I just got permission from my publisher to announce the pre-sell of my 4th book, Cannabis Cocktails. It will certainly be a grand adventure from this point forward. Mine is the first book of this type, and I am excited about the future! I dedicated this book to my late father who taught me (reluctantly) to stand on my own two feet. I think this book will help get me to that place.

What a HUGE HONOR…
Look whose here!!!
Is your mom sweet like honey? Warm and comforting like a cup of tea? Or even a little spicey? Klaus has never met his own mother, but that doesn’t stop him from celebrating all the moms in his life.
So he’s concocted a cocktail for all moms–no matter what shape or form they come in.
Springtime brings flavor into the equation because after the long winter we had, all Klaus wants is simplicity and flavor.
So what does Klaus want?
Fabulous Rio Red Grapefruit syrup, grenadine, Barr Hill Gin, Tenneyson Absinthe and Bitter End Thai Bitters???
Bitter End Bitters out in Santa Fe, New Mexico makes Thai Bitters that are like delving into a bowl of Thai Chilies. There is that heat element that is for certain…But then there are the flavors that open up, drop-by-concentrated-drop in a cocktail. I’ve tasted dozens of bitters and there really is nothing on the market that has the character of the Bitter End. Don’t get me wrong, I love bitters and could wax poetic for hours using them in my drinks. Bitters are just about the best thing for a hangover, according to Klaus. He knows.
Fruitations from Massachusetts are a most gorgeously concentrated, pure fruit syrups that are just exceptional in any kind of cocktail or mocktail. I just go gaga over the grapefruit syrup because it is like tucking into a juicy, ripe grapefruit. Less is more with this high quality syrup. You don’t have to use much, it’s that good!
A hit of Tenneyson Absinthe Royale is necessary. Try it and you’ll know why. It’s a secret otherwise!
