Orange Julius CBD Cocktails / Mocktails

20mg CBD per serving
Serves 4

This DIY version of the classic mall treat is perfect for Easter brunch. Here, Nicole Maione, General Manager for Caliper Foods, gives it an adult upgrade with vodka (optional), and a little more calm with Caliper. It’s easy to double or halve the recipe, too. Adapted from a recipe by Betsy Carter and Andrew Pollock at Tasty.co.

Ingredients

1 medium orange

½ cup sugar, divided

1½ cups ice

2 cups orange juice

½ cup vodka (use water or any fruit juice, for mocktails)

1 cup milk (dairy or plant-based)

4 (20mg) packets Caliper CBD dissolvable powder

½ teaspoon vanilla extract

Instructions

To rim the glasses:

  1. Zest half of the orange, and cut the remaining half into 4 wedges to garnish.
  2. Combine ¼ cup of the sugar and the orange zest in a small bowl.
  3. Dip the rims of 4 tall glasses into a little water to moisten them, then dip into the sugar mixture to coat.
  4. Set aside while you make the drinks.

To make the cocktails/mocktails:

  1. In a blender, combine the ice, orange juice, milk, vodka or water/juice, the remaining ¼ cup sugar, the Caliper, and vanilla.
  2. Blend until smooth and creamy.
  3. Pour into the glasses, garnish each with an orange wedge, and drink up!
