On this week's episode, writer, Jason Horn and I discuss how cannabis is infiltrating the booze industry, and whether or not this is one of The Booze World’s Worst Ideas! In the second half of the podcast, we interview Abe Stevens, founder and distiller of Humboldt Distillery, found in Humboldt County in northern California, where some of the best marijuana crops in the world grow. Four years ago he launched 'Humboldt’s Finest', a cannabis infused vodka. They were one of the first spirits brands to dip their toes in the cannabis industry and his efforts have recently payed off.

This week's cocktail recipe was created after I took the bottle of Humboldt's Finest Vodka home and tinkered with a martini recipe: Martini Sativa 3 oz Humboldt’s Finest 1/2 oz Dry Vermouth 1/2 oz Olive Brine Stir all ingredients over ice. Strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Garnish with green olives.
