Glitter and Cannabis Make These Appetizers Show Stoppers

A few months ago, I enjoyed a fabulous cocktail at a pop-up in Vegas. It was a Spicy Rose Paloma, and it was sensational — and beautiful. Edible glitter made this dream drink just stunning, and fun.

Edible glitter is made from sugar and cornstarch —harmless and firey. Do try this at home. A little smoke, a little spice, and a tart and sweet finish that almost made me drink too much!

Upon my return, I set out to make a cannabis infused version. It offers most of the same great flavors, a different path to my kind of place. I’ve infused the drink with 5mg of THC distillate.

That’s 2.5mg THC per drink, but you can use the infusion method you prefer. Keep the potency low, unless you know you are a high-potency person. When it comes to cannabis, and alcohol, less is more. Don’t go overboard, it’s no fun at all. 

Serves 2

What You’ll Need: 

  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • Edible glitter, any colors (divide)
  • 1 tablespoon honey or agave
  • 1/2 cup pink grapefruit juice
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
  • 1 tablespoon rose syrup
  • 2 dashes smoky bitters
  • 1 tablespoon honey or agave
  • 5 mg THC, your preferred method
  • Pinch cayenne
  • 4 ounces grapefruit soda, cold



  1. Combine the sugar with your choice of glitter. Drizzle the honey on a small plate. Run the rim of the glasses in the sweetener, then run the rim through the glitter. 
  2. In a mixing glass, combine the juices, syrup, bitters, one tablespoon honey or agave, distillate, and a pinch of cayenne. Chill for 1 hour.
  3. When you are ready to pour, add the grapefruit soda, stir, sprinkle with glitter, and enjoy.
  4. So pretty.
