Let’s start with the nitty gritty: the cannabis. You can add cannabis to this recipe in one of three ways:
1. Infuse your own vodka with cannabis
There are many different recipes out there on how to infuse your own vodka with cannabis so choosing one is more of a personal preference. One way is to combine the cannabis and vodka in a 1:3 ratio in an oven-safe container and place in the oven for 45 minutes at 350 degrees so that the cannabis can infuse the vodka under heat. You can strain the mixture with a cheesecloth or even make a homemade “tea bag” with the cheesecloth prior to infusion.
2. Add a tincture
Tinctures are alcohol-infused cannabis drops that are taken orally. These are perfect for cannabis cocktails since patients using tinctures already know their dose and can add a few droplets to their drink with ease. They also come flavored, so you can purchase one, having this cocktail in mind!
3. Use Hemp-infused spirits
Hemp-infused spirits are a good choice if you’re making this cocktail with friends that don’t have their medical marijuana card. These spirits give you the herby aroma of cannabis without any THC or CBD, so it is legal in all 50 states.
Grab your favorite martini glass, one large candy cane and the cranberry juice. Crush up the candy cane to fine pieces so it resembles a thick sugar. Dip the rim of your martini glass in the cranberry juice then dip it into the crushed candy cane to make a festive sugar coated rim. You can dip the glass in the cranberry juice by pouring the juice into a shallow container bigger than the rim of the glass.
Add the vodka, peppermint schnapps and a small splash of cranberry juice to a shaker with ice. Here is where you are adding your cannabis infused vodka or tincture as desired.
Shake well and add ingredients to the sugar coated glass.
Add a small candy cane hooked on the rim for the final touch!
