Hi All, just looking for some input on a weed drink plan.
I decarbed about 60g of trim, and put it in a jar with about 500ml of 95% ethanol (everclear/grain alcohol), and put it in the freezer, and shook for a while. Strained out the weed, and kept the muddy green liquid.
I'm taking this extract and infusing it with lemon peel for a while. I'll then take out the peels, strain, and then add some simple syrup ( water and sugar) to bring down the abv, and make it taste better.
That will make a weed infused limoncello.
Any thoughts, ideas...
@bkr made a raspberry liqueur/tincture before Christmas. To be honest I just couldn't disguise that weedy taste, it was pretty vile tbh. Hope your limoncello turns out better than my effort ☹️
Time to grow old disgracefully.
Strained out the weed, and kept the muddy green liquid
an extra step might help reduce that green muddiness in the future. After decarbing, let the soak the buds in water to remove some of the chlorophyll. The THC isn't water soluble and should not be affected but the green will leach out of the buds. Change the water as needed, do it as many times as you need to to achieve results, and air dry the weed before adding to the alcohol. It's more work but a more palatable product is the result.

Thanks Monkey. Will do next time. I just tried a squirt with the lemon peel in it for a few hours, I plan on leaving it in there for a few days. It tastes very lemony, which cuts the weed taste. When I add the simple syrup, it will be even better.
It just looks like muddy water.
Next time, rinse after decarb.
I'll probably strain it through a coffee filter to see if that clears it up.
