Holistic Medicine is a craft cocktail that was created by one of our very own judges here at the Cannabis Cocktail Collective. It’s her take on a popular mixed drink using ingredients commonly found in Ayurvedic medicine, focusing on the elements of Golden Milk which are turmeric, ginger, and black pepper. It’s said that these ingredients have anti-inflammatory and soothing properties when used together, so along with the CBD and cannabinoids found in the Ginja it’s not hard to imagine how this drink might be considered “holistic medicine”.
Note: You can make different variations of this cocktail based on what you have available to you. If you can’t find black pepper-turmeric apple brandy then you can substitute by using brandy and a pinch of the actual spices.
1½ oz. black pepper-turmeric apple brandy
½ oz. gold or dark rum
2oz Ginja Cannabis Concentrate
1 tablespoon honey (optional)
Basil leaf, lemon, and/or candied ginger (optional)
Combine all ingredients in a shaker with ice
Shake to chill and strain into glass over ice cubes
Garnish with basil leaf, lemon wedge, and/or candied ginger (optional)
