Nothing says summer like a fruity, refreshing Sangria! And since alcohol can increase the impact of THC by up to 50%. Along with the combination of the terpenes in both the grapes used to make the wine and the cannabinoids in your finest ganja taste delicious! This cannabis infused sangria recipe is sure to be a crowd pleaser. So lets get started:
This is a simple to follow recipe and you’re only going to need a few things.
- 1/8 grams of your finest weed (You could use more if you want. I came up with an 1/8 because I figured I can smoke an 1/8 by myself and drink a bottle of wine by myself so it seemed to be the right amount for me personally)
- 1 bottle of red wine (I used a Cabernet Sauvignon, my favorite, which ever wine you choose make sure it’s a dry red, not a sweet red)
- 10 pineapple chunks about a 1/2inch by a 1/2 inch cubed
- 1 orange sliced up thin
- 10 strawberries hulled and diced
- 14-20 green grapes cut in half
- 1 large pot or saucepan
- Cheesecloth and/or strainer (I use both)
- A pitcher
Once you’ve completed your prep the next part is called fortifying/infusing the wine. In theory Sangria is a fruit infused wine. But we are taking one step further by adding herb to it. Similar to what they have done since biblical times in making mulled wine. In case you don’t know the difference between mulled wine and sangria is that you serve sangria cold, that’s it.
- Pour the wine into the pot and place it on the stove.
- Add cannabis and half the above listed fruit, of coarse you can use different fruit if you’d like. However this recipe will bring out and enhance several elements of both the wine and the cannabis. It is a fact that vitamin C and citrus add to the entourage effect.
- Boil the mixture at a low flame for about two hours, checking frequently to make sure it’s not all evaporating. The process of boiling everything together will decarboxylate the cannabis.
- Strain the wine from the fruit and cannabis through a cheesecloth and/or strainer. See I put the cheesecloth in the strainer but you really don’t have to use both.
- Let the wine cool off.
- Fill a pitcher with remaining fruit and ice.
- And finally pour the infused wine you just created into your fruit and ice filled pitcher.
Warning: The results may be stronger than you expected, so take it slow and of coarse enjoy!
FYI: Don’t forget to eat the fruit at the the end either. Little fact about me, I got drunk for the 1st time when I was around 4 or 5 years old at a New Years eve party because my very young mother didn’t know that the fruit absorbs the liquor and I was eating everybody’s cocktail cherries in their drinks. So eat the fruit it’s an edible on its own. (I still love cocktail cherries by the way)
Hope you liked my cannabis infused sangria recipe and as always stay lit!
