Red Berry Cardamom ‘Love Potion’ Hi-Fi Hops Spritz
Yield: 1 serving
Target Dose: 5 mg THC (using ½ bottle of Hi-Fi Hops ‘Reverb’ Hoppy Sparkling Water. Use the second half of the bottle to create a second round for you or a loved one)
Stemless wine glass
Cardamom Simple Syrup
1 cup water
1 cup granulated sugar
3 heaping tablespoons cracked cardamom pods
Cardamom Sugar Rim
1 tablespoon granulated sugar
¼ teaspoon ground cardamom
Strawberry Cardamom ‘Love Potion’ Hi-Fi Spritz
6 small strawberries, cut in half
½ cup raspberries
1 ½ ounces fresh-squeezed lemon juice
1 ounce cardamom simple syrup
Hi-Fi Hops Reverb Cannabis-Infused Hoppy Sparkling Water
Slices of strawberry, raspberries, and pink edible flowers, for garnish
Begin by preparing the cardamom simple syrup. Bring one cup of water to a boil in a saucepan of your choice. Add the sugar, then stir until it dissolves completely. Add the cracked cardamom pods, and continue to heat on low for 10 minutes. Remove from heat, cover the saucepan, then leave the cardamom pods in the simple syrup to infuse for about 45 minutes, or to taste. Allow the simple syrup to cool completely. Using a fine-mesh strainer, separate the liquid from the solids over a Mason jar. Discard the solids, then store the cardamom simple syrup in the refrigerator to chill.
Next, create the cardamom sugared rim. Combine the sugar and ground cardamom in a shallow saucer. Mix well using a spoon. Rim a stemless wine glass with a lemon wedge and then dip the top of the glass into the cardamom sugar blend to create a sugared rim. Set the glass aside as you prepare the drink.
In a shaker tin, muddle the strawberries and raspberries until they release their juices. Add the lemon juice, cardamom simple syrup, and ice, then shake for 15 seconds or until very cold. Carefully fine strain the liquid into the prepared stemless wine glass filled with fresh ice to remove the seeds and solids. Top with Hi-Fi Hops Reverb Cannabis-Infused Hoppy Sparkling Water, then gently stir to combine. Garnish with slices of strawberries, raspberries, and pink edible flowers to celebrate Valentine’s Day.
