Juice shots, also known as wellness shots, bombs, booster shots, immunity shots, and more have grown in popularity in the juicing community over the past two years. These small 2 – 4oz shots are intentionally made to pack a hard punch of antioxidants and nutrients – hence the name, wellness shot! If you aren’t already offering your own version of a wellness shot, juice shot, or juice bomb, here is your chance. They are the perfect impulse buy or add-on item for your customers. Plus, they are cost-effective compared to a standard 12 oz bottle of juice. These shots can be sold anywhere between $3 – $7 depending on the ingredients and make a great grab and go!

Fresh ginger root and ginger pulp have a long history of being used in alternative and traditional forms of medicine, along with lemons!
