This collection of 75 recipes includes cocktails featuring Cannabis-infused liquors, plus drinks utilizing Cannabis tinctures and drinks flavored with marijuana smoke.

Looking beyond cocktails, the tome investigates successful tonics, syrups, shrubs, bitters, compound bitter and infused oils suitable for use in any drink. You can start your day with Cannabis coffee, or with tea and milk-based beverages for healing and relaxation. Afternoon pick-me-ups can include gut-soothing herbal infusions and mood-enhancing syrups. Lemonades can bring cool refreshment —not just to your tummy — but to your brain as well. And at the end of the day, you can always have an after-dinner Cannabis drink (or two!) for relaxation at the end of a good meal. This overlooked masterpiece from 2016 is an informative and well-written addition to your Cannabis bookshelf. Bobrow created the popular blog CocktailWhisperer.com. He’s also the author of “Apothecary Cocktails.”
