Cannabis Lemonade – A Great Treat For The Summer
Canna-infused lemonade is one of the great rewards of a hot summer day! Even better? It is super easy to make. Try our recipe!
Ice cold, cannabis-infused lemonade is one of the great pleasures of the summer. Even better news? It is super easy to make. The easiest method is to simply add canna-tincture to taste to a cold glass of homemade lemonade.
But if you want to master the art of making cannabis syrup, you can also add this potent extract to any drink you want.
- 3 cups (0.675 litres) of filtered water
- 3 cups (0.675 litres) granulated sugar
- 2 tablespoons of vegetable glycerine (available at any health store)
- 2 grams cannabis (finely ground)
- 1 saucepan
- 1 jar/closed container (i.e. Mason jar)
- Strainer or cheesecloth
- Put the water and sugar in the saucepan. Bring to a boil, making sure the sugar is fully dissolved. Now, add the cannabis. This is a very important step. You are decarboxylating the cannabis. This means you are making the THC “active.”
- Maintain a steady, low boil. This is to make sure you do not damage the THC. Continue this process for about 20 minutes.
- Reduce the heat again to a low simmer. Add the glycerine. Let simmer for another 5-6 minutes, stirring occasionally.
- Remove from the heat and let cool for a few minutes.
- In the meantime, prepare your jar and strainer. The easiest way to do this is to stretch the cheesecloth over the jar opening. Place a rubber band around the cheesecloth to keep it in place. Now carefully and slowly pour the cannabis syrup through the cheesecloth. You should stop when the build-up of cannabis leaves gets too thick. Scrape the leaves back into the saucepan. Continue the process until you have squeezed all liquid from the leaves.
- Let this cool.
- Now add it to your favourite drinks.
REFRESHING SUMMER LEMONADE
- 6 cups (1.35 litres) cold water
- 2 cups (450 millilitres) lemon juice (or 8-10 lemons)
- 1 cup (225 grams) sugar
- 3 Teaspoons infused vegetable glycerine or tincture
- Pinch of salt (optional)
HOW TO MAKE
- The easy way to do this of course is just to use lemon juice that is already squeezed. If you extract the juice manually, it will taste better of course. Regardless of where the lemon juice comes from, add it to the water. Mix thoroughly.
- Some people actually prefer to use a syrup, rather than sugar. However, this is the stage where you add the sweet stuff. If you are diabetic, use a natural sweetener like Stevia instead. Also note, you should add sugar sparingly. Remember the canna-syrup is super sweet too.
- Then add the glycerine and if you prefer, a pinch of salt.
- Mix or blend again thoroughly.
Here is where you have options.
You can either add cannabis tincture to the whole mix or by glass. Regardless, once you add the canna-syrup, mix thoroughly.
