most Popular Kratom Drinks

As is the case with other forms of kratom, there are many types of kratom drinks in existence. Here are some of the most popular ways to enjoy kratom in liquid form.

Kratom Shots 

Liquid kratom extracts are a straightforward and popular way to take kratom. They are made from dried kratom leaves, but turned into a liquid during the extraction process. In addition to the standard liquid extracts, some kratom companies (such as MIT45) also sell liquid shots or other liquid forms of kratom intended to be added to your favorite beverage.

You trust Golden Monk to provide high-quality, lab-tested kratom. However, you might not know that Golden Monk also has a sister brand: MIT45. MIT45 maintains the same high standards utilized by Golden Monk. 

Kratom drinks rank among some of MIT45’s most popular products, and for a good reason. Since kratom extract is more concentrated than most powders and capsules, these drinks hit you more quickly and fully than raw leaf kratom. 

MIT45 liquid kratom collection

MIT45 carries several best-selling liquid kratom extracts, including:

  • MIT45 Boost: Kratom extract blended with caffeine for a strong energy boost.
  • MIT45 GO: A mouth-watering blend of honey, cinnamon, and orange combined with our potent kratom extract.
  • MIT45 Super K: Contains 500 milligrams of mitragynine per serving.
  • MIT45 Gold: Over 35 million bottles sold – MIT45’s #1 best-selling kratom extract.
  • MIT45 Super K Extra Strong: Made with 1,200 milligrams of broad-spectrum extract.
  • MIT45 UltraMIT: Dial in your ideal amount of kratom using the ultra-concentrated UltraMIT.

MIT45’s great-tasting kratom extracts can be enjoyed on their own, or blended into almost any other beverage, if that’s what you prefer. Blending kratom with another beverage can help to mute kratom’s taste.

Cost: $6.97- $26.97

Kratom Seltzers

If you prefer carbonated beverages, several companies offer kratom seltzer. These drinks combine kratom, carbonated water, and natural or artificial flavors. The main aspect of kratom seltzers that people enjoy is how they taste. They come in many mouth-watering flavors, such as lemon tea, berry, watermelon, strawberry, and more. 

These kratom seltzers are often sold in 4-packs as a minimum quantity. White Rabbit Energy is one popular example, though you can also find select vendors like Burmans Health Shop that sell individual cans. These seltzers may feel like a good deal compared to pure kratom shots, but they often contain comparatively little kratom, whereas a strong kratom shot can be used to spike several drinks before it runs out.

Cost: $6.00 to $11.99 per can

Kratom-Infused Energy Drinks

Along with kratom, the popularity of energy drinks has surged in recent years. Experts expect the annual revenue of the global energy and sport drink market to reach over $233 billion by 2027, which is part of the reason you may have noticed new brands bursting onto the scene in the last decade. 

Of particular interest to consumers are more naturally energizing options, meaning drinks made from products cultivated from nature and less lab-created, artificial additives. Kratom drinks are a great, natural alternative for people wanting to ditch the high sugar content of most energy drinks. 

Cost: $5 to $25 per bottle

Kratom Teas

Kratom tea may be one of the most traditional kratom beverages, since kratom leaves were historically brewed. In its powdered form, kratom is easy to blend with flavorful teas, or you can also make this delicious drink at home! Learn more by checking out our article on making vs buying kratom tea or get started right away by shopping our assortment of kratom powders.

Here, too, if you’re buying pre-made kratom tea, it’s critical to understand how much kratom is in the bottle or can. Evergreen Tree, for example, sells a small 8oz bottle of kratom tea for $25, but it’s packed full of kratom that translates to 2-6 servings for most users.

Cost: $10.67 to $25.00 per bottled kratom tea. 

Pro Tip: The less expensive option in the long run is to brew kratom tea at home from  kratom powder.
