What Is a Liquid Marijuana Cocktail?
Whenever I’ve had this drink, everyone around me wants to know what’s in it. It looks so appealing, and it always strikes their curiosity. Then, once they have a sip, they love it!
The Liquid Marijuana is a delicious fruity cocktail that, contrary to its name, does not actually contain any marijuana. It’s the green color and the optional cannabis-shaped pineapple wedge garnish that gives it its tongue-in-cheek name.
When you order this drink at a restaurant or bar, it’s always hit or miss as to whether the bartender has even heard of it—let alone know how to make it—so it’s best to be prepared with the knowledge of how it’s made.
A Word of Caution
Depending on your personal tolerance level for alcohol, you might want to err on the side of caution if you’re away from home or if you don’t have a reliable means of transportation back to someplace safe. This drink can cause different reactions in people who are more sensitive to alcohol.
I say this from experience. After about two of these, I’m feeling pretty good and probably shouldn’t be allowed to drive. This drink contains a mix of several strong liquors, so please, keep that in mind when consuming it.
Please drink responsibly.
- 1/2 oz Malibu or coconut rum
- 1/2 oz Midori or watermelon liqueur (make sure it’s green)
- 1/2 oz Blue Curacao liqueur
- 1/2 oz Captain Morgan or spiced rum
- 3 oz pineapple juice
- Splash Sprite or lemon-lime soda
- Pineapple wedge and/or cherry (optional, for garnish)
- Pour all ingredients into a shaker, or even directly into drinking glass.
- Mix or shake, and serve.
- Optional garnishes: pineapple and/or maraschino cherry.
Some other options could be to use vodka instead of rum or orange juice instead of pineapple. Or if you have a creative mind and a variety of liqueurs, there’s nothing stopping you from creating your own masterpiece! But if you want it to be some derivative of the Liquid Marijuana, you might want to keep it at least green in color.

I’m sure if you get creative you could work some in there! Maybe soak some pineapple in oil or something and use it as a garnish 🙂

It’s a shame not to put some THC in that drink, but I’ll bet a person or two will try! The color certainly matches the name, though. Love to try it some day.
This drink is always a winner with anyone who has tried it and likes fruity drinks. Disclaimer: It does NOT contain any marijuana.
