host Matt Zimbric's latest adventure leads him to an experimental cannabis cocktail party in Los Angeles. Matt meets with leading mixologist Daniel K. Nelson of
The Black Cat
to learn the basics and some new tricks of the trade when it comes to making cocktails with cannabis.
After jumping into a 1972 Cadillac hearse party limo (as one does in LA), they hit up Aaron Justis of Buds & Roses to research, shop and sample the perfect bouquet of ganja goods—may we recommend Silverback Grape Ape and Oregon Silver?—to infuse into their cocktails and food. On the menu: California fresh herb salad and sous-vide steak with cannabis compound butter.
