The day of the cannabis cocktail is upon us. With 56% of the state voting to pass Proposition 64 on November 9, California will control, regulate and tax adult marijuana. With availability comes experimentation, and particularly in the bartending community and the cocktails they make. True North Tavern is proud to be the first bar in San Diego to offer the first-ever cannabis cocktail.  Prop 64 Recipe:In a cocktail shaker, homemade Amarillo hop bitters, egg white, lime simple syrup, Chareau, and Nolets are given a dry shake and then a quick wet shake; poured into a Champagne coupe and topped with a few drops of CBD (cannabis oil) and garnished with a sprig of mint. Watch how it all gets assembled here.  It is important to know that cannabis is composed of hundreds of cannabinoids, that have various effects on the brain and body. CBD is a key ingredient found in cannabis that is non-psychoactive. You will feel a buzz from the alcohol but you will not be getting the high most people associate with marijuana.
