We’ve all tried Sex on the Beach sometime or the other. It’s delicious, and true to its name, it’s great fun and one of the best cocktails you can have. And when you’re in the mood for something new, there are a whole lot of other combinations you can try in order to appease your taste buds. And, not to forget, enjoy the bliss that follows.
Be it at your best buddy’s party or on a romantic date, we’ve all sipped seductively at vodka based cocktails initially and gulped it down later, for we just couldn’t have enough of it. And now, vodka drinks just got better! Or should we just say that vodka can be ten times more fun if you could fix yourself an easy-to-make cannabis infused vodka.
Here’s the super-easy recipe for cannabis infused vodka —
- ½ cup hemp seeds
- 2 ounce vodka
- ½ ounce peach schnapps
- ¾ ounce orange juice
- ¾ ounce cranberry juice
- potato chips for garnishing
Kitchen tools required:
- A glass jar with lid
- A muddler
- A strainer
- A funnel
- A glass to serve
- A toothpick for garnish
Let’s start by crushing the hemp seeds. Put all the hemp seeds in the glass jar and add about ¼ ounce of vodka to it. You need to muddle the seeds for about a minute or so. Make sure you put enough pressure to break down the seeds.
Add more vodka to the mix, about ¾ ounce, and shake the contents nicely.
Let the mixture sit for several days. A week would be the ideal duration for the mix to get the perfect concentration. Make sure you shake the contents periodically, at least once every day. This step is important to make sure the vodka is infused with all the flavour from the seeds. You can notice the concentration change every day.
After a week, your cannabis infused vodka should be all set.
Strain the seeds using a strainer and a funnel. You can then transfer the drink to a bottle and use it to make the cocktail of your choice.
To make the perfect cannabis infused vodka drink you’ll need a nice, big glass and some ice cubes to start with. Pour 1 ¼ ounce of hemp infused vodka in the glass. Add ½ ounce of peach schnapps to it. Top it with ¾ ounce of orange juice followed by the same amount of cranberry juice. Your drink is all set.
You can get creative with the garnishing part. A slice of lemon or a nice, red cherry will work fine. Potato chips or wafers will make for excellent garnishing options too. Spear 2-3 potato wafers with a toothpick. Use the toothpick to bridge the rim of the glass and suspend it above the drink. Your drink is ready to serve.
The cannabis infused vodka is a treat to the eyes and easy on the palate. It’s smooth and fine and is worth every dime!
