Cannabis Infused Cocktails to Help You Cool Down This Summer

When the sun is shining on your day off and you have your favorite shades on, there’s one thought that will assuredly pass through your mind: When can we day drink?

Basking in the sun, feeling too cool for a school of cucumbers — that’s the perfect time to lay back and sip on your favorite buzz-inducing drink. But, hey, it’s 2018 and there are about a bajillion options for a drink on a hot afternoon. So, we have to come up with some parameters for truly the best day-drinking-beat-the-heat cocktails, right? Here at Tarukino, we aren’t about too many rules and regulations but let’s not get dehydrated and wake up hungover, okay? Which means, if we make a cocktail with alcohol, a glass of water must be by our side. Otherwise, it’s all Pearl Mini, Vertus and Utopia Sparkling Water to keep that throbbing headache gone the next day.

Try one of these cannabis-infused cocktails to beat the heat when the sun is shining bright.  

Pearl Mini Delight (Difficulty Level 1): Sometimes we like to make things easy. So, here’s the easiest recipe in the world: Pick up a tiny bottle of 10 MG Pearl Mini and pour it in a glass of your favorite drink — whether that’s chocolate milk, cola, seltzer. Sip slowly and enjoy a THC buzz.

Grapefruit Utopia Lemonade Fizz (Difficulty Level 2): Pour half a bottle of 10 MG Grapefruit Utopia in a glass with ice. Fill the rest of the glass with lemonade. Add a sprig of mint to taste. Light, refreshing, and zippy!

Sweet Lime Utopia with Muddled Lime (Difficulty Level 3): Take your favorite glass, throw a few lime wedges at the bottom and gently crush (or, muddle) with a pestle. Fill glass with ice, add half an ounce of simple syrup. Fill the glass with 10 MG Lime Utopia. The simple and the lime wedges make the drink robust and pop on your tongue.

Cherry Utopia Gin Fizz with Champagne (Difficulty Level 4): Let’s get wild! Fill your glass with ice, add one-two ounces of your favorite gin. Fill the glass about 90-percent full with 10 MG Cherry Utopia. Then, the pièce de résistance: a topper (or, float) or champagne. All those bubbles! All those delicious flavors combined. But make sure to drink a glass of water for each. We’re watching you!
Vertus For All (Difficulty Level 5): Pick up a 100 MG, 750 ML bottle of Vertus, reminiscent of champagne but with cannabis. Pour a third of the bottle into a glass and put in your fridge for tomorrow. Fill the Vertus bottle with four ounces of vodka and top it off with some cranberry juice. Before imbibing, drink two glasses of water just to be safe. Then, find six friends you adore and pass around the bottle as you watch waves crash on the shore or your favorite movie projected on the side of your apartment building.
