Raki is an all-purpose, age-old remedy for any and every occasion. The signature sweetened, anise-flavoured drink of Turkey is “the go-to spirit for celebrating a promotion or a birthday or for muting the pain of a job loss or the end of a relationship,” notes an article on CNN Travel.
As Canadians celebrate legalization 2.0, raki is also the recommended choice for a THC infusion, Bosporus cocktail. “The infused mix is delicious and gets you stoned without anyone smelling anything—it’s a non-confrontational way to consume cannabis,” Warren Bobrow, known as the Cocktail Whisperer in the hospitality industry, tells The GrowthOp.
Mixologist, bartender and contributing writer for Forbes, Bobrow is the author of, among other books, Cannabis Cocktails, Mocktails & Tonics: The Art of Spirited Drinks and Buzz-Worthy Libations.
His only piece of advice: “The cannabis strain that you use must not be CBD. In my opinion, CBD is useless; I don’t work with hemp, either. It does nothing other than lighten your pocketbook,” he says.
