Pairings: A Citrusy Splash

Dabstract Curated Collection Strange Lemons Sauce & THCA paired with a Unicorn Vodka Lemon Drop.

Surprise your taste buds with a concentrate and cocktail pairing with a twist! Americans love a gimmick (and so do stoners), so we worked up a lemon drop pairing that doesn’t look like your typical drink. But first, we must get stoned … and the Strange Lemons with THCA from Dabstract’s Curated Collection is oozing with a creamy and sour citrus gas that ignites the senses.

The combination of high-terpene extract with THCA diamonds produces a spectacular high that crushes the body and mind in an overwhelmingly powerful buzz. The terp sauce brings the flavor and the diamonds pack the power, so taking low-temp dabs combines the best of both worlds. First puffs are bright and citrusy, with a bold head rush that numbs the frontal lobes while melting the mind into the body in a puddley, heavily stoned euphoria.

Paired with the Unicorn Butterfly Pea Vodka – a tea-infused color-changing spirit that goes from clear to purple with the addition of citric acid – the Lemon Drop tastes like the real thing, even if the sugary tart treat is playing games with the color. Together, the pairing delivers a euphoric, high-class buzz that feels sophisticated and glowy – perfect for a post-Labor Day party. If you’re a white-wearing rulebreaker, just don’t spill that purple drink!
