There's a cannabis-infused cocktail event coming to Toronto next week

Feb 14 2020, 11:51 am

Going out for drinks remains one of the premier features of adulthood. Whether you’re loosening up after a tough day or celebrating hard-fought victories, communal libations are often a go-to for unwinding for many who choose to indulge.

Likewise, cannabis users like to equate their end-of-the-day buzz with that evening glass of wine or cocktail.

For those looking to have both, Dope Cocktails might be the answer.

Billed as a night of unique olfactory experience, the event offers guests the chance to try some non-alcoholic THC and CBD cannabis cocktails.

On offer will be nine “low-dose” cocktails served alongside foods prepared by a local chef.

However, if you’ve already gotten your sea legs when it comes to ingesting the green, the event is prepared for you.

“For the THC ‘canna-seurs’ at the event, additional mgs/THC drops will be available,” event organizer, Drink Inc., wrote in a press release. “For the moderate and less experienced members of the cannabis community, we recommend that they enjoy our cocktails as they were professionally created for this event.”

A complete drinks menu for the evening has been released, but the exact ingredients remain a mystery. Mixologists will be on site serving up the cocktails and will be able to answer questions guests may have about the effects.

For those looking for a gullet full of THC-infused goodness, pick from the Diesel Sour, Cookies and Cream, Pineapple Express, Canna-colada, Pink Panther Margarita, or Couch Lock Collins.

For a much more low-key and mellow vibe, sip on the 416er Elixir, The Calm after the Storm, or the CBD Mojito. All are infused with CBD.

Tickets are on sale for $135 (plus tax), are all-inclusive, and will include two food items.
