Chef Matt’s Spiked Mocktails With Dizzle

And by edibles — specifically the Dizzle Original Premium Potion Delta-8 gummies. According to Ganja Eats’ Chef Matt, who twisted open a jar of strawberry Dizzle gummies, sometimes spiking non-whiskies or virgin beverages with a little D8 gives the beverage a sweet tang.

Even mocktails need a little something extra. Chef Matt used blueberry Dizzle Delta-8 edibles as faux ice cubes, a chewy treat with fresh fruit and juices.

Meticulously, Chef Matt smashed the strawberries and blueberries. Mixing Amoretti’s raspberry lemonade beverage infusion with the fruit, he added two Dizzle 25-milligram blueberry gummies of Delta-8 to a daiquiri glass of club soda as if they were ice cubes.

If there’s anything to say about going non-alcohol with cocktails, the cool kids at VidCon Anaheim were onto something when they partied with Delta-8 gummies like Dizzle.
