THC-Infused Cucumber Lime & Mint Punch for Summer

Cucumber Lime & Mint Punch

I was contemplating the perfect summer cocktail… one that is refreshing yet full-bodied in the approach. This one is similar to a margarita - the cocktail, not the pizza! - and is safe to imbibe when you are not planning on driving anywhere.


This Cucumber Lime & Mint Summer Punch Cocktail is easy to drink and easy to make - but watch out if the temperature rises about one hundred degrees. It’s got a bunch of ya ya in it! 


This refreshing cocktail has a base of cucumber water, add to that a simple syrup made with agave syrup and mint with a squeeze of freshly grilled lime juice. Add to that some coconut water ice and THC. Yes, THC. If you have been following my writing for any given amount of time I could teach you to infuse THC into agave simple syrup. I do a 1:1, 1 cup of spring water to 1 cup of agave... you can use the Levo machine, one cup at a time. Decarb your cannabis then place it in the Levo to run a batch and voila! You’ll have THC-infused Stony Agave Syrup.


This drink should be prepared with those long, plastic-wrapped European Cucumbers. I’d get about ten of them and put them in your juicer, add fresh mint to the cucumber juice and cool in the fridge for a couple hours to combine the flavors. I try to make at least two quarts of this delicious juice at a time.


Meanwhile, decarb about an ounce of your favorite cannabis. Look at my fourth book, Cannabis Cocktails, Mocktails & Tonics for deeper instructions. You can use the Ardent, which gives you a perfect decarb every time. The Levo also decarbs, just in smaller amounts. Add the cannabis to the container per the machine instructions on the Levo and add 1 cup of the agave syrup to the vessel. 


Run the batch and cool - You will have the best THC-infused agave!

Instructions

  1. Combine the cucumber and mint juice, 2 quarts if you can (strained please), with one cup of agave syrup.
