Cannabis Cocktail Recipe: Potato Head Blues

You know those mornings when getting out of bed is as foreign an idea as wearing a Speedo in January? It’s so much warmer under the blankets, so you hit the snooze button a few times—and before you know it, you’ve overslept. (Again.) Well, think of this drink as a potable fleece blanket. It’s a mezcal-spiked cup of joe that’s been given physic in the form of medicated agave syrup. If I were you, I’d do my medicating with a cannabis tincture that’s been made with a sophisticated Indica strain called White Rhino. Its terpenes mimic the aromas of scorched earth and charred firewood, followed by bursts of saline, wet stones, and glycerin, and they’re best buddies with both smoky, lush mezcal and strong coffee.
Servings: 1
Author: Cheri Sicard


  • 1 teaspoon instant espresso powder
  • 6 ounces hot water or to taste
  • 1 ounces mezcal high quality
  • 1/2 ounces cannabis infused agave syrup infused with no more than 10ml of your favorite cannabis tincture


  • Preheat a mug by filling it with boiling water and setting it aside for a couple minutes, then pour out the water.
  • Add the espresso powder, and top with fresh hot water to taste. Add the mezcal to “correct” the coffee, then mix in the medicated agave syrup.
  • Serve immediately.
