Enhance The Autumn Vibes With Cbd Mulled Apple Cider
We are already a month into fall and that means the holiday season is fast approaching.
It seems that once Halloween arrives, time speeds up and New Year’s Eve is here before we know it – a phenomenon known by some as Hallowthanksmas.
Halloween is just around the corner! And what better way to get in spirit of things than a seasonal cannabis cocktail and some festive crafts?
There may be no better fall cocktail than the rarely featured Corpse Reviver #1. It’s spiced and and dark apple flavors are perfect this time of year and also plays into my obsession with zombie flicks and the classic Frankenstein.
The humble Daiquiri, aka the Dankiri, Instantly adds a beach vibe all year round.
Chalk full of terpenes, this improved “Dankiri” recipe prominently features Limonene, a major component in the oil of citrus fruit peels, and contains a 20:1 CBD tincture that works synergistically as a mood enhancer.
The brainchild of Jamie Evans, aka The Herb Somm, Thursday Infused is a private culinary event series featuring some of the Bay Area’s best canna-chef’s.
I had the honor of joining cannabis creatives Monica Lo and Scott Peabody from SousWeed while they presented delectable infused small plates alongside some fantastic sponsors like, CBDistillery, Somatik, Skunk Factory, Focus Concentrates, Real Oyster Cult, Levo, and more.
To kick off the night and compliment the tasting menu, I created a DIY Gin & Chronic welcome bar using garnishes and botanicals that highlighting many of the various terpenes being paired throughout the night.
Guests had the opportunity to discover new brands and experience making simple CBD / cannabinoid-infused drinks using CBDistilleries hemp-derived tinctures.
Even those canna-curious guests, who do not typically consume cannabis, felt comfortable crafting themselves a low ABV drink (as they knew their would be no psychoactive experience) and simply enjoyed the mood-enhancing benefits of hemp-derived cannabis responsibly.
As with any Herb Somm production, the event was a overwhelming success and everyone came away with a greater understanding and appreciation for the cannabis plant.
Select events are typically hosted twice a month in San Francisco. You can sign up to their mailing list for your personal invite. And if you’re interested in trying out CBDistilleries tinctures, make sure yu use code CHRONVIVANT at checkout to save on your purchase.

This 4:20 eve, I wanted to share a non-alcoholic THC drink alternative that’s easy to execute and even easier to drink.
This organic medicated mocktail is perfect for those looking to entertain on a limited budget – but still want to impress.
While “flowers” and sweets are standard on Valentine’s Day, to really impress that special someone in your life, you’re going to need to think outside the proverbial chocolate box.
My partner’s #1 love language just so happens to be “Acts of Service,” so for bae, there’s nothing more impressive or romantic than mixing up a signature cocktail.
“New Year’s Eve is like any other eve to me: I drink.” -Bukowski
On New Year’s I typically start off my night with a glass or two of champagne (or a French CBD5), and then graduate to a gin-based spirit like the Martini.
During most New Year Eve symposiums I can typically be found with a champagne flute in one hand and a joint in the other – not always a seamless pairing, and certainly less fun the morning after.
A little indulgence is fine every once in awhile but Chron Vivant is all about promoting responsible consumption, so I wanted to highlight a non-alcoholic drink alternative (with an optional cannabis-infused garnish) that’s perfect for those looking to partake in the festivities without the headache in the morning.
Jeff the 420 Chef highly recommends you clean your cannabis (especially if your flower is not organic). He has a great technique for leaching out chlorophyll and impurities like pesticides and metals which involves soaking your coarsely ground herb in distilled water for up to 72 hours.
You can always choose to skip this step, but “cleaning” your herb prior to infusing certainly helps to remove much of the chlorophyll and contaminants that contribute to the “weed-forward” flavor in many infused products.
