Learn How to Create Your Own Type of Cannabis-Infused Cocktails with Warren Bobrow at 2019 Cannabis Drinks Expo.

Warren BobrowKnown in many bar-tending circles simply as the “Cocktail Whisperer,” Warren Bobrow has literally written the book on how to create new types of cannabis cocktails – everything from coffee and tea-based beverages to cooling lemonades and sparkling herbal infusions. In fact, his new book “Cannabis Cocktails, Mocktails and Tonics” illustrates more than 75 drinks that you can make with infused cannabis. As a result, thanks to the creativity of celebrated mixologists like Bobrow, bartenders have a new way to surprise and delight their patrons: the cannabis-infused cocktail.

At the upcoming 2019 Cannabis Drinks Expo in San Francisco, Bobrow will be demonstrating to audience members how to create their own cannabis-infused cocktails, focusing on one exotic creation inspired by Vietnamese street vendors. This iced cannabis drink features THC-infused condensed milk with sugarcane juice and coconut water ice. For lazy afternoons and late nights socializing with friends at the bar, this Asian-inspired cocktail might just be the perfect buzz worthy libation to serve.

As Bobrow will point out during his presentation at the Cannabis Drinks Expo, combining craft spirits and top-shelf cannabis into tasty little cocktails requires a little knowledge of what he refers to as “cannabis alchemy.” In other words, you simply can’t make a cannabis-based cocktail the same way you would a traditional mixed drink. First, you need to infuse the cannabis into the craft spirit of your choosing.
