Jam-packed with TERPENES, Oleo Saccharum translates to “oil sugar” and was a staple in the manufacture of old-timey punches.
Previously used to stretch limited supplies of fresh citrus during long sailing and naval expeditions, it was commonly mixed with high-proof gins and rums to create some of the very first punches. Once a relatively obscure ingredient, Oleo Saccrum is making a comeback thanks to the resurging popularity of craft punches.
I’m constantly looking for creative uses for my infusions. I’ve been having so much fun experimenting with my new LEVO that I recently found myself with a glut of infused oils to play with.
I had leftover cannabis-infused extra virgin olive oil after making my easy infused olive oil cake, so I decided to infuse some green olives and fat-washed gin. These infused olives are always handy to have lying around the bar for garnishing savory cocktails and they also make beautiful last-minute gifts tucked into a glass jar with a ribbon around the top.
