    Supporting the Non-Alc Movement: Pushing Reset on How We Drink

    Written on October 17, 2022

    The season of celebrations is just kicking off! From October through February the months are filled with opportunities to celebrate and socialize. However, American culture ties celebrations and social gatherings to alcohol in a way that sometimes feels… unhealthy. Halloween party? Hard cider. Thanksgiving? House wine. Christmas? Hot Toddies. Eggnog. Mulled wine. New Year’s Eve? Champagne. Tuesday? Nightcap. Wednesday? Nightcap. The list goes on and on. But for every celebration with spiked bevs comes the opportunity for hangovers, embarrassing behavior, dangerous encounters, headaches, days of recovery, and the enablement of addictions. If you’re thinking, “Woah… that turned dark quick,” yes, it did. It’s dangerous to ignore the realities of how alcohol can impact our lives. For some, reducing alcohol intake is less serious — reducing inflammation or saving a few bucks — but for many others, it can be life and death. We’re all about supporting change for the better, so we’re embracing the non-alc movement with delicious CBD mocktails you can enjoy this season of celebration.

    Re-thinking how we celebrate

    We’ve been thinking… Does socializing always have to mean wine time? As much as we love a rich glass of cab or a smooth pinot noir, we’re feeling burnt out on the practice. It’s time to re-think how we celebrate. Maybe your beverage can support your body instead of harming it. By replacing alcohol in your beverages with CBD instead, you support your endocannabinoid system and avoid the inflammatory triggers of alcohol.

    Swap your alcoholic nightcap for a CBD nightcap

    “Let’s just have one last drink”… Oh the regret. We’re guilty of the “one more” trap, too. Next time you hear this, try a CBD mocktail instead. Not only are you avoiding the drink that will certainly put you over the edge from buzzed to blitzed, but you’ll support your body in the process of returning to homeostasis. Skip the “last drink” and head home to make a CBD nightcap instead (or take your CBD on the go and add it to a club soda with lime). “Morning you” will thank “last night you”.

    Maybe you’re not a big social drinker, but you’ve gotten into the habit of a nightcap, and it’s starting to impact your health and sleep. Try switching your drink of choice to one of the many CBD mocktails that have the same flavors but none of the downfalls of alcohol.

    Try these non-alc options at your next event

    CBD-infused Mulled Cider

      • 2 quarts of apple cider
      • 6 allspice berries
      • 6 whole cloves
      • 6 cinnamon sticks
      • 1 orange, thinly sliced
      • Hapsy’s Daily Drop Pure Plant
      • Bourbon (optional)

    Recipe: Place the first four ingredients and 4 of the slices of orange into a saucepan, heating over medium heat until you see a boil form. Remove from heat and let it steep for about 5 minutes. While the cider is steeping, take 6 mugs out. Drop a full dropper of Hapsy’s Pure Plant Daily Drop into the bottom of each mug. Pour cider into mugs, evenly divided. Garnish with an orange slice.

    CBD-Infused Apple Ginger Fizz

      • 3 oz still apple cider
      • 1 oz freshly squeezed lime juice
      • 6 mint leaves
      • 1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
      • Pinch powdered cinnamon
      • 3 oz ginger ale
      • 1 Dropper of Hapsy Daily Drop

    Recipe: Place apple cider, lime juice, cinnamon, apple cider vinegar, Hapsy Daily Drop, and a few ice cubes into a cocktail shaker or container with a tight lid. Clap the mint together in your hands to release the scent or muddle lightly, and add to the shaker. Shake for about 20-30 seconds. Pour into an ice-filled glass and top with ginger ale. Stir gently, garnish with mint, dried citrus, or a cinnamon stick, and serve. Recipe adapted from Mindful Mocktails.

    Apple Cider Mocktini

    Cinnamon-Ginger Simple Syrup:

      • 1 cup sugar
      • 1 cup water
      • 2 cinnamon sticks
      • 1-2 inches ginger root, peeled and thinly sliced

    For One Mocktail:

      • 2 tablespoons cinnamon-ginger simple syrup, chilled
      • 1 cup apple cider, chilled
      • 1 Dropper Hapsy Daily Drop
      • Ice for mixing
      • Cinnamon sugar for rimming the glass
      • Apple slice or cinnamon stick to garnish (optional)

    Recipe for the Simple Syrup: Mix sugar, water, cinnamon sticks, and sliced ginger root in a small saucepan over medium heat. Heat until sugar is dissolved. Let cool completely. When cool, strain to remove ginger and cinnamon sticks.

    Recipe for the Mocktail: Pour cinnamon sugar into a shallow bowl or plate. Prepare the martini glass by wetting the rim with apple cider and then dipping it in cinnamon sugar. Add ice to the martini shaker. Pour in the cider, Hapsy Daily Drop, and simple syrup. Shake for 10 to 15 seconds. Pour into prepared glass. Garnish with an apple slice or cinnamon stick.
