Shots, shots, shots!

No, this isn't a frat party. We're talking shots full of non-alcoholic spicy ginger juice, apple cider vinegar and more. In addition to fermented beverages, sparkling waters, and RTD coffee and tea, single-use wellness shots are gaining popularity. Designed to be consumed in one sitting (or in one gulp), these powerful mini-bottles feature efficacious doses of adaptogenic herbs, ayurvedic ingredients (think turmeric, black pepper and ginger), detoxifying activated charcoal, lemon and powerful zings of flavor.

Here are a few notable options that are new or soon-to-be on store shelves. They give the original shot, 5-Hour Energy, a run for its money.
