Cannabis Cocktails


Curious Casket & Corpse Reviver #1

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.

Cannabis Cocktails: Dankari

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.

Thursday Infused Event Series: Gin & Chronic

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.

French CBD5 Sparkling Non-Alcoholic Potable

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.

How To Clean Your Cannabis

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.
