One thing that people have started doing is trying to mix alcohol with marijuana. The problem is a lot of people who have tried this ended up with some pretty unsatisfying results. It’s not the easiest thing to make in the world and in most cases, you end up losing a lot of flavors or ruining the weed.
However, we’re going to discuss how you can make marijuana flavored alcohol without losing any of the flavors or ruining some good weed.
WARNING: Before reading further or trying your own method, DO NOT under any circumstances bring liquor near a fire. Liquor is flammable and this is how accidents happen.
Decarb the Weed
The first thing you need to do is completely decarb your weed. To do this, you can simply just use a baking sheet and place your weed in the oven at 240 degrees Fahrenheit for about an hour. Some people say you can do it for 30 minutes but with alcohol, you’re going to want it to remain there for about an hour.
So, before you do anything else, you need to make sure the weed is heated (BEFORE) it comes into contact with any alcohol because you’re not going to be heating alcohol. The next part is, determining how much weed you want to put into your liquor.
Just how potent do you want the weed in your liquor to be? Obviously, the more you use the more potent it will be but some people recommend that you use a 1/8-ounce bag in a fifth bottle. A fifth bottle is simply another name for a 750ml bottle.
Grinding the Weed
Once it’s properly heated up, you need to take it out of the oven and properly grind it. You can do this with careful cutting hands and a cutting knife or you can use the best method which is inexpensive, just simply buy a grinder. There are hand-held grinders that are extremely cheap and effective.
Creating the Mixture
First, you’ll want to place a double-boiler onto the stove. You’ll want to set it to high and wait for that water to boil. The water should fill about half of the boiler. Once you notice that the water’s starting to boil, turn the heat down to low.
Then, once it’s on low and has cooled down a bit, add the liquor you’re going to be using in the top portion of your double-boiler and then add your ground up weed. Simply keep stirring while keeping the mixture covered.
This is the long part because it can take up to 3 hours to create that mixture that tastes just right without losing any flavoring. All you have to do then is simply take a cheesecloth, put the cheesecloth over a funnel and then slowly pour the new mixture back into the fifth bottle. You don’t HAVE to use cheesecloth but it’s recommended.
The Best Liquor to Use
This one will really depend on your tastes because there might be some liquor you enjoy drinking that other people don’t. Some people enjoy the taste of rumple mint drink and some people throw up when they try to drink it.
Some people like to drink some fancy marijuana-infused drinks and some people like to keep it simple. If you really want to keep it as simplistic as possible, then there’s a couple of really easy drinks to make that are inexpensive.
7&7 – This is simply Seagram’s 7 whiskey combined with 7-Up. However, much you prefer to use is up to you but some people like to use half the glass of 7-Up and half the glass with Seagram’s
Screwdriver – This is a popular easy drink to make because it goes down relatively smooth. It’s simply just orange juice that fills up about ¾ of the glass and then ¼ of the glass is your favorite vodka. Some people like putting Tito’s in there.
Beam & Coke – As the name suggests, this is literally just Jim Beam and Coca Cola. It’s an acquired taste and not everyone likes it. The dosage varies as some people like to do half Beam and half Coca Cola and some people find that to be too much.
If you’re willing to put in the time investment, mixing marijuana with any of these easy drinks can greatly enhance your experience and you’ll probably get a lot better of a buzz with them too.
The great thing about alcoholic mixtures is you can experiment with different ingredients and there are thousands of mixtures out there that you can try out, but we wanted to give you the easiest ones to try.
