Are you a fan of cannabis? Well, you are not alone. Thousands of people enjoy cannabis in some form or another on a daily basis. Thousands more would but they do not have legal access to the drug. If you reside in a city, state, province, or territory with legalized cannabis laws, you can alternate your usage to avoid tolerance. One beverage gaining a lot of attention among the legal-age group is the liquid marijuana shot. A list of ingredients and directions is listed in the article below.
Spiced Rum by Captain Morgan is a versatile ingredient utilized in mixed drinks. Its popularity is due to its extra-spicy kick when mixed with other beverages is more subtle. To create a liquid marijuana shot, you need to start with a cocktail glass and 0.25 ounces of spiced rum, your choice of brand. Hopefully, you have a double jigger on hand because it will ensure more precise and easier measurements.
Coconut rum is another popular ingredient for mixed alcoholic beverages. The flavors, a mixture of rum and coconut, makes it a great addition to the liquid marijuana shot. Combine 0.25 ounces of coconut rum with spiced rum. You can stir now or wait until later when all the other ingredients are already added.
Blue Curacao, available in popular brands, such as DeKuyper, Mr. Stacks, Torani, and Finest Call, has a bitter citrus orange flavor with a blue tint. This is a popular mixed drink ingredient mainly because of its bluish coloring. However, some people prefer it for its citrus flavoring. When it comes to the liquid marijuana shot, the orange flavor mixes very well with spiced and coconut rums. Add 0.25 ounces of blue curacao to your mixture, stir now or wait till later.
A melon liqueur is an important ingredient of the liquid marijuana shot, as it is sweet and fruity. The most popular melon liqueur is Midori, a brand established in 1978. Midori melon liqueur is available almost everywhere, including France, Britain, Japan, and the United States. The recipe calls for 0.25 ounces of melon liqueur of any brand.
Pineapple juice has many health benefits. While it is a popular breakfast beverage, its delicious sweetness mixed with a little tartness makes it a great addition to the liquid marijuana shot. If you are not a fan of pineapple juice, you shouldn’t be concerned because it will be overpowered by the other ingredients. Measure out 0.25 ounces of the pineapple juice and add it to your concoction.
Lemon juice is utilized in all kinds of food and beverage recipes and homemade health remedies and cleaners. When consumed alone, the flavors can be quite a bit overwhelming. But, when mixed with other ingredients, it adds the perfect amount of saltiness and bitterness to wake up the taste buds. Fresh-squeezed is recommended but if you only have Realemon Lemon Juice on hand that will work as well. Add 0.25 ounces of lemon juice to your mixture.
Simple syrup is utilized in this case to add a bit of sweetness to the liquid marijuana shot. Without the simple syrup, the beverage maybe a little on the dull side for some people. You are only going to add 0.25 ounces of simple syrup, so it may make too much of a difference. But, you still should taste the sweetness of the syrup but it will not be overwhelming.
Prepare Your Shaker
Shakers come in all shapes, sizes, and designs. But, for mixed beverages, it is recommended to stick with stainless steel, which is durable, resistant to corrosion, and eye-appealing. If you desire to impress your friends, you will need a stainless steel shaker, speed spout, and double jigger, which are utilized in most commercial bars and pubs.
To prepare your shaker, you will need to add ice. It is recommended to add the ice prior to measuring the ingredients. This will give the ice enough time to chill the shaker before the ingredients are added. If you are only making one serving at a time, at least three ice cubes will do the trick. If you are making enough for multiple servings, you will need to add two- or three-times the ice. Just make sure the shaker is chilled before serving.
Mix For At Least Two Minutes
Once your ingredients are added and shaker is chilled, you will mix thoroughly. It is recommended to shake for up to two minutes before pouring. There is no set direction when it comes to shaking. But, most professional bartenders recommend holding the top and bottom of the shaker with both hands and shake vigorously. Some bartenders like to show off their shaking skills by placing the shaker over their right or left shoulder while shaking.
Strain The Concoction
Before you serve, you need to strain the ingredients. If your shaker has a built-in strainer, you will not need to do anything extra but if it does not, you will need what is called a “cocktail strainer”. There are two types of cocktail strainers on the market – the Julep and Hawthorne. If you need to utilize one of these strainers, it may be a good idea to strain the ingredients before adding them to your shaker. Every bartender has his/her own way of preparing mixed drinks, such as the liquid marijuana shot, so nothing is written in stone.
Utilizing the strainer, pour the beverage into a shot glass. The strainer will remove any clumps, such as pulp and seeds, from the mixture before serving.
Time To Enjoy
If you are serving liquid marijuana shots at home, it is a good idea to serve yourself last. Allow each of your guests enough time to test the beverage before you raise the glass to your lips. This is the etiquette of being a host.
The liquid marijuana shot can be served alone or followed by another alcoholic beverage, such as beer or ale. The mixture of flavors is very satisfying and what comes next will be guaranteed to make your world better.
