• A basic decarbing using the microwave
• How to infuse decarbed Cannabis into Bourbon Whiskey using heat in a double boiler
• A Moscow Mule with Q-Ginger Beer and explain why you shouldn’t have more than one cocktail per hour and what to do if you have too much
• A Gin and Tonic with Barr Hill Gin and Tonic from Q-Drinks finished with bitters made with Cannabis Tincture for scent and color
The original apothecarians and many country medicine/folk healers used cannabis tinctures as part of their healing regiment. From the inactive forms of THCA and CBDA used for medicinal purposes to fully decarbed versions, strains in both the Indica (night time) and Sativa (day time) have become more mainstream. Individual strains of Cannabis may actually alleviate many ills that force people to their doctors in the first place. It’s “high” time for this essential healing ingredient to be embraced once again.
As we have seen the explosion of hand-crafted bitters behind the bar and the use of syrups, infusions, tinctures and tonics- along with craft sodas and even Colonial techniques like punches and cobblers, the use of Cannabis extracts in Craft Cocktails has become an important trend that is only just beginning.

Today we have a guest and brand ambassador for Mezan Rum in the house, for a full week of episodes and then some. We first look at Mezan Rum, of course, where we get a full explanation of the product from the brand ambassador himself: Warren Bobrow.
Not only does he know a lot about Mezan, he’s also a well established and well known cocktail creator in the industry known by all the big names. He’s got four cocktail books with a fifth book on the way this spring. And, we get him for the week to make cocktails with us and shed knowledge.
What can be better than that? He’s a wonderful guy to talk with and friendly on top if it all. Can’t beat that! Now, let’s drink some Mezan, three bottles, three variations with three unique takes on rum.
