A Special Green Cocktail for Springtime Sippin’ ~ Lifted Snap Pea Canna-Cocktail

This refreshing Lifted Snap Pea cannabis-infused cocktail is a colorful and highly innovative riff on a classic gimlet. Hendrick’s Flora Adora Gin and our Lemon Sherbet CannaBitters give this drink its sparkling effects. Snap Pea Syrup adds a spring-inspired sweetness and gives this drink its bright green color.

The Lemon Sherbet CannaBitters add an earthy sweetness to the cocktail, which balances out the other tart flavors in the drink. They’re also an underrated way to magnify the effects of the Gin, so you end up drinking less alcohol.

This recipe can also be made non-alcoholic by simply swapping the gin for an extra splash of soda water. Whether you choose to make a canna-cocktail or canna-mocktail, the CannaBitters will give you an uplifting buzz and put you in a carefree state of mind.

A Recipe for a Sophisticated Buzz

The Lifted Snap Pea Canna-Cocktail is citrus forward and ideal for springtime sippin. Flora Adora Gin provides a smooth, botanical base. Fresh lemon juice gives the drink a sweet tanginess and a dash of fresh lime juice adds an extra layer of citrus sharpness. A splash of soda water gives the canna-cocktail a refreshing fizz. Both the snap pea syrup and CannaBitters lend an earthy bright sweetness that adds sophistication to the flavor profile and special green to the cocktail. A pinch of salt will enhance the complexity of the flavors and complement the drink’s sweetness.

What Are CannaBitters?

Simply add one dropper full into water or any beverage; by the time you finish your glass, you’ll start to feel the Real Strain FX®.

One full dropper of CannaBitters matches the potency of smoking one bowl of flower. A glass of water with CannaBitters is made for consumption at the same rate as cocktails. Or, to double up your buzz, drop CannaBitters into your favorite libation.

Step-by-Step Guide to Making Your Snap Pea Syrup

  1. Sugar Syrup Base: Begin by making a simple syrup. Combine equal parts water and sugar in a saucepan. Heat the mixture over medium heat, stirring continuously, until the sugar completely dissolves.

  3. Pureeing with Snap Peas: Once your syrup has cooled, transfer it to a blender. Add freshly chopped snap peas to the syrup.
  4. Blending: Blend the mixture until smooth. The goal is to fully incorporate the snap peas into the syrup, creating a homogeneous mixture.
  5. Straining: Strain the blended mixture through a fine mesh sieve into a clean container. This step removes the solid particles, leaving behind a smooth, green-tinted syrup. Ensure to press or stir the puree in the sieve to extract maximum flavor.
  6. Storage: Your snap pea syrup is now ready. Store it in a sealed container in the refrigerator. It can be kept for up to a week!

  1. Combine: In a glass or ice-filled shaker, mix the gin, snap pea syrup, fresh lemon and lime juices, and a pinch of sea salt.

  3. Strain: Pour the cocktail through a strainer into a chilled glass, achieving a smooth consistency.
  4. Enhance: Top with a splash of soda water for effervescence and enrich the drink with a dropper of Lemon Sherbet Canna Bitters.
  5. Garnish (optional): Add a flower leaf garnish or a lemon twist for visual flair.
