To make a cannabis infused simple syrup, simply bring equal parts sugar and water to a boil, then when cooled stir in 1 oz of glycerin based cannabis tincture per cup of syrup.
In a cocktail shaker, mix all ingredients with ice and shake extremely vigorously for at least 45 seconds to develop the thick foam. Strain into a rocks glass over ice or neat into a coupe glass.
To make cannabis leaf garnish, use pinking shears to give the palm-like fronds a serrated edge that looks like the special ingredient.
Arrange into a 7-leaf design and stick with a skewer, or simply imply the aesthetic of cannabis plants with a single leaf.
You can also be extra like me and roll a joint into the pineapple leaf, securing with a toothpick and some lemon peels for extra sensory effects.

Trying other juices and more or less cannabis would be totally fine, Hemingway was known for his double order with a whopping four ounces of rum, tons of grapefruit, maraschino liqueur and no sugar. Don’t be afraid to experiment, but try this one first, and happy shaking.
