Warren Bobrow, @WarrenBobrow1, the Cocktail Whisperer, concocted this cannabis cocktail recipe called Nur’ó’c Mía. This cannabis recipe is found in his book, Cannabis Cocktails, Mocktails & Tonics.
Even if you’re not drinking it yourself, there’s something inherently refreshing about watching Vietnamese street vendors crush freshly cut sugarcane into brimming glasses of the aromatic juice known as nur’ó’c mía.
The juice’s sultry flavor is strangely reminiscent of Rhum Agricole from Martinique—and even of Brazil’s potent patron spirit, cachaça—just minus the alcohol.
Now you can make a medicated version at home.
Just top up sugarcane juice with a dose of your THC-Infused Condensed Milk: it’ll invigorate you right down to your toes.
Make your condensed milk with a Sativa strain, which promotes mental clarity and focus, such as Asian Fantasy.
Its spice- and grape-tinged aromatics complement both the sugarcane juice and the rich, sweet milk.

Add a colorful straw, and serve immediately.
Recipe for THC-Infused Condensed Milk
Westerners tend to reserve condensed milk for cooking, baking, or making confectionery, but there are plenty of other applications for it—many of them drinkable.
And you don’t have to stop there, either: go ahead and add a tablespoon or so to your favorite tea or coffee (hot or iced).
- 1 CAN (8 OUNCES, OR 235 ML) SWEETENED CONDENSED MILK
- 3-4 GRAMS DECARBED CANNABIS, PLACED IN A HEMP TEA BAG
Add the condensed milk and ground cannabis to a small saucepan.
Heat until just below boiling, about 165°F (74°C).
Turn down the heat to low, and cook for 1 hour to infuse the condensed milk with the cannabis.
Remove the teabag, squeezing out as much of the condensed milk as possible. Transfer the mixture to a heat-proof bowl.
The result will be very thick and concentrated. (That’s a good thing!)
Dilute it with fresh condensed milk until you’ve reached the desired consistency and volume.
Let cool completely and use in recipes that include medicated condensed milk.
Store in the fridge for 5 to 7 days.
