Entering a new phase of the cannabis freedom revolution has really brought out the creative side of partying people across the country. With legalization efforts sweeping the nation, millions of Americans can now openly discuss fun and innovative ways to incorporate cannabis into their daily routine. The future of creating unique cannabis-based cocktails is here now. And MagicalButter.com has a pitcherful of no-fuss recipes that will kick your next dinner party up a notch or three, or make a quiet evening at home much more interesting.

Specialty drinks have brought out the inner mixologist in people everywhere, and putting a canna-twist on classic cocktails makes for quite the treat. There’s something for every mood and a combination for every palate. [It’s a good idea to remain aware, though, that the two alcohols ethanol and tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) tend to complement and amplify one another’s effects—which can be a challenge if unchecked, or very enjoyable in moderation. We suggest the second one.]

Using a Botanical Extractor, you can easily recreate these delicious drinks and bring forth a fun, responsible atmosphere for your guests. Creating infused “canncoctions” is beyond simple. The video below from MagicalButter’s Executive Chef Joey Galeano shows just how easy making tinctures can be.

If you’re looking for a fun, new way to incorporate your MB tincture into some truly delicious beverages, look no further than these creations!
