“Cannabis can have a presence in the dinner entrées and the desserts at an event. One of our panel experts from the event, Chef Sunflower [aka Enid Parham], plans the meals with ‘microdoses’ of cannabis so there is not too much consumed at one time,” says Connie Seibt, event manager and vice president of programs and education, ILEA Detroit. “It should be planned ahead for the type of cannabis to infuse in the foods, i.e. providing a relaxing mood versus high energy.

 

Where it all began—the heart of the exotic cocktail as enjoyed for centuries in Jamaica. One of sour (lime juice), two of sweet (demerara sugar), three of strong (fine Jamaican rum), four of weak (some ice). Plus five of spice to make it nice (allspice and bitters).

In a cocktail shaker combine the following ingredients:

• 1 oz. freshly squeezed lime juice

• 3/4 oz. Demerara simple syrup*

• 1/4 oz. St. Elizabeth's Allspice Dram

• 3 oz. Appleton Estate 12 Year Old Rare Blend

• 2 dashes Angostura Bitters
