The Hemp Highball is an original cocktail from Humboldt Distillery, featuring their unique hemp-infused vodka, Humboldt's Finest. It's a relatively simple recipe, made with jasmine simple syrup, fresh lemon juice, and soda water, giving it a light, floral character that's perfect for cooling down on a hot day.

Though this recipe technically includes cannabis, it doesn't contain any THC, and therefore isn't psychoactive. It's also legal in all 50 states, though, so it's a great way to toast 4/20 if you can't get your hands on a real cannabis cocktail.

Hemp Highball Ingredients

1.5 oz Humboldt's Finest Hemp-Infused Vodka
1 oz jasmine simple syrup
0.5 oz fresh lemon juice
Soda water
2 cucumber slices
