Toast 4/20 with a THC-infused cocktail

It is the highest holiday of marijuana use. You want to go out and have fun, so why not toast to 4/20 with a THC mocktail? Fridays and Saturdays are the busiest nights in bars and sometimes you want something other than a vape or a gummy – so why not drink a “cannabis mocktail”? This way you can pamper yourself with your friends, get a little sugar in your system, and relax.

Non-alcoholic cocktails – so-called mocktails – have been around since the 1860s as part of the temperance movement. The craft cocktail movement has fueled the cocktail renaissance, characterized by a revival and reprioritization of traditional recipes and methods in the bar industry. So why not do what you love and be part of the movement too?

The easiest way is to add a THC tincture to the mocktails while the staff isn't looking. Just stop by your local pharmacy and pick one up. Choose something with a mild flavor to match your order. If you're looking for a mocktail, think drinks with a strong flavor and a little more ice. Remember that it will take at least 15 to 30 minutes for the effects to take effect (like a real cocktail). So don't drink too quickly.

You can also make your own marijuana simple syrup. It's a little complicated, but it's still nothing too crazy if you like to be creative. You will need a combination of water, fine granulated sugar, vegetable glycerin, marijuana, a bottle or jar, and cheesecloth. If the marijuana is hand-baked beforehand to promote decarboxylation, something else can happen. There is a bit of trial and error depending on the strength of the plant used.

In 1971, 4/20 was born as a code word when five California high school students connected. They had a treasure map to help them find an abandoned cannabis crop. Since then, it has become a universal term for weed and the date is the biggest cannabis day of the year.
