Behind the Stick with Danny Kuehner of Madison on Park

Kudos to the folks over at Madison on Park, located in University Heights, for creating some epic cocktails. Bar manager Danny Kuehner created Madison's first cannabis-infused cocktail that contains Cannabidiol (CBD). The cool thing about this cocktail is that it doesn't have THC, which means it doesn't get you high. CBD oil has health benefits, it helps with anxiety and seizures. We caught up with Kuehner to chat about his tropical, citrus cocktail called Mr. Nice Guy.

Mr. Nice Guy

$18

1 oz Matcha Syrup

1 oz Lime Juice

1 oz Pineapple Juice

1 oz Coconut Milk

1.5 oz Mezcal

7 drops Cannabidiol Oil

Garnish: Hemp Leaf and CBD oil drops

How did you come up with the idea for Mr Nice Guy?

This cocktail is an homage to my great great great great grandfather who discovered the cannabis plant in 1923. Describe the taste.

Heavenly, Magical, Ecstasy What are some key benefits to CBD?

I'm not a Dr. but from my understanding it's sort of like the fountain of youth. If you were to drink just 1 Mr Nice Guy per day it would slow or stop the aging process, you would become more attractive, and if you so desired you would become extremely wealthy. What's the key component of this drink?

A mixture of CBD oil and love. What reactions are you expecting to get from customers when they try this cocktail for the first time?

I expect them to immediately get up on the bar or a table and start dancing. If you had to pair this cocktail with a dish, what would you pair it with?

In a perfect world I would pair it with a plate of "magical" brownies. If I was at Madison, I would pair it with our new vegan sausage ravioli. Yum!

Watch as Danny Kuehner crafts up his cannabis-infused cocktail, Mr. Nice Guy.

What kind of experience can guests get at Madison on Park?

Only the best freaking experience of their freaking lives.
