Most commercial food and beverage business is geared to only meat and alcohol imbibing consumers, and it’s a complete waste of time and money. People that don’t eat meat still want well prepared and great tasting food, just like those who don’t drink want tasty beverages that excite the senses. Vegetarians and non-drinkers have loads of annoying things to go through on a daily basis. Hell, people who drink booze and eat meat also want delicious options that don’t include either sometimes.

Quick Raspberry Shrub

  • 1 cup ripe raspberries
  • 1 cup Demerara sugar
  • 1 oz alcohol cannabis tincture*
  • Juice of a lemon
  • ¼ cup apple cider vinegar

Muddle raspberries with sugar in a jar. Allow to sit for at least 15 minutes, during which time the sugar will dissolve.

Strain seeds and solids. Add apple cider vinegar, lemon juice, and tincture. Pour 2 oz of juice mixture into a glass with ice.

Top with seltzer and garnish with a lemon peel.


*Cannabis Tincture:

Decarboxylate an eighth of finely ground cannabis by heating in an oven safe and well sealed container for 20 minutes at 225 degrees. Put cannabis and high proof spirit (like 151 rum) into a jar or vacuum sealed bag and place in a water bath at just under boiling for 1-3 hours. Strain into dropper bottle and dispense 1-5mL as a dose or use in recipes.
