Indulge in the delightful combination of cannabis-infused tinctures and the classic flavors of a margarita with our Marijuana Margaritas recipe. These refreshing drinks are perfect for those seeking a unique twist on a beloved cocktail. By incorporating marijuana tinctures, also known as "golden or green dragon," you can elevate your margarita experience to new heights. Tinctures provide an alcohol-based cannabis extract, making them an excellent way to infuse marijuana into your beverages. So, let's shake things up and embark on this exciting culinary journey!


  • 2 ounces tequila
  • 1 ounce orange liqueur (such as triple sec or Cointreau)
  • 1 ounce freshly squeezed lime juice
  • 1-2 droppers of marijuana tincture (adjust based on desired potency)
  • Ice cubes
  • Lime wedges, for garnish
  • Kosher salt, for rimming the glass (optional)

Going Step by Step

  1. Rim the glass: If desired, rub a lime wedge around the rim of a glass and dip it into kosher salt to create a salt rim. Set aside.
  2. Mix the ingredients: In a cocktail shaker, combine the tequila, orange liqueur, lime juice, and marijuana tincture. Add a handful of ice cubes and shake vigorously for about 30 seconds to chill the mixture.
  3. Strain and serve: Strain the margarita mixture into the prepared glass filled with ice cubes. Squeeze a lime wedge into the drink for an extra burst of citrus flavor. Garnish the rim with a lime wedge.
  4. Give it a try and enjoy!


  • Start with a low dosage of marijuana tincture and gradually increase if desired.
  • Remember, the potency varies depending on the tincture’s strength.
  • Listen to your body and allow ample time for the effects to kick in before consuming more.
  • Refrain from driving or operating machinery after consuming marijuana-infused drinks.
  • Always consume responsibly and in accordance with local laws and regulations.

We are sure you are a perfect cook! Nonetheless, do remember to pay attention to the amount of Marijuana Margaritas you consume: it should always be modified based on the strength of your product and the potency you desire. Dosing homemade edibles can be tricky, so it is strongly recommended to start with one portion of a serving. After one or two hours, listen to your body and decide whether to consume more. It is not recommended to drive or operate any machinery when taking edibles. Use responsibly!
