Der neue heiße Scheiß in prohibitionsbefreiten US-Staaten nach Ganja Cuisine? Underground Marijuana-Bars, in denen Cocktails und Drinks auf Dope-Basis gereicht werden. Best of both worlds, wobei Gras eingelegt in Schnaps anscheinend ziemlich fies wird: „Those who have experience with making edibles and potables warn that this can create an overly potent drink“. Na dann!
Mixologists are trying out two kinds of potables: cocktails spiked with THC (where legal), and cocktails designed to mimic the actual green, skunky flavors of marijuana.
Compared to edibles, for which oil- or butter-based extractions are favored, tinctures (herbal essences that are extracted by alcohol) are the preferred vehicle for drinks. Bartenders use Everclear or a different high-proof alcohol to draw THC from the plant, a process similar to that used to make bitters. The most popular seems to involve grinding and then baking the bud at a low temperature (a process called “decarboxylation”) before steeping it in alcohol for a stretch that can range from hours to days. The liquid is then strained and stored, often in a container with an eyedropper or dasher attachment. (I’m coining the term “cannabitters” here and now.)
