Recipe: ‘The Dude’ is a cannabis-infused, Frappé-flavoured, DIY beverage

August 26, 2021

Cannabis and coffee—for many, it’s a match made in heaven. If that sounds like you, then this delicious spin on cannabis-infused iced coffee is just the thing.

Fuse, a brand under Emerald Health Therapeutics, partnered up with Andrew Freedman, the Cannabis Sommelier himself, to create drink recipes to celebrate the launch of their 10 mg nano shots.

When asked the inspiration behind The Dude, Freedman tells Leafly, “Immediately after my first sip of the frappé nano shot, The Big Lebowski came to mind. I took a non-alcoholic spin on a White Russian, with a little hometown inspiration from ‘The Shaft,’ which is a Calgary favourite.”

“In the true spirit of the inspiration of this cocktail, you can stir it with your finger. The Dude abides.”

Fuse nano shots are rolling out across Canada, and hope to be in all provinces in the near future. Currently, flavours are available in British Columbia, Manitoba, and Alberta.
