This Holidays Discover the New Norm of Tequila and Cannabis

When tequila and cannabis come together to create the best herbal liqueur

Some things work better together: like chocolate and peanut butter, or tequila and cannabis. Lucky Stash’s blend is the result of a macerated formula with the best tequila, and a lucky touch: hemp, which comes from the Cannabis Sativa family. But who thought about this weird and yet interesting mix, and how that results in a weird and bold herbal liqueur? Let’s find out.

The harvest

Like every other invention, this one started with a plan, or, even better, with a recipe. To create Lucky Stash you need three main ingredients: Tequila Blanco, hemp, and a selection of different herbs. Next, there is a three-step process: first, we planted high-quality agave to produce premium tequila; then some botanical experts picked  the best herbs and macerate them until they had a perfect consistency. Finally, it’s time to blend the master formula with the tequila and add the “lucky touch”: hemp. Natural terpenes are the key to reaching the amazing Lucky Stash flavor and aroma, and one of the highest quality by-products that evokes the characteristics of that magnificent and emblematic weed.

What is this all about?

But, are we talking about tequila drink or herbal liquor? Strictly, Lucky Stash is a liqueur: the main difference between a liquor and a liqueur is that, while liquor has a strong flavor to it that is anything but sweet, liqueur, on the other hand, is sweet by nature. This term is used to describe these sweetened spirits that are made with different flavors and extracts, such as this one.

The lucky touch

Let’s talk about Lucky Stash’s original touch. Lots of people know how tequila tastes: it is a strong and yet delicious Mexican spirit. There is no big mystery here. But what about hemp? In botanical terms, hemp and marijuana are part of the same plant species. Nature doesn’t distinguish between the two, but we do. Hemp is cannabis that contains 0.3 percent or less THC content by dry weight. THC, short for tetrahydrocannabinol, is the chemical in cannabis that makes people feel stoned. Because hemp contains so little THC, it can’t make you feel that way. So, the answer to the big question is: Lucky Stash is a key driver to create memorable experiences through great cocktails, music, friendship, and uniqueness above all, but not necessarily by getting you high. 

The secret plan to this outstanding herbal liqueur

All processes, blends, and ingredients behind Lucky Stash have a main objective: encourage the bold ones to “keep it weird”. Especially during Holiday Season, the perfect moment to try something new. Imagine yourself arriving at a party or family reunion with a bottle of Lucky Stash, a weird skull trophy-like sculpture full of a green potion that could turn festivities more fun and green in an Austinite way.

You can still roll it, but now you can mix it.

Outstanding Outdoor Activities in Austin During the Pandemic

Spring is here and after over a year of quarantining due to the pandemic, we’re all going a bit stir crazy. Not to worry, as there are plenty of outstanding outdoors activities in Austin that you can enjoy while social distancing.

Go On An Interactive Scavenger Hunt

Scavenger hunts are perfect day dates, family activities, or group activities with friends. While the hunt is created by an excursion company, you take the tour solo, using your smartphone and it’s GPS as your interactive guide. You receive digital hints and clues when you make it to each of the destinations along the way. All you need is a smartphone and at least 2 people. This is an outstanding activity even if you have lived in Austin your entire life; you are likely to learn a few fun facts about our city.

Prices for this interactive scavenger hunt begin at $30 for the mini hunt or $45 for the full hunt for up to 5 people. Discounted pricing is available for groups of more than 5 people, military members, schools, and non-profits. Choose from a 3-hour scavenger hunt in Austin Trails or a 2-hour scavenger hunt in Downtown Austin.

Gourmet Picnic

Fresh air and a change of scenery can make a world of difference, so head to your favorite Austin park for a picnic. Instead of just eating a usual lunch or dinner outdoors, pack a gourmet picnic. You can pick up or order-in gourmet meats and cheeses from your favorite deli, make a few elevated food items, or order takeout from your favorite restaurant. Don’t forget wine or your Lucky Stash hemp-infused tequila!

Make a day of it, by bringing something to read, a portable speaker to play music, a game, or physical activity such as flying a kite, frisbee, or other sports gear. If you enjoy nature, check out what else the park has to offer such as hiking or cycling trails or water excursions which we cover below.

Water Excursions

Now that the weather is warming up a bit, consider a water excursion. Not to worry if you don’t have your own boat or equipment as there are countless rental options. While communal, rental companies are disinfecting their equipment between guests. Consider:

Renting a canoe, stand-up paddleboard, rowboat, donut boat, kayak, and more from any of these water excursion companies. Prices vary.

If you like to fish, head to any of these locations. Remember, if you are 17 years or older, you’ll need to get a fishing license first. It’s $30 to $40 depending on whether you are salt or freshwater fishing, and $12 for seniors.

Rent a boat or jet ski on lakes in and around Austin from any of these rental locations. The cost averages around $90 per hour.

Go swimming at any of these natural waterways, either just to go swimming or for a full day outside in nature.

Stargaze

Tired of binge-watching TV in the evenings? Stars shine bright in the Texas sky, so head to one of these locations in and around Austin when the sun goes down to stargaze. Consider borrowing or buying a beginner telescope to improve the view, which can be found for as low as $70 online. Be sure to wear layers and bring a blanket as the night air is chilly.

Here’s to getting back out there and enjoying our magnificent city!
