10 Cannabis Cocktails You Can Make at Home

Dreaming of a tropical getaway? In the mood for a delightful adult beverage, but with a little weed-inspired twist? Cannabis cocktails are the key.

In states like Colorado where recreational weed is legal, you can order treats like cannabis-infused milkshakes and mixed drinks at cannabis bars and lounges. But if you’re at home and have the ingredients, it can be even more fun to make your own. Here are 10 incredible recipes to get you started.

Cannabis Cocktails: A Quick Introduction

These 10 cannabis cocktails—all of which can be made with cannabis simple syrup—will have you forgetting all your woes. You will feel like you have been whisked away somewhere sunny and warm in no time. They are also great to make during the holidays when you’re forced to deal with family madness and need to remain cool as a cucumber.

Any of these cocktails can also be made without alcohol. They can also be made without cannabis simple syrup if you’re in the mood for a virgin drink. We highly recommend getting creative and playing around with the ingredients.

However, it’s probably best not to add more than two ounces of cannabis simple syrup to any drink. That’s especially true if you’re new to edibles or not sure of your tolerance level.

You can also take just about any cocktail or mixed drink recipe that uses simple syrup and replace it with a cannabis-infused variation. Either way, if you’re going to make cannabis cocktails, you have to make cannabis simple syrup first.

Once you have cooked up a batch of cannabis simple syrup, you’re all set. Good cannabis syrup is the key to killer THC cocktails.
