Few things in this world have the versatility of cannabutter. From savory to sweet, it’s hard to beat mowing down any dish featuring the creaminess of butter infused with the THC we so love. But as the edible market continues to evolve, we’re seeing increasingly delectable ways of getting our Cannabis fix – including Chef Bombshell’s THCyrups. Currently available in three flavors – cherry, blueberry, and grape – these syrups offer a cornucopia of endless possibilities, which is why we couldn’t settle on just one recipe to share.
One thing to know about Alaska’s infamous Chef Bombshell is that she doesn’t play around when it comes to Cannabis and the culinary arts. Each of the three syrups is as flavorful as they are potent. We’re talking 50mg of THC packed into a small two-ounce bottle. But that’s not all. The syrups also have between 0.17 – 0.99mg of CBD per bottle. Their potency, coupled with their irresistible flavors, make them perfect for edible connoisseurs with hearty tolerance levels. So, newbs beware when sampling these babies!
To give you an idea of how you can pair the syrups for maximum enjoyment, we enlisted the help of the Bombshell herself. The results were two signature mocktails – Mango Cherry Sunrise and Grape Mota-Mule – and the best damn waffles we’ve ever tasted.
The Mango Cherry Sunrise’s bright summer colors and fresh flavor make it feel like an event despite its simple ingredient list: fresh mango, lemon juice, sugar, ice, and of course, cherry THCyrup. We recommend putting on The Travel Channel while you let this mocktail carry you away on a tropical vacation. Just make sure you have your afternoon cleared because you will be in a euphoric cloud for at least several hours once the THC kicks in.
For those with a more sophisticated palate, we’d recommend giving the Grape Mota-Mule a try. The sweetness of grape THCyrup blends with ginger beer and lime to tickle both your sweet and sour taste buds. Although the Mota-Mule is served over ice, the heat of the ginger beer lingers in the back of your throat after every sip, giving your whole body a warm tingle.
For Bombshell’s final recipe, she amped up plain-old grocery store pancake syrup with an entire bottle of blueberry THCyrup. To further step up your Sunday brunch game, she recommends adding some blueberries to your waffles and pancakes before making them in your very own Cannabis leaf-shaped waffle maker from Waffleye.
