Warren Bobrow, @WarrenBobrow1, the Cocktail Whisperer, graciously shares to us this rum-based cannabis cocktail recipe called The Future is Uncertain and the End is Always Near. This cannabis recipe is found in his book, Cannabis Cocktails, Mocktails & Tonics.
I use Rhum Agricole in all of my rum-based cocktails.
It’s made from freshly crushed sugarcane—unlike most of the mainstream stuff, which is derived from industrially-produced molasses.
And the only thing better than Rhum Agricole is VSOP Rhum Agricole. “VSOP” stands for “Very Special Old Pale,” and it designates a rhum that’s been aged in barrels made of French white oak.
Get your hands on a bottle if you can: then, medicate it with Indica Hybrid Skunk 47, and use it in an after-dinner The Future Is Uncertain.
Skunk 47 takes to the toasty flavors of the Rhum and the grilled kiwi fruit so well.
Its scent is like a baby skunk—one with a really bad attitude, because it’s all over you from the minute you smell it.
But that’s a good thing, because the baby-skunk scent quickly gives way to notes of black coffee, leading to freshly turned soil, and saddle leather.
1/2 KIWI, GRILLED (SEE DIRECTIONS BELOW)
2 OUNCES (60 ML) CANNABIS-INFUSED VSOP RHUM AGRICOLE
1/4 OUNCE ORGEAT SYRUP
1 LARGE CUBE COCONUT WATER ICE
To grill the kiwi: Peel a kiwi and cut it in half lengthwise.
Place the fruit cut side down on a hot cast-iron pan for 2-3 minutes per side to help the fruit caramelize.
Using a muddler or the end of a wooden spoon, muddle the grilled kiwi in a Boston shaker.
Add 1 ounce of the Rhum Agricole, then continue to muddle.
Add the orgeat syrup, and fill the shaker three-quarters full with ice.
Add the rest of the Rhum Agricole, then cap and shake hard for 10 seconds.
Pour the mixture into a rocks glass over a large cube of coconut water ice, and serve immediately.
