4 Cannabis Infused Holiday Cocktails

Winter is here and everything around us is changing. The snow is falling, city streets are decorated with festive assortments, and shopping malls are playing Christmas music. I don’t know about you, but one of my favourite ways to wind down during a snowy night is to relax with a glass of something to keep me warm. This brings me to cannabis and alcohol. Cannabis has been known to have many different effects when mixed with alcohol. CBD specifically, mixed into a drink can have benefits like: less of a hangover, enhanced flavours, and less anxiety. With that being said, here are some of our favourite cannabis-infused holiday cocktails to enjoy this season.

Canna-Cane Cocktail

This concoction has a special place in my heart. It’s a fun and festive way to loosen up and spread some holiday cheer with those around you. Originally found in Grasscity Magazine, this cocktail is sure to turn some heads.

  • 2 ounces of cannabis-infused vodka
  • 1 ounce of peppermint schnapps
  • cranberry juice
  • candy canes (crushed, garnish)

Take 2 ounces of cannabis vodka, 1 ounce of peppermint schnapps and add cranberry juice to taste. Shake the mixture well with ice and pour the final product into a martini glass. This drink is best topped with a candy cane, which will add a bit of festive fun to your drink while adding subtle flavor as you sip.

White Christmas Mojito

Have you ever smelled or tasted something that brings you back to a place you’ve been long ago? Sipping this Christmas creation brings me to the warm and breezy tropical beaches down south due to its flavorful coconut taste. This clever craft is giving me all kinds of good vibes with its rich pomegranate garnish and sweet smell of mint leaves. With a few adjustments to the original recipe from Half Baked Harvest (like infusing cannabis into the rum), this recipe really has us wanting more than one glass.

  • juice of 1 lime
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 2 tablespoons cannabis-infused white rum
  • 1 tablespoon coconut rum
  • 1/4 cup canned coconut milk
  • sparkling water for topping
  • pomegranate arils and mint leaves (garnish)

In a glass, muddle the lime juice, sugar and mint leaves until the leaves have broken down. Fill the glass half way with ice. In a blender, combine the cannabis-infused white rum, coconut rum, and coconut milk and pulse until smooth. Pour over the ice and stir to combine. Top with sparkling water, mint and pomegranate.

Gingerbread Canna-nog

 

Forget summer or autumn — I always say that Christmas is my favourite season of the year. What reminds me most of Christmas is the taste of cinnamon and the smell of gingerbread. Luckily, this drink has both and it has the warm potential to be the best spin-off of eggnog I’ve ever had the pleasure of trying. While it didn’t start out to be a notable cannabis-infused cocktail, by infusing the rum in this recipe by The Spruce Eats, you can have some really great flavours and effects, all in one glass!

  • 6 large egg yolks
  • 1/2 cup sugar (granulated)
  • 3 cups milk
  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • 1 teaspoon nutmeg (freshly grated)
  • 1 Pinch of salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon allspice
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1 Tablespoon dark molasses
  • 1/4 cup cannabis-infused rum

After you have separated the egg yolks from the whites, add the yolks into a medium sized bowl. Add in the sugar. Begin whisking until the mixture is a light yellow and looks creamy and smooth. This can also be done with a hand mixer or stand mixer.  

Place the cinnamon stick in the milk. Heat the milk on the stovetop in a large saucepan until just simmering. One cup of the milk can be replaced with heavy cream. This will create a thicker eggnog. Add the spices, vanilla, and molasses.

Carefully ladle a small amount of the hot milk mixture into the egg mixture, whisking constantly as the milk is poured over the eggs. This will temper the eggs so they do not scramble. Repeat 2-3 times.  

Add the egg mixture into the rest of the milk mixture on the stove. Bring the mixture to a simmer. Place a candy thermometer in the mixture and turn off the heat when it reaches 160 degrees.

Place in a large glass bowl and cover. Chill for at least four hours. Mix in the cannabis-infused rum when the mixture has chilled.

Cannabis Colada

The cold winter months are the best time to escape to warmer places if you’re like me and can’t stand the cold. The best way to do that without eating at your savings is to create a tasty illusion instead. This colada is sure to have you thinking of the sun while you brave the cold winter that’s ahead. The cinnamon and nutmeg add an unexpected festive twist on this tropical classic, and it’s become my new favourite go-to beverage! Grasscity Magazine has more great cannabis-infused recipes like this one to choose from, as well!

  • 1-2 oz. cannabis-infused vodka
  • ½ oz. coconut cream
  • 1 oz. milk
  • 1 egg
  • pineapple juice
  • a dash of cinnamon
  • a dash of nutmeg
  • coconut shavings (garnish)

Take 1-2 ounces of cannabis vodka and add it to a shaker with coconut cream, some pineapple juice, milk, an egg, and a dash of cinnamon and nutmeg. Top up the shaker with ice and shake well to ensure the egg is properly beaten into the mixture. Once poured into a glass, top the drink with coconut shavings and cinnamon. If you’re feeling tropical, garnish with a slice of fresh pineapple.

    Superb blog! Do you have any tips and hints for aspiring writers? I’m hoping to start my own site soon but I’m a little lost on everything. Would you advise starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for a paid option? There are so many choices out there that I’m completely overwhelmed .. Any tips? Cheers!
