Now, this is another one of our essentials for cannabis infusions! Cannabis Syrup is added in a lot of cannabis recipes but would usually appear mostly on drinks and cocktails or as we call it Canna-cocktails! Yes, you heard it right! Infusing Cannabis is not only done on food as edibles but is also done and goes great on drinks, both alcoholic and non-alcoholic for that matter. So, just for now, let us give it a name and call these marijuana-infused drinks as “drinkables”!
Cocktail drinks and mixers are a standard on any party. It wouldn’t be a party if you did not have any refreshments to serve to your guests. So, what’s excellent about this Cannabis Syrups recipe is that once you have this made and stored in the fridge,just pull this out and add a dash on some on coke, beer or maybe if you feel like leveling it up, make some margaritas for that fancy feel and you and your guests will be well on your way in getting that invigorating and uplifted buzz and get the party started! Syrups are a standard on any bartender’s kit of ingredients! So, as far as your imagination can take you! The sky’s the limit on where you can use Cannabis Syrup!
