In the summer time, when the weather is hot, the perfect beverage to sip on is none other than an ice cold cannabis infused lemonade.
It’s officially summer and most people are looking for their most refreshing drinks to quench their thirst. What better way to do that than some delicious ice cold cannabis infused lemonade?! This recipe for cannabis lemonade will keep you nice and stoney through out these warmer months. We use everclear for this recipe to extract the cannabinoids from the plant material. Most of the alcohol needs to be burned off in the extracting process, so you can extend the time slightly to make sure that you’ve burned off all of the alcohol.
What You’ll Need:
- Purified Water
- Raw Cane Sugar
- Everclear (Enough to cover the cannabis)
- Bowl Of Cannabis (Ground in a coffee grinder)
- 4 Lemons
Take a small pot and add in your cannabis and Everclear. Keep the heat on medium low, at a simmer but never at a boil. This heat will burn off a lot of the alcohol, hopefully allowing you to drink this lemonade without getting hammered. The alcohol is in the recipe in order to extract the THC from the cannabis. After you have brought the cannabis and alcohol up to the right temp, add in half of the glass of water. The mixture should cook until about half of it is evaporated.
Then, strain the mixture through cheese cloth to remove any leftover cannabis sediment. Be sure to squeeze the cheesecloth out to make sure that you get all of the trapped liquid. Then, you can add in the rest of the water, freshly squeezed lemon juice, and sugar as you see fit. Store this drink in the fridge! Enjoy!
