When you feel a hint of a cold, instead of reaching for the OJ, would you do a shot of horseradish, apple cider vinegar, chili peppers, and turmeric? The spicy ingredients are all in Juice Generation‘s new, aptly named Hot As Hell shot (along with orange, lemon, garlic, onions, and habanero pepper).

And if you prefer something a bit more, er, soothing, you can now order Holy Water, made with pineapple, coconut water, holy basil, and blue majik (an extract of spirulina sometimes called by its parent brand, E3 Live).

Both of-the-moment beverages are in limited supply, so if you spot one of them on the menu at a location near you, it’s probably wise to snatch it up.

Here’s what to expect from both new editions, including the health benefits—and how they taste.

Hot as Hell

Ingredients: Apple cider vinegar, orange, lemon, horseradish, garlic, onions, turmeric, habanero

Health benefits: Celebs like Miranda Kerr and Megan Fox have been knocking back apple cider vinegar shots for years because of its detoxing and skin clearing benefits. It’s been a longtime fave ingredient in the wellness world since it is credited with everything from curing constipation, easing acid reflux, and clearing up sinus infections.

Combining its effects with turmeric, garlic, onions, and habanero really ups the anti-inflammatory quotient. Turmeric in particular is known as a strong inflammation fighter, and bonus: it can help you get a good night’s sleep.

You’d think that would be enough of a kick, so why the horseradish? It’s another reputed immune booster and ingredient that’s said to keep digestion on track. And it’s especially good for women since it has zinc and magnesium—which is depleted with your monthly cycle. Lastly, the hint of lemon and orange add a bit of vitamin C—and play off the spicy kick.

Taste: The apple cider vinegar is definitely the predominant flavor in this shot, but the horseradish, habanero, and turmeric are easily detected, too. As for that orange and lemon? It’s totally overpowered. At first, the taste is startling, but the after-effect will make you breathe bigger and deeper. Suffering from summer allergies? You won’t be anymore.

Holy Water

Ingredients: Pineapple, coconut water, tulsi (holy basil), blue majik

Health benefits: The star ingredient here is the blue majik, which is extracted from spirulina, a water plant with a long list of vitamins and minerals. The biggies? Vitamin B, vitamin E, zinc, magnesium, iron, and selenium. And like the coconut water also inside the bottle, it delivers on the antioxidant front too.

If you aren’t familiar with holy basil, it’s known as a great natural remedy for stress (so plan on sipping this juice at your desk) and it can also calm a queasy stomach. The pineapple is another reputed tummy tamer—it contains bromelain, an enzyme that helps with digestion.

There’s one big caveat to all these health benefits, though. The pineapple also makes this juice high in sugar—there’s 24 grams packed inside, which is one gram less than the World Health Organization recommends for the entire day.

Taste: Don’t be scared off by the blue color—Holy Water literally tastes like pineapple and coconut water. That holy basil and blue majik that’s stealing the ingredient spotlight? You can’t even really taste it.

And we’ve got more smoothie intel: Like the $20 smoothie (!) that this Well+Good editor says is totally worth it. Prefer coffee in the morning? Here’s why you can feel extra good about drinking it
