Part iced tea, part lemonade, this Lavender Blue Dream Palmer might be your new summer go-to. Enhanced with homemade cannabis-infused lemonade, this easy sipper is incredibly refreshing and simple to create as long as you have the ingredients on hand. I highly recommend purchasing Republic of Tea's Blueberry Lavender Tea bags. The flavors and color this specific tea brings to the drink is what makes it so special! Enjoy.
Lavender Blue Dream Palmer
Small sauce pan or tea kettle
4 ounces freshly-brewed Republic of Tea Blueberry Lavender Tea (chilled or room temp)
4 ounces cannabis-infused Lemonade
Lemon wheels, fresh blueberries, and a sprig of lavender to garnish
Begin by brewing the Blueberry Lavender Tea. Using a small saucepan or tea kettle, boil 1 cup of water, then remove from heat. Add two tea bags to the hot water and steep for 7 minutes. Remove the tea bags, then let cool to room temperature or pop into the refrigerator to chill the liquid. Once chilled, fill a highball glass with ice. Add equal parts Blueberry Lavender Tea and cannabis-infused Lemonade, then stir together using a bar spoon. Add the lemon wheels, blueberries, and lavender sprig to garnish.
How to Make Cannabis-Infused Lemonade
Yield: 11 ounces
Small mixing bowl
8 ounces fresh-squeezed Lemon Juice
1 ounce cannabis-infused Simple Syrup
2 ounces non-infused Simple Syrup
Using a citrus press, juice the lemons over a small mixing bowl (remove the seeds), then begin to whisk in the simple syrups until well combined. Pour into a 16-ounce Mason jar, then store in the refrigerator to chill. Shake well before serving.
