In the age of social distancing, it's been a while since some of us have seen our friends. When Coral reached out about a backyard sesh fuled by Absolute Extracts & Lagunitas Hi-Fi Hops, I jumped at the chance to make it an epic one. I busted out the BeerGlass BHOttle for some dabs, enjoyed some infused gummies, and prepared some mixers to help us beat the heat!
As a beer and cannabis enthusiast, this is one of my favorite collaborations on the market today. You might remember a blog post I did when this product debuted where we go over the long term love Lagunitas has maintained with the cannabis world. As a lover of all tasty creations, I was so excited to whip up some mixers. We carried the non-infused Hop Water at the restaurant I work at and making drinks with it was my favorite!
The only thing better than a frosty bottle of Hi-Fi Hops are some fresh mixers to go with it! The beauty of cooking is that you can make it your own, so feel free to switch out any of these ingredients for anything that tickles your fancy. I used simple syrup to make these drinks, but don't worry it's super easy to make. Simple syrup is just equal parts water and sugar, simmered until it makes a syrup. You can replace the water with fruit juice, or add diced fruit directly to the water and sugar mixture, just make sure you cut the sugar depending on how sweet your fruit is. Have fun with it, once you realize how easy it is you'll be adding fancy simple syrups to all your drinks! I find the 36oz mason jar works best these mixes.
