Liquid Marijuana glows grass green. It’s flavor is fruity and sweet which makes it perfect for party shots and our sparkling tiki drink.
The Liquid Marijuana drink first made waves in bars across the south. This popular drink is a very drinkable shot with a smooth, sweet taste and hint of citrus. Despite the name, the liquid marijuana cocktail does not contain any actual cannabis. The drink gets the name from the vibrant bright green color.
This is a great shot to serve at a party or gathering. I like to serve them at my monthly poker nights I host. It is always a crowd pleaser and a great option.
Midori, Blue curaçao and pineapple juice combine (with a few other ingredients) to create this gorgeous green cocktail.
Does the Liquid Marijuana shot or drink have Marijuana in it?
The liquid marijuana drink does not contain any cannabis. Neither does the shot. The drink gets its name from the glowing green color. There is no relation to marijuana other than the brilliant green glow of the drink. The liquid marijuana drink cannot get you high. It may give you a slight buzz though.
Can Midori Melon Liqueur be substituted?
Midori melon liqueur can be difficult to locate in stores. The melon liqueur can be substituted for Dekuyper Schnapps Melon, or Hiram Walker melon liqueur. The melon flavor is essential in this drink, as well as the bright green flavor it contributes. Make sure you have some type of melon liqueur available if you want to make the perfect liquid marijuana.
This malibu rum recipe is more like a cruise drink experience. It has a Tiki cocktail vibe. Think ‘Don the beachcomber’, sandy white beaches and tiki bars.
