Infused Oil Ingredients
Begin by lightly grinding your fresh cannabis flower. Next, gently grate your ginger over a small container. Place the ground cannabis and ginger into the herb pod. Add the olive oil to the chamber. For best results, set the temperature to 160-175 degrees for 2-2.5 hours. Once finished, let the oil cool in a dark jar before adding to your cocktail.

Ginger Twist Directions:
Start by creating your ginger syrup. In a small pot, combine water, sugar, and sliced ginger. Bring to a boil until sugar completely dissolves. Remove from heat. Cover with lid and let ginger steep for 15-20 minutes. Strain ginger pieces. Chill in fridge until ready to use.
In a tall glass, muddle mint leaves with the ginger syrup. Add gin, lime juice, ginger beer, and a couple dashes of lime bitters. Stir together. Add ice, and infused oil. We suggest 2-3 drops, however; you can customize your experience by choosing your dosage. Garnish with additional mint leaves.
