Welcome to another exciting adventure in the world of culinary cannabis! Today, we’re going to explore a classic recipe that’s perfect for those looking to combine the soothing effects of marijuana with the warm embrace of a delicious drink. Get ready to indulge in a little something we like to call “Hot Buttered Bhang.
- 1/8 lb unsalted butter
- 1/3 to 1/2 oz of the herb (cannabis)
- 1 cup of vodka
- 1 tablespoon brown sugar
- A pinch or two of cinnamon and cardamom (optional)
- Honey (for sweetening, if desired)
Note: The potency of your cannabis may vary, so use your judgment when measuring based on your knowledge of the strain you’re using.
Melt the Butter: In a saucepan, melt 1/8 pound of unsalted butter over medium heat.
Add the Cannabis: Crumble your cannabis into the melted butter and stir it in. Continue stirring over medium heat for about a minute. This step is crucial for infusing the cannabis into the butter.
Introduce the Vodka: While the mixture is still hot or sizzling, swiftly pour in 1 cup of vodka. Be cautious to prevent any spattering.
Sweeten the Pot: Stir in 1 tablespoon of brown sugar. At this point, you can also add a pinch or two of cinnamon and cardamom if you want to infuse some extra flavor into your Hot Buttered Bhang.
Boil and Infuse: Continue to boil the mixture for 30 seconds or more, making sure to stir continuously. This step allows the cannabis to fully infuse into the mixture.
Strain the Liquids: After boiling to your desired level, strain the liquid through a strainer. Use the back of a spoon to press the mixture in the strainer to extract all the juices. You can discard the leftover cannabis material or, for the resourceful ones, consider boiling it again in fresh vodka to salvage more materials.
Sweeten to Taste: If you prefer a sweeter taste, you can add honey to your Hot Buttered Bhang. Sweeten to your liking and stir until well combined.
Enjoy the Journey: The effects of the cannabis may start to be felt in less than fifteen minutes. Sip your Hot Buttered Bhang slowly, savoring the flavors and the relaxing experience it brings. Cheers to a cozy and elevated evening!
