In this blog post, we’ll take a look at how you can use cannabis terpenes to create new and exciting cocktails that will delight your guests or your customers !
1. Cannabis terpenes and cocktails
Cannabis terpenes are the aromatic compounds found in the essential oils of the cannabis plant. These terpenes are responsible for the unique flavors and aromas of different strains of cannabis, and they also have a number of potential health benefits. In recent years, cannabis terpenes have become increasingly popular as a way to add flavor and aroma to cocktails and other drinks.
2. Getting started
To get started, you will have to choose the strain of cannabis you want to add to your cocktail. There are many possibilities depending on the characteristic taste of the cannabis strain you will choose. Once you have chosen your strain, you’ll need to purchase some high-quality cannabis terpenes.

3. How to use cannabis terpenes in your cocktails
Once you have your cannabis terpenes, you’ll need to decide how you want to use them in your cocktails. You have three options :
One option is to simply add a few drops of the terpenes to your cocktail mixture. This will add a subtle hint of flavor and aroma, and you can experiment with different amounts to find the perfect balance for your taste. Just be sure to start with a small amount, as terpenes can be very potent and a little goes a long way.
Another option is to infuse your cocktail with cannabis terpenes by using a tincture. To make a tincture, you’ll need to mix the terpenes with a high-proof alcohol, such as vodka or gin, and leave the mixture to mature for 24 hours. Once the mixture is fully combined, you can then add a small amount to your cocktail to give it a unique and aromatic twist.
Finally, you can also use cannabis terpenes to create your own simple syrups, which can be added to a variety of different cocktails to give them a unique and aromatic twist. To make a simple syrup, combine equal parts sugar and water in a saucepan and bring the mixture to a boil. Once the sugar has fully dissolved, remove the pan from the heat and stir in a few drops of your chosen cannabis terpenes. Let the syrup cool, then use it to sweeten and flavor your cocktails.
Using cannabis terpenes in cocktails is a great way to add a unique and aromatic twist to your drinks. Just be sure to start with a small amount, as terpenes can be very potent, and always use high-quality terpenes from a reputable source, Like the ones from Lilium Xtract. Happy mixing !
