The liquid marijuana cocktail is a very addicting drink. It is tropical and sweet and has an apple flavour, along with a beautiful green colour. The colour can brighten up any party. Remember that the drink itself does not have any real cannabis in it. However, that doesn’t mean you can’t add your own after you have made the base recipe. If you are having a marijuana-themed party, then this drink would go with it very well.
By increasing the number of ingredients proportionally, you can make it a bigger batch. You can add some sliced apples or limes to a punch bowl if you are going to make it for a party. No matter how you want to make it, this is a simple and fun cocktail recipe that will let you get the party started. It will be a favourite among your guests.
Making the Cocktail
The ingredients are fairly simple. You will need:
- 1 Part Apple Rum
- 1 Part Blue Curaçao
- 1 Part Coconut-Flavoured Rum
- 1 Part Apple Pucker
- 5 Parts Sweet and Sour Mix
- 5 Parts Pineapple Juice
To make it, you will just fill a glass about three-quarters of the way with ice. Then, pour all of the ingredients into your cocktail shaker. Shake it up to mix it together and then pour it into your glass.
Adding Cannabis to Your Cocktail
You can bring your party up to the next level by putting some cannabis in the drink. Remember that cannabis is fat-soluble. That means that it will bind to the fat molecules, making it easier for them to enter your system. So, you will first infuse a fatty product, such as coconut oil or butter.
You can alternatively use milk, but that will not work well in an alcoholic beverage. With coconut oil, you can add tropical and nutty flavours to the drink. Plus, some people even believe that coconut oil comes with some health advantages.
If you want some other edibles to go with your festive atmosphere, you can also add this oil to some edibles. Coconut oil is solid when it is at room temperature. You will use a simple ratio of one part cannabis to one part coconut oil.
Grind up the cannabis loosely, but do not make it into a powder. Place it in the oven at a low temperature for about half an hour to 45 minutes. This process is known as decarboxylating the weed, and it is important for activating the THC in the weed. That will ensure that you get the most potent product possible.
You will use the double boiler method to infuse the oil with the weed. Put your cannabis and oil into a steel bowl above a pot that has simmering water in it. Stay near the stove since you need to stir it every now and then for the next six to eight hours.
If you do not like the idea of standing next to the stove all day, you might want to use a slow cooker. You will just add your herb and oil to the slow cooker. Leave it on low and stir it every now and then. The good news is that you do not need to stir it quite as much as you would with the double boiler method.
It is important to prevent the mixture from overheating since that can scorch and ruin the flavour of the oil. Remember that for the best drinks, you need to watch the infusion carefully. Some people like to add some water to their mixture to prevent it from burning. Remember that water and oil do not mix, so once the coconut oil is cooled and becomes solid, you can simply drain off any remaining water.
After several hours, you should have an extremely potent oil that will help you get high. Strain the mixture through a cheesecloth over a strainer. That way, you and your friends will not be drinking any bits of leaves.
Making Cannabis Syrup
Sometimes, you might want to add something sweet to your drink, and that is the perfect time to add some cannabis. If you are having a party, you can serve this syrup next to the marijuana drink. That way, your guests can decide for themselves how much weed they want to have. To start, you will need:
- 3 Parts Filtered Water
- 3 Parts Fine Granulated Sugar
- A Few Grams of Vegetable Glycerin (Usually Found at Health Food Stores)
- Finely Ground or Chopped Cannabis
First, you will combine the sugar and water in a medium pot. Bring this mixture to a boil and stir it for a while until the sugar is dissolved well. Add your cannabis to the mixture and cover the pot for around 20 minutes.
While you want the mixture to become decarbed, you do not want to scorch it. To avoid this, you should make sure that it boils gently. Then, you can add your glycerin. Allow it to simmer for around five to six minutes. Take off the lid every now and then to stir it. Strain the mixture through a cheesecloth and strainer, as you did with the oil. Store it in a bottle or a jar to use in your cocktail.
When you have alcohol and cannabis together, the effects of both can be more intense. So, you will want to drink a cannabis-infused alcoholic beverage in moderation. When you serve it at a party, you might consider serving the drink and cannabis separately and ensuring that only adults are present. That way, people can choose just how much cannabis they will be having. Don’t forget to label everything, so no one gets high on accident.
The original liquid marijuana drink only had alcohol in it. But you can put a new twist on a classic recipe by adding cannabis to it. Remember to follow the above safety tips, so you have a fun party and avoid getting too high.
