Yuzu Raspberry Rose Sparkling Colada

Recipe By: Jamie Evans, The Herb Somm and Author of The Ultimate Guide to CBD and Cannabis Drinks

Mixing up a tropical drink is one of the best ways to greet summer. If you’re a Piña Colada fan, there are many ways to enhance this delicious beverage without having to include alcohol. I recommend going spirit-free and crafting a cannabis-infused colada! But this time, go sparkling with the addition of Gem + Jane Yuzu Raspberry Rose.

Combining coconut, pineapple juice, fresh raspberries, lime juice, and a splash of Gem + Jane, this bubbly and refreshing cannabis colada will excite the senses. With a melody of creamy tropical and raspberry notes followed by a soft essence of yuzu and rose, this enchanting blend awakens the taste buds, providing a tropical vacation for your palate.

Because this drink contains zero alcohol, it has fewer calories than the standard Piña Colada, plus it won’t lead to a hangover. Instead, feel uplifted and mildly stimulated with a low-dose of THCV, Delta-9 THC, and CBD. This unique combination of phytocannabinoids are enhanced by the natural terpenes found in Gem + Jane Yuzu Raspberry Rose (such as limonene and geraniol) for an ultra-pleasurable drinking experience.

Equipment

  • Blender
  • Shaker tin
  • Muddler
  • Hawthorn
  • Fine-mesh strainer
  • Stemless wine glass
  • Bar spoon
Ingredients
  • 2 ounces unsweetened coconut milk
  • 2 tablespoons cream of coconut, Coco Lopez recommended for best flavor
  • 2 ounces pineapple juice
  • ¼ cup fresh raspberries
  • ½ ounce fresh-squeezed lime juice
  • Ice
  • Gem + Jane Yuzu Raspberry Rose

Preparation

Combine the unsweetened coconut milk, cream of coconut, and pineapple juice in the bottom of a blender. Blend on high until the liquid is mixed well. Set aside. Add the raspberries and lime juice in the bottom of a shaker tin. Begin to muddle until the raspberries release their juices. Reblend the coconut pineapple juice on high for 2 seconds, then pour into the shaker tin. Add ice, then shake for 15 seconds or until cold. Fill a stemless wine glass with fresh ice, then strain through a fine-mesh strainer into the glass to remove the solids. Top with a splash of Gem + Jane Yuzu Raspberry Rose, then stir to combine. Garnish with a pineapple leaf, slice of pineapple, raspberries and a mini pink rose. Serve immediately, and enjoy!
