Benny Goodman Fizz


Warren Bobrow is a firm believer in the homeopathic values of cannabis, especially when paired with the curative powers of a good cocktail. This recipe, which gives delicate floral flavors an herbaceous kick, comes from Bobrow’s “Cannabis Cocktails, Mocktails, & Tonics,” coming out June 2016 through Quarto Publishing.

  • 1 ounce cannabis-infused gin
  • 2 ounces rose simple syrup
  • 1 ounce seltzer water
  • 3-4 drop grapefruit bitters
  • Esprit Edouard Absinthe Supérieure, in atomizer
  • 1 long grapefruit twist


Fill a Collins glass with ice and top with a little water. Set aside for a few minutes to chill, then discard the ice water.

Fill a Boston shaker three-quarters full with ice. Add the gin and the rose simple syrup, then shake hard for 12 seconds. Pour into a coupe glass and add the seltzer water. Dot with the grapefruit bitters, spray the top of the drink with the absinthe, and garnish with a grapefruit zest twist.
