Here’s a recipe for a refreshing cannabis-infused drink:
- 1/2 cup fresh lime juice
- 1/4 cup cannabis-infused simple syrup
- 1/4 cup fresh mint leaves, plus extra for garnish
- 2 cups sparkling water
In a pitcher, combine the lime juice, cannabis-infused simple syrup, and fresh mint leaves.
Use a muddler or the back of a spoon to gently crush the mint leaves and release their flavor.
Add ice to the pitcher and stir well to combine.
Top with sparkling water and gently stir again.
Pour the cannabis-infused drink into glasses and garnish with extra fresh mint leaves.
Serve and enjoy!
To make the cannabis-infused simple syrup, you will need:
- 1 cup granulated sugar
- 1 cup water
- 1 gram of cannabis flower (or more, depending on desired potency)
Combine the sugar and water in a small saucepan and heat over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally, until the sugar has dissolved.
Add the cannabis flower to the saucepan and stir to combine.
Simmer the mixture over low heat for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Remove the saucepan from heat and let it cool.
Strain the mixture through a fine-mesh strainer or cheesecloth to remove the cannabis flower.
Store the cannabis-infused simple syrup in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.
