Best Cannabis-Infused Hot Beverages
Brrr.. it’s so cold outside and it’s the perfect time of year to enjoy the very Best Cannabis-Infused Hot Beverages!
Whether you’re a coffee consumer or a tea drinker, I’ve got the bestest of the best recipes for you to try out and stay warm.
What I love about these hot drink options is that they are a quick, satisfying and dare I say seductive way to enjoy cannabis any time of day and year.
1. Cannabis-Infused Coffee
Who says coffee can’t cure-all?
They say that an apple a day keeps the doctor away but a cannabis coffee a day keeps depression away – for me that is.
Cannabis has been known to help increase and elevate mood, and help fight signs of
depression and anxiety.
A daily boost of wellness never hurts anyone, and having a nice hot and fresh cup of coffee will be your next favourite go-to.
2. DIY Cannabis-Infused Tea
If you ask me, I believe that the Queen knows what she’s doing so I’ll just follow suit when it comes to tea time, and I think it’s about ‘high’ time for a nice hot cup of cannabis tea, isn’t it?
Check out this recipe below, and pair it with a
biscuit that’s meant for dipping while you warm up from the inside out.
Servings: 1 person
Pot for the stove
Teapot and cups
4 cups water 1 gram cannabis 1 tbsp coconut oil 1 tsp sugar or honey depends on your liking
Boil water on the stove When it comes to a rolling boil, add in your weed. ( all of it) Turn the temperature down to a simmer, and let this steep for 15 minutes. Don't burn it, or you may lose the wonderful terpenes you're after. After about 15 minutes of low and slow steeping, strain the weed from the tea mixture. Keep the weed, and either put it in an empty teabag, or a tea-strainer that can handle fine pieces of loose leaves. Place your hot water in a teapot, along with your bag of weed-tea (or the loose leaf tea strainer) and steep for a fewminutes Gently pour into your cup, add your desired flavorings, and enjoy!
3. Weed & Whiskey Hot Toddy
Feeling a little chilly and want to warm up? Opt for a strong and satisfying hot toddy!
Many years ago (and probably still now) they used to use this as a cure for the common cold – and in today’s world, maybe it’s exactly what we need?
Why not enjoy this weed-infused hot beverage tonight?
Servings: 4 people
2 cups Hot Cider Liquid version 1/4 ounce Honey 1 pull/drop Cannabis Tincture Preferably Alcohol-based 1 stick Cinnamon Per Cup 1 wedge Lemon Per Cup
Heat 1 to 2 cups of hot liquid cider until boiling. Microwaving is fine too. Add 1/4 ounce honey and 1 pull/drop of tincture to the mix. Use 1 ounce of whiskey per cup and pour your mix on top and mix it with a spoon. Garnish with cinnamon stick, lemon wedge, and enjoy!
4. Nutella Cannabis Hot Cocoa
Ever had a Ferrero Rocher? That’s exactly what this drink tastes like, minus the little hazelnut in the middle.
This could single-handedly be my most favourite infused weed beverage of all time!
Servings: 24 people
Small Mixing Bowl
3 cups Milk 1/2 cup Cannabis Milk 6-8 tbsp Nutella Depends on your love of Nutella! 1 handful Marshmallows Garnish 1 Dollop Whipped cream Load it up! 1 bottle Chocolate Syrup to drizzle on top 1/2 cup Choped hazelnuts to sprinkle on top
In a medium saucepan, combine milk or a non-dairy alternative, cannamilk, and Nutella. Set the stove on medium heat and whisk vigorously until the liquid is steaming and hot but not boiling. Once it reaches this point, remove from the heat. Pour the hot cocoa in mugs and top the cups off with whipped cream, marshmallows, chocolate syrup drizzle and hazelnuts for an added garnish.
5. Cannabis-Infused Hot Apple Cider
Typically an autumn drink, I love drinking cider all year round but especially when it’s cold, dark and dreary in Canada.
You can experiment with the seasonings to get it to your liking, but when you follow the recipe below you can’t go wrong!
Servings: 10 people
Slow Cooker/Crock Pot
4 cups Apple Cider Your fav brand, ready made 4 sticks Cinnamon 1 Apple sliced thinly,seeds removed 1/8 cup brown sugar 1/4 tsp cloves 3 tbsp Cannabis Tincture
Pour the fresh apple cider into the slow cooker. Add the cinnamon sticks, apple slices and cloves in the cooker with the apple cider. Dump the remaining spices into the middle of a sheet of cheesecloth, use an elastic to envelop the spices so that they can't escape! Drop the cheesecloth spice bag into the slow cooker and set it to medium heat. Once the liquid reaches a boil you can mix the tincture and brown sugar together in a separate bowl, then add it to the mixture. Cook all the ingredients together in the slow cooker for one-two hours. Remove the cheesecloth spices package from the liquid and gently squeeze out the liquid before tossing it into the trash. Set the slow cooker to its lowest setting to keep the freshly made apple cider steaming hot and ready to enjoy for the rest of the day, and remember – the rule with weed edibles is low and slow, and wait 2 hours in between!
