What Can I Expect When Consuming Cannabis Drinks?
When you consume Cannabis in the form of drinks, you’ll most likely feel the alcohol first, then an hour or more later, you’ll feel the effects of Cannabis.
Just be cautious for those who are beginners or novices, because using alcohol and cannabis together magnifies the effects. BIG time.
If you’re experienced with getting crossfaded (being high and drunk at the same time) then this should be a breeze of a buzz!
#1. Cannabis Egg Nog
I used to absolutely hate egg nog. I couldn’t even be near it – but over the years, I’ve played and adjusted ingredients, but with Cannabis? OMG – so yum.
Did you know? Medieval monks in Britain were known to drink “posset”, which was a warm ale punch with eggs and figs.
Over the years, this beverage has merged into the traditional and common-day egg nog. Who knew?!
Here’s the recipe, enjoy!
5 Egg yolks 1/2 cup Sugar 2 cups Whole milk 4 tbsp Cannabis Butter melted 1 1/2 cups Heavy Cream 1 1/2 tbsp Vanilla 5 Egg whites 2 tbsp Sugar 1 pinch Freshly grated nutmeg per cup 1 pinch Cinnamon per cup 1 ounce Rum per cup Spiced is nice, regular is good too.
With your electric mixer, beat the yolks. While the mixer is running, add the sugar in a stream. When the sugar has dissolved add the milk, cream, Cannabutter and vanilla. Mix until well blended. In a separate mixing bowl whip the egg whites until they reach soft peaks. Add the remaining sugar and beat until stiff. Then, hisk the egg whites in, and chill. Add your 1 ounce of rum per glass, and fresh nutmeg on top!
Next up on the list for 5 Cannabis Cocktails For The Holiday Season is something I’ve never tried until I started mixing it up.
It is SO good, and it’s served hot – so when the weather gets chilly, your vibe will be warm.
#2. Cannabis Hot Buttered Rum
Servings: 4 people
1/2 cup Cannabutter Room temp 1/2 cup Brown sugar 1/2 tsp ground ginger 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon 1/2 tsp ground nutmeg more if you like it 1/8 tsp Vanilla extract 6 ounces Rum dark rum is great, but you can use white rum too (Cuban dark is the best!) 3/4 cup Boiling water
Beat cannabutter, sugar, ginger, cinnamon, and nutmeg with an electric mixer on medium speed for about one minute. Combine 2 tablespoons of your newly spiced cannabutter mixture with 1.5 ounces of dark rum in each of 4 coffee mugs. Pour 3/4 cup boiling water in each mug and stir. Don't want water and want it straight up? You can warm up your mixture on the stovetop and forget the water.
On to the next delicious Cannabis-infused Holiday Drink!
One of my all-time fav’s for the holidays and well.. Wintertime in Canada in general? Hot Toddy’s. But today, I’m calling it “Pot Toddy”!
Made with Whiskey I’d suggest using Jamieson’s or Tennesse Whiskey. In Canada, we have Crown Royal, and they just launched a Maple Syrup infusion which tastes incredible!

Hot toddies, plain and simple, are a combination of spirits, honey, hot water and spices served warm.

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!
