The Liquid Marijuana shot is, well, not exactly the most subtle cocktail in the world. From what we can gather, the intent of the “liquid marijuana” drink is to get you tipsy, but this particular Liquid Marijuana recipe calls for blue curaçao, Midori melon liqueur, coconut rum (commonly Malibu), and spiced rum—typically lower-proof spirits—making this a fairly low-ABV shooter despite its druggy name.
The Liquid Marijuana cocktail is sweet, fruity, bright greenish-blue, and ordering one at most craft cocktail bars will probably just get you a raised eyebrow and a quizzical look from the bartender. That said, sometimes it’s fun to have a party shot that doesn’t take itself too seriously.
For the record, there is absolutely no actual cannabis in this Liquid Marijuana drink. If real cannabis is what you’re looking for, check out our guide to cannabis cocktails and learn how the real stuff works.
