Celebrating National Cocktail Day with a Cannabis-Infused Twist


National Cocktail Day is the perfect occasion to experiment with blending the classic art of mixology with the modern allure of cannabis. This year, let's take a creative leap from our last gin and tonic recipe and dive into another timeless classic, offering it a cannabis-infused makeover. Presenting the Cannabis-Infused Mojito, a refreshing and aromatic twist on the traditional cocktail that promises to elevate your celebrations.


Cannabis-Infused Mojito Recipe

Ingredients:

- 10 fresh mint leaves, plus a sprig for garnish

- 1/2 lime, cut into 4 wedges

- 2 tablespoons simple syrup, or to taste

- Ice cubes

- 2 ounces white rum

- 2-4 drops of THC tincture

- Club soda, to top off

- Optional: lime wheel for garnish


Instructions:

1. Place mint leaves and 1 lime wedge into a sturdy glass. Use a muddler to crush the mint and lime, releasing the mint oils and lime juice.

2. Add two more lime wedges and the simple syrup, and muddle again to release the lime juice. Do not strain the mixture.

3. Fill the glass almost to the top with ice. Pour the white rum and cannabis-infused simple syrup over the ice.

4. Top the glass off with club soda. Stir, taste, and if desired, add more simple syrup.

5. Garnish with the remaining lime wedge and a sprig of mint (and a lime wheel, if using).


Perfect for sipping on a warm spring day, it combines the refreshing zest of a classic mojito with the unique, mellow undertones that only cannabis can provide. Whether you're celebrating National Cocktail Day or just looking for a new way to enjoy cannabis, this cocktail is sure to impress.


Happy National Cocktail Day! Here's to celebrating the classics while embracing the new wave of cannabis-infused mixology. Cheers!
