Did you know you can turn any drink into a cannabis infusion?
Water-soluble cannabis drops are one of the most versatile and economical ways to deliver CBD and THC into your system.
They are perfect for making a show-stopper drink (or food dish) either for a gathering, or simply for treating yourself.
Here’s one of my favourite cannabis cocktails, the Mighty Caesar.
All Hail Caesar! A drink and a snack.
A bold, flavourful Caesar is an excellent choice for incorporating cannabis into a drink. This rendition of the classic cocktail may be a little more work, but it has the added benefit of coming with its own appetizer.
Here are some tips on how to make the drink:
Rim it — Coarse salt, celery salt, cracked pepper, garlic and onion powder, and paprika all work.
The base — A top-notch craft Caesar mix makes a big difference. Who wants to keep a half-full jug of Clamato juice sitting around anyway?
Classic splashes — Add a dash of Worcestershire sauce and a little Tabasco for oomph.
Some sour — Lime goes great, but a lemon will do in a pinch. Try to find ones in the store that really glow with colour. Cut into a generous wedge. Pickle juice is a great secret ingredient.
Eh Tu, Cannabis — We prefer using flavourless water-soluble cannabis drops, like Verse brand. Still, bitter ones can complement flavours.
Now top it with munchies!
Go for novelty — Grilled cheese is iconic; sliders are cute; bacon wrapped scallop is haute cuisine. The only limit is imagination.
Keep it small — Nobody wants a full-size hamburger soaking in their drink. Choose presentation over size.
Elevate it — If you’re really looking to show off for a dinner party, make an infused savoury treat to pair with it.
