Canndescent Five Jar

If Adrian Sedlin- the effervescent and ‘crackling with enthusiasm, ever pragmatic man’, his brain postulating in an intense, Miles Davis- Be Bop fashion, …You’ve gotta keep up because he is going a mile a minute and if you can’t take it- well we have a another plan for you… It’s about the way that you feel. And that way or Tao, is very personal, it is very intimate, you’re in there along with your tribe. It’s going to be a ride like a freight train on a high mountain pass, in the middle of the winter. It is filled with deeply personal emotions. Cannabis tends to unlock those feelings. Is that light ahead the end of the tunnel or the future? How do you want to feel? This is what makes Canndescent brilliant and it’s the very best money can buy!

Considering Gravy Cocktails? Perhaps It’s Time to Start Smoking Weed

There is a wealth of sheer depravity buried deep inside the guts of the dedicated boozehound that contributes largely to our debauched society. All one has to do is step inside the halls of Alcoholics Anonymous on any given day to hear rounds of checkered tales about how a lust for liquor has dragged these lost souls of a sudsy nation down a grave rabbit hole of raw dog promiscuity, legal complications and countless nights locked inside a foul-mouthed love affair with a toilet bowl. Indeed the grips of alcoholism is often a schizophrenic beast with puke breath just trying to make it past another vicious hangover to one more happy hour. But there is a point of no return—a rotten, stinkhole of a place, where the true bruisers of the bottle gather before the bitters end. This hellish scene, we are beyond sad to report, is apparently at Kentucky Fried Chicken, the birthplace of gravy cocktails.

Hot Toddy Time!

hot toddy

Is it the New Year already? It seems like Thanksgiving of 2017 was just yesterday. But what makes this time of the year most exciting for me is the creativity in the drinks. Sure, I’m tasting all sorts of mixed drinks- but the ones that I really want to taste are precisely the ones that mean memories for me. Those would be the hot ones. The drinks that go down my throat and make each sniff or sip something unique and friendly.   We survived the holidays, now we need some comfort at the end of the day- or if you are exceptionally optimistic- first thing in the morning.  You see, a hot toddy is not just for the after dinner / before bed experience.  Some even are just as refreshing and calming for a breakfast slurp.  Not that I’m advocating morning drinking!  Far from… But at the end of the day- where night turns to day- I’m looking towards drinks that have a robust nature to them. Tea based is a good place to start and no other tea works for morning than a rambunctious Lapsang Souchong tea from China.  This tea is heavily smoked and takes to botanical gin with a ‘how do you do’ that is reminiscent of Singapore before the Opium Wars.  It’s served as it should be in a perfectly formed, hand-made, porcelain teacup.  A simple sprig of chive rests gently over the steaming liquid- bitter chive against smoky tea.  The vivid green color against the brownish steaming tea. Quite elegant and this drink is absolutely perfect as a breakfast sipper during brunch.  And served in a teacup, no one knows your business- it’s steaming, right? Of course, I used the Breakfast Gin from FEW Spirits

END OF CANNABIS PROHIBITION

INDUSTRY EXPERTS & INFLUENCERS SHARE THOUGHTS ON THE END OF CANNABIS PROHIBITION IN CALIFORNIA

Weed

Californians did it. It’s the end of a 100 plus year cannabis prohibition in California. Two thousand eighteen is off to an exciting start. What exactly does this mean? You no longer need a medical recommendation to purchase cannabis from a dispensary. However, you’ll need your ID proving that you’re 21 years or older to obtain cannabis recreationally. How much are you allowed to buy? There’s a daily limit of one ounce of flower and eight grams of concentrates. Edibles are capped at 100 milligrams of THC per item. Welcome to the world of legal weed. In honor of the occasion, MAGNETIC spoke with everyone from LA-based musicians Dynasty Electrik to MagicalButter.com   executive director Chris Whitener to share their insight about this momentous occasion. Here’s what they had to say!

National Bloody Mary Day

Epic Smoked Bloody Marys For Your New Year’s Brunch

Epic Smoked Bloody Marys For Your New Year’s Brunch

 

January 1 is officially National Bloody Mary Day. The timing couldn’t be better. Even if you don’t require a “hair of the dog” hangover cure after New Year’s Eve revelries, you now have an unimpeachable excuse to quaff one of America’s most beloved brunch cocktails. Though the origins of this restorative beverage aren’t clear, food historians often credit a professional bartender, Fernand Petiot, with combining equal parts of vodka and tomato juice in the 1920s when he worked at Harry’s New York Bar in Paris. He later claimed he spent years tweaking the recipe until it resembled the classic drink we’ve come to know and love. The cocktail was said to be a favorite of Ernest Hemingway who was trying to hide his matitudinal alcohol consumption from his wife.
