Contrary to what others think, liquid marijuana does not contain any trace of cannabis. It is a fruity cocktail that will probably give you a second look from somebody unfamiliar with it. The name comes from its green coloring, owing to the blue curacao and the yellow pineapple juice.

Know the Liquid Marijuana Drink Ingredients

Various ingredients for Liquid Marijuana
  • Midori - A melon-flavored liqueur was exclusively produced in Japan until 1987. Temper the alcohol content in your cocktail mix with this low alcohol ingredient.
  • Spiced rum - Add character to your drinks with the spiced rum. While it is not a liquor particularly loved by the bar, it can add the needed kick to your cocktails and shots.
  • Schnapps - Not to be mistaken with liqueurs because of their fruity flavor, schnapps are made by fermenting fruit juices along with the base liquor. On the other hand, Liqueur is created simply by letting a fruit or fruit peel of choice steep in vodka, tequila, rum, or other liquors. Blue curacao is an example of a liqueur.
  • Coconut rum - Let your alcohol glide down with the sweetness of this rum. Don’t let the sweetness fool you, though. It is relatively potent with the 70 proof mark.
  • Sweet and sour mix - Combines lemon and lime juice with simple syrup to give your cocktails a refreshing taste.

Tequila-based liquid marijuana is best paired with pork, chicken, and raw seafood dishes. Surprisingly, chocolate pairs well with tequila-based drinks as it tempers the bitter taste of the tequila. Some of the most recommended dishes that pair well with tequila-based drinks are hot mozzarella sticks, popcorn, ceviche, and jalapeño popper nachos.

For rum-based liquid marijuana, banana foster laced with rum works well. The peanut butter in chicken satay also pairs well with the rum, making it an excellent dish to go with liquid marijuana. Other suggestions are pineapple upside-down cake, shrimp ceviche, and fried chicken.
