Celebrate 4th of July With These Amazing Cannabis Cocktails

Today in the nation's favorite holiday—Independence Day. Whether you are going on a picnic with your friends to celebrate the Fourth of July outside and watch a parade, or you have decided to stay at home and watch the holiday's namesake movie, you definitely need a drink that can both be refreshing and provide you with a cheerful mood.

The following concoctions belong to the collection of the best cannabis-infused drinks that suit the holiday spirit perfectly.

Lemonade Haze

Ingredients:

  • 10 mg cannabis tincture
  • ½ oz lemon juice
  • 1 oz crème de mûre
  • ½ oz vodka
  • 3 oz lemonade
  • garnish (lemons or limes would be the best choice)

As with all other drinks, you need to start with filling a glass with ice cubes. Then, you just have to add all ingredients in the following layers: crème de mûre, vodka, tincture, lemonade, and top it with lemon juice. If you want to create a popular ombre look in your drink, stir the mix slightly. Garnish the drink with limes or any other fruit of your choice.

MJ Mash-Up

Ingredients:

  • 10 mg cannabis tincture
  • 1 teaspoon powdered sugar
  • 2 oz bourbon
  • 5 blueberries
  • 2 sliced strawberries
  • Angostura bitters
  • garnish

First of all, you need to take your cocktail shaker and muddle berries and sugar in it. Add some ice, bourbon, cannabis tincture from your favorite strain and shake it all together to create a perfect mix of alcohol and sweet berries. The work with the shaker is done.

Put some ice into your julep cup and pour the mixture over it. As our favorite holiday usually takes place on a hot summer day, top it with more crushed ice. The drink is not ready until you add the final ingredient—angostura bitters—and garnish it with some berries and mint.

Strawberry Shortcake

Ingredients:

  • 10 mg cannabis tincture
  • 2 teaspoons sugar
  • 1,5 oz strawberries
  • 1 oz half-and-half
  • 1,5 oz white rum
  • garnish

Put strawberries and sugar in a bowl. Leave the mass for ten minutes and then put it into a glass. Top the mixture with smashed ice. Then, add tincture and white rum. Gently stir the ingredients to give them a slightly-mixed texture. Top it all with cream and garnish. To decorate the glass, you may slice a strawberry and garnish the drink with it. Besides, a sprig of mint will complement the delicate scent of the drink perfectly.

The Lusty Wanderer

Ingredients:

  • 1,5 oz vodka
  • ½ oz simple syrup
  • 1 oz cannabis syrup with approximately 20 mg of THC
  • 1,5 oz lemon juice
  • 3 cucumber slices
  • soda water
  • garnish

Put cucumber slices into a shaker and muddle them. Then, pour vodka, lemon juice, simple syrup, and cannabis syrup into the shaker and thoroughly mix all ingredients with ice. Take a highball glass (or any other glass if you do not have a highball one), fill it half with ice, add soda water, and pour in the mixture from the shaker. The drink is ready. All you have to do now is garnish the Lusty Wanderer with more cucumber and lemon slices.

Zip It

Ingredients:

  • 2 oz bourbon
  • ½ oz ginger cannabis syrup with approximately 10 mg of THC
  • ½ oz honey syrup
  • ½ oz lemon juice
  • fresh peeled ginger
  • garnish

First of all, take your time to muddle ginger slices. Put all ingredients into a shaker and mix them with ice for the mixture to be thoroughly chilled. Chill your couple glass and pour the drink into it. You may choose your own favorite garnish for Zip It, but we recommend using a lemon twist—take a thin lemon peel, twist it over the glass to add some citrus oil into the drink, and rub the rim of the glass with the peel.

As you see, the variety of drinks that can refresh you on this holiday is impressive. In case you still have not found the one recipe you like the most, here is a collection of non-alcoholic drinks that will suit everyone:
