Find Out How To Make Your Own Cannabis-Infused Cocktails
Learn How to Create Your Own Type of Cannabis-Infused Cocktails with Warren Bobrow at 2019 Cannabis Drinks Expo.
Known in many bartending circles simply as the “Cocktail Whisperer,” Warren Bobrow has literally written the book on how to create new types of cannabis cocktails – everything from coffee and tea-based beverages to cooling lemonades and sparkling herbal infusions. In fact, his new book “Cannabis Cocktails, Mocktails and Tonics” illustrates more than 75 drinks that you can make with infused cannabis. As a result, thanks to the creativity of celebrated mixologists like Bobrow, bartenders have a new way to surprise and delight their patrons: the cannabis-infused cocktail.
At the upcoming 2019 Cannabis Drinks Expo in San Francisco, Bobrow will be demonstrating to audience members how to create their own cannabis-infused cocktails, focusing on one exotic creation inspired by Vietnamese street vendors. This iced cannabis drink features THC-infused condensed milk with sugarcane juice and coconut water ice. For lazy afternoons and late nights socializing with friends at the bar, this Asian-inspired cocktail might just be the perfect buzzworthy libation to serve.
As Bobrow will point out during his presentation at the Cannabis Drinks Expo, combining craft spirits and top-shelf cannabis into tasty little cocktails requires a little knowledge of what he refers to as “cannabis alchemy.” In other words, you simply can’t make a cannabis-based cocktail the same way you would a traditional mixed drink. First, you need to infuse the cannabis into the craft spirit of your choosing.
And that’s where the real science starts. In addition to being one of the nation’s top mixologists, Bobrow pioneered the science of infusing activated THC into the finest craft spirits. There are a few tricks of the trade that Bobrow employs, including the Magical Butter Machine, which, as it turns out, is a very effective botanical extractor that is perfect for extracting THC from a top-shelf flower.
As part of his Cannabis Drinks Expo presentation, Bobrow will walk participants through the entire process of Ardent Nova de-carbing, which is the process of forcing THC into a craft spirit with nitrous oxide and a little Magical Butter Machine infusion. The result is a perfectly infused craft spirit.
The process of de-carbing the cannabis helps to release its full psychoactive effect, which is one reason why these cannabis-infused cocktails are so popular with younger millennials – they are a great way to experience the full effect of active THC in a fun, relaxed environment.
In many ways, this new art and science of infusing cannabis into cocktails are at the intersection of two important movements within the United States – the craft distilling movement and the artisanal cocktail movement. The same artisanal craftsmanship that goes into distilling a craft spirit also goes into infusing the perfect cannabis cocktail.
If you’ve ever been curious about how to make a cannabis-infused cocktail, or if you’ve ever wondered how the legalization of recreational marijuana will change the wine & spirits industry, you’ll want to be part of this unique opportunity to see the master mixologist Warren Bobrow at work. Combining cannabis and cocktails is a hot new trend that is of interest not just to bartenders and mixologists, but also to owners of any on-premise establishment looking to increase their revenue and boost their bottom line.
