DIY - Making a love potion vodka cocktail with weed
If you’re looking for a vibrant and sweet Valentine’s Day drink, then you’ve come to the right place! This vodka love potion combines some of the most delicious flavors, and its bright colours are sure to soften the mood in any room.
What is a love potion vodka cocktail?
It’s exactly like the name says. A sweet infusion of delectable sweet grapefruit juice combined with two different types of alcohol and then garnished with a beautiful red twist of additions. It’s the perfect red to suit the holiday of lovers or any day with that special someone, and the effects are sure to help everyone loosen up and get in the mood.
This is where things can get a little bit tricky, as it’s best if you can begin the process of infusion several months in advance of the big day so that the vodka has enough time to properly and completely extract the powerful cannabinoids from cannabis. If that’s a possibility or at least something you’d like to know how to do, then you should head on over to our guide on the subject. For those with less time, it works almost as well to add a small measures dose of oil or tincture to the vodka before it’s stirred into the drink.
Part of the delightful fruity flavour is due to the addition of peach schnapps which boasts a strong aroma with just enough bite to take the edge off. If you don’t have or can’t get any, then a light peach liqueur is compatible in a pinch, and it also tastes oh so good.
*It is not recommended to infuse the schnapps because it doesn’t have a very high alcohol content which is necessary for the extraction process to work.*
Red grapefruit juice
There is nothing more refreshing and invigorating than a tall glass of grapefruit juice, which is another essential element of this vodka cocktail recipe. It’s also got a really aesthetically appealing red hue that is perfect for Valentine’s Day, however, if you don’t have any on hand, then just about any other real fruit juice alongside a few drops of red food colouring (when needed) will work well instead.
Technically the garnish on this drink is absolutely optional, but it sure does make it look amazing. Plus, it provides a palette cleanser for after the glass is empty. All you need is a couple of toothpicks, strawberries and cherries for a super fancy twist.
Now it’s time to make the real magic happen by combining all of the essential components to create a love potion vodka cocktail for two. The measurements provided here will be enough to make only two glasses, so if you’re in a mood to get lit, then you might want to double them so that you’ve got round-two ready when you are!
