Beside-the-Bosphorus

This drink is made for breakfast. It’s also very effective before lunch, after a meal and just before retiring for the night. It’s not your typical sleep elixir, far from it. But what it does offer is a measure of civility. It’s understood in countries that hold coffee as part of their day-to-day motion, that a cannabis infused “Turkish” coffee would be especially delicious. I think cardamom and anisette notes when I sip Turkish coffee. Now add to the folds of flavor dripping slurps of oily cannabutter. The decarbed cannabis layering flavors of flaky brioche toast and raspberry fruit jam smeared upon the bittersweet quality of the smoky coffee. Turkish coffee is enjoyed around the clock. This unique recipe should be savored instead of slurped, lest you get destroyed.
