Marijuana and alcohol go together like driving fast and rolling down the windows. And especially if you’ve ever made weed butter, infusing liquor with weed is relatively easy to do…as long as you don’t burn your house down. No, seriously—alcohol, and even alcohol fumes, are extremely flammable.
THC/Alcohol Tequila is made from over proof 100% blue agave tequila and some really great high grade cannabis. Combine together in a 30 day process that makes a great tincture that has a variety of uses. It can be taken as a sublingual, dropped or sprayed under the tongue, or placed in food/drink. If you have never tried tincture before, please proceed with caution and responsibility, as this contains a high concentration of THC and alcohol. Try 1 or 2 drops or sprays to start, until you know your tolerance. If the taste puts you off, add 1 or 2 drops or sprays to a half glass of water or your favorite soda to mask the taste. This can be stored at room temperature or the fridge, it has a long shelf life of about 1 year.THC/Alcohol Tequila
Marijuana and alcohol go together like driving fast and rolling down the windows. And especially if you’ve ever made weed butter, infusing liquor with weed is relatively easy to do…as long as you don’t burn your house down. No, seriously—alcohol, and even alcohol fumes, are extremely flammable. Before you even think of making weed-infused cocktails, you should know that you should NEVER infuse liquor over a gas burner or near any other open flame, under any circumstances. Work in a well-ventilated area and do NOT improvise. “Fiery drug death” is not how you want to go down. Use a bit of caution is what I’m saying.
How to Infuse Weed Into Liquor
After you’ve grinded your decarbed weed, it’s infusion time! While some experts recommend buying a whipped-cream maker charged by whip-its and using that to rapidly infuse the booze before you heat it, I’ve found that skipping that weird and expensive step doesn’t seem to make a difference…at least, the pot-infused booze I’ve created without it tasted great and worked on all levels.
Fill the bottom half of the double-boiler halfway with water and heat on the electric stove or hot plate until it starts to boil, at 212ºF. Then turn the heat to low. In the top half of the boiler, pour in the bottle of booze of your choice and add the ground-up, decarbed ganj. Stir and cover. If you have a good stove, you can usually leave it on “warm” or the lowest-possible heat setting and let the liquor gently infuse over the next couple of hours.
If you have a testy stove (like me), you’ll have to watch the alcohol carefully to make sure it doesn’t boil, which will start to happen around 170º. (Optimally, you want to keep the liquid in the top of the double boiler at around 150-160ºF.)
Pour the infused liquor through some cheesecloth stretched over a funnel and back into its bottle. An eighth of an ounce of weed often imparts more of a yellow tone than green, so you might want to add a drop or two of green food coloring for dramatic effect. (No one will ever know!)
