The fourth of July is a festive American holiday, typically celebrated with burgers, hot dogs, corn on the cob, watermelon, apple pie and alcoholic beverages. Since the holiday falls on a Thursday, it may be a little more difficult to get the full Independence Day experience. This is especially true for those who have to be at work the next morning. In honor of the mid-week festivities, the Receptra Team (all of whom will be at work on July 5th) wanted to share a non-alcoholic cocktail that may still help to take the edge off. Introducing Receptra’s 4th of July Cranberry Cooler CBD Cocktail!
- 1.5 liters of Cranberry Juice
- 1.5 Cup of fresh Blueberries
- 1.5 Cup of Strawberries
- 6 droppers of Receptra Prime CBD Oil
- 3- 4 cups Ice
Cranberry juice has a number of health benefits. It is rich in vitamin C and antioxidants and is known to aid in urinary tract infections, respiratory disorders, kidney stones, heart disease and other health issues. It can also help brighten complexion and stabilize glucose levels. If the taste of 100% cranberry juice is a little too tart for your tastebuds, cran-apple is also a great option.
These little berries may be small but they are packed with nutrients. The flavonoids that give colorful fruits like blueberries their identifiable hue also contain strong antioxidant properties, which help to reduce inflammation and minimize free radicals in the body. Blueberries are known to aid in cognitive function and are jam-packed with vitamin C and fiber.
This colorful fruit shares a lot in common with blueberries. They are also a sodium-free, cholesterol-free, fat-free, low-calorie food. Strawberries are a great source of manganese and potassium and one of the top 20 most powerful antioxidant fruits out there. Luckily, they are also delicious and grow well during the summer.
Receptra CBD Oil
This is the key ingredient for the relaxing qualities of this 4th of July Cranberry Cooler CBD Cocktail. The antioxidant properties of CBD make a perfect addition to this berry blend of antioxidant fruits. Not to mention that the fresh berry taste of Receptra CBD complements the flavors in this drink. CBD oil is not psychoactive, so you will not get high from this summer cocktail. The relaxed feeling you may notice comes from the restoration of balance (homeostasis) in the body.
What would a summer drink be without ice? No explanation needed.
