Terpenes, those distinctive compounds that give cannabis its unique flavour and scent, are front and centre in the two sparkling tonics made by House of Terpenes. There’s Limonene and Sparkling Tonic—bright and citrusy with notes of lemon, tangerine and thyme flavours. And there’s Myrcene and Sparkling Tonic—with tarragon, orange peel, clove and cinnamon complementing the earthiness of the botanicals. Each has a medium potency, with 5mg of THC and 5mg of CBD in the formulas. To enhance your beverage repertoire this season, Toronto bartender extraordinaire Evelyn Chick riffed off their flavour profiles gave us these three easy-to-make recipes. And if you’re new to drinking your cannabis, remember to err on the more conservative side of potency—the advice is to start low and sip slow.
