From Blue Wines to Green ones, is that what innovation it’s about?

 TAGS:undefined

 

While tradition is a feature of great importance wine lovers, so is innovation. That is why day to day the youngest cellars work to develop new recipes and formulas capable of surprising the most expert palates; not only for its delicious taste, but also for its color. A year ago we talked about the birth of Gïk Live, the first blue wine in the world created by young entrepreneurs in the Basque Country, and now it’s time to talk about green wine: a drink that combines the intoxicating effects of alcohol and cannabis.

The real name of this brew is Canna Vine, and it consists of a marijuana distilled wine that is produced in California (United States), the only place in the world where its sale is currently allowed. The consumption of this drink is regulated, limiting its sales exclusively for therapeutic use under medical prescription.

The current fame of green wine is due to celebrities such as singer Melissa Etheridge or TV presenter Chelsea Handler, who have publicly admitted that they consume it habitually since they started to undergo their respective chemotherapy treatments. In fact, this drink is so adapted to their lifestyles that they no longer consider it as another medicine of their treatment but as one more element of their daily diet; Etheridge confessed in an interview that she even serves it for dinner.

It is estimated that in the future it will be freely marketed, where permitted by law, in the rest of the world. However, its high price – between $ 120 and $ 400 per half bottle – represents a restriction for the vast majority of pockets, so it’s considered as an exclusive drink. Even so, the supply of green wine produced in California grows day by day through new specialized wineries that make their way between medicinal growers and those veteran wineries that made the wines of this region famous.

Cannabis absinthe, the new fashion drink

 TAGS:Ernest Hemingway, Oscar Wilde and Pablo Ruiz Picasso have many things in common, besides being a fundamental part of the latest Woody Allen film “Midnight in Paris” script, which won an Oscar for its originality. It is said that the 3 of them shared a passion for the green devil which made its way inside their minds leaving them momentarily blank.

Absinthe has been banned and prohibited in many circles and countries. Today is not yet permitted in some states of USA and yet the demand does not stop and indeed evolves, for example in its cannabis variety, which blends them both together in the same bottle. What an explosive cocktail.

Absinthe with cannabis has become a fashion drink, though it has lost the romance from its original ritual it has gained connotations while taking the risk of associating with the most popular illicit substance in the world, as the UN defines this opioid.

Decades ago, absinthe was drunk in crystal glass and was accompanied by a silver little spoon with holes, in which a sugar cube was deposited on. The sweet block vanished slowly in full view of everyone while the water fell quietly on it. At the same time, as if by magic, the greenish fluid settled at the bottom of the glass was becoming white, pure alchemy.

Today absinthe is order in shot glasses, the perfect start for a night out with a wild side. Rodnik Cannabis Absinthe emerges at dusk as the coolest alternative for those avoiding conventionality.

If you have already tried Absinthe Pernod or Absinth Philippe Lasala and you are hooked on the flavor and excitement, you can go into another dimension in more depth and experiment with the mixture of absinthe and cannabis. It has nothing to do with a Hapsburg Gold Label or a network, this new version is even closer to a narcotic result that keeps the aromatic character, but that adds properties and promises to enhance the creative ability of those who manage it.

Its potential as an appetizer or as part of a mid-afternoon cocktail combined with orange with almond syrup, with curaçao, vermouth, baileys, whiskey or champagne should not be ruled out. It can also go with dishes such as pasta, steak or crab. This beverage matching is subject to imagination, so possibilities are endless and for sure very surprising. It is just about trying and let oneself go.
