420 comes once a year, or maybe twice a day, depending on how you look at it. Everyone can enjoy the Liquid Marijuana drink, even if they don’t have a cannabis card. So put down the bong for just a few minutes, at least long enough to mix some Liquid Marijuana for some alcoholic refreshment. Who says you can’t have the best of both worlds?
- ½ oz spiced rum
- ½ oz coconut rum
- ½ oz Midori
- ½ oz blue curacao
- Splash sweet and sour mix
- 1–2 oz pineapple juice
Place all ingredients except the pineapple juice in a cocktail shaker with ice. Shake and strain into a short glass with ice. Top with pineapple juice. Drink up and enjoy!
The Liquid Marijuana drink recipe is easy to execute, even while blazed. It shouldn’t take you more than two minutes to throw this green monster together. You don’t have to wait until 420 to enjoy the Liquid Marijuana. I think this cocktail has lots of appeal on different levels. It tastes excellent, with a lot of tropical tones. The rum makes this drink effective as an intoxicant. Lastly, the Liquid Marijuana is a really green drink, adding to its mystique.
Where Did the Term 420 Come From?
Like all movements that travel the globe, 420 began very small, with a group of teenagers from San Rafael High. In 1971, a group of about a dozen kids used to hang out by a certain wall at high school, and so they dubbed themselves, “The Waldos”. They would meet every day at 4:20 by the statue of Louis Pasteur, and head out to find an unattended crop they heard was over by Point Reyes. Along the way, they would blaze up. Of course, they never found the hidden crop, but they had a new secret code that they could use around their parents and adults.
As time went on, one of the Waldos older brothers got to know one of the members of the Grateful Dead. Although none of the surviving members of the Dead remember them using the term “420”, it must have been referenced a few times, because soon the terminology spread to the Deadheads. By the early 1990s, 420 had been spread by the magazine High Times, and in 1998, the magazine did an article on the origins of 420, to set all the urban legends straight. Today, 420 is universally known by potheads and the mainstream alike, and 4:20 is accepted as the time to pull out the bong. Several cities have 420 festivals on April 20th every year. Amazing how something that starts so small can sometimes become part of our culture purely by accident.
Hey! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any trouble with hackers?
My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up losing many months of
hard work due to no back up. Do you have any solutions to stop hackers?
Some things that I follow are always update WordPress as soon as it updates. I have some other secret sauce things I follow. Basically, even if people can hack the site, there’s not much that they can do to harm it, outside of me being careless. Search around for some best practices for maintaining security, or email me personally.
