You love cannabis, and you love alcohol. Have you ever considered whipping them into a tasty cocktail? Why not? Cannabis cocktails combine two of the greatest things in the world, and they’re an excellent addition to any celebration. Plus, if you’ve been practicing, you’ll get to show off your incredible mixing skills. Here, we’ll provide you with a few recipes for some delicious infused cocktails.

What Exactly Are Cannabis Cocktails?

A cannabis cocktail is an alcoholic beverage that you infuse with cannabis. Technically an edible, these beverages provide you with a way to enjoy the benefits of cannabis without having to smoke or vape. As a cocktail, they’re also great for celebrating any occasion, whether it’s a birthday, a holiday, or 420.

You can infuse your cocktails with any strain you choose. If you’re not looking to get high, you can opt for a high CBD low THC strain. You’ll still get the buzz from the alcohol, but you don’t have to worry so much about the high typically associated with cannabis.

Cannabis Cocktail Recipes to Try

Now onto the fun part: the recipes! Below are some great infused cocktail recipes to try for your next big (or small) celebration.

Cannabis Whiskey

Cannabis whisky isn’t a cocktail, but it makes a great drink. Additionally, you can add it to a whole host of cocktails, including some of the recipes to follow.

What you’ll need:

  • 1 bottle of bourbon whiskey
  • 25 ounces of ground cannabis

Either pour the whiskey into a resealable container or pour just enough from the bottle to safely add your cannabis. Shake the bottle to combine everything and let it sit in a dark cabinet for at least 48 hours. Strain the ground cannabis and cap your infused liquor.

Green Derby

  • 1 ounce of infused bourbon

Add all of your ingredients to a shaker cup along with ice and mix well. Pour your drink into a tall glass and top with soda water. Add a slice of fresh grapefruit for garnish.

Mai High

Drink Responsibly

Enjoying a cannabis cocktail is a great way to celebrate any occasion. One thing to keep in mind, however, is to drink responsibly. Not only are you consuming alcohol, but you’re also consuming cannabis. In addition to knowing your tolerance levels, don’t drink too many infused cocktails back to back. You may end up consuming too much cannabis and too much alcohol. These cocktails are meant to be savored, so take your time and enjoy them.
