Sparkling CBD Jell-O Shots for Sober September
Ditching the booze doesn’t mean ditching the fun
For those of you who chose to are giving up alcohol for the month, for the day, or for life – High Peaks is here to support your goals. With our CBD seltzer water selection, I’m working on weekly mocktail recipes to keep you walking the straight and narrow at least until October hits. Click here for the first mocktail of Sober September, featuring our Watermelon Mint CBD Seltzer Water!
Here is my take on a sparkling Jell-O ‘shot’ that’s jam packed with flavor and healthy plant compounds that will make your tastebuds and your insides smile.
You will need:
- 3 oz of lemon-flavored Jell-O
- ½ cup filtered water
- 1 can (12 oz) High Peaks Black Cherry CBD Seltzer Water
- Maraschino Cherries
- Whipped Cream
Boil the ½ cup of filtered water and add it to a bowl of the lemon Jell-O sugar, whisking until the sugar is dissolved.
Add the whole can of High Peaks Black Cherry CBD Seltzer and stir gently. This will foam, don’t be alarmed!
You can pour your mixture into a small bowl or casserole dish as you would regular Jell-O and portion the shots out later, or you can pour this into the shot glasses now, it’s up to you!
Allow to set in the fridge until firm, about four hours. Unlike regular Jell-O, you’re going to have fun little bubbles that form and firm up on top, like Jell-O but bedazzled!
Garnish with whipped cream and a Maraschino Cherry! Because why not? (Keep in mind that if you poured these straight into the shot glass, you will have to use your finger or a tool to free the Jell-O from the sides of the glass before shooting.)
These tasty treats will be bright and light, perfect to enjoy as an after dinner non-alcoholic aperitif, scratching that Limoncello itch! The black cherry flavor of the seltzer pops against the lemony sweetness of the Jell-O and is accentuated with the prelude of the Maraschino Cherry. Not too shabby for a non-alcoholic shot, if I do say so myself!
So get after Sober September – we got your back with more recipes!
