Re: Vote for your favorite energy drink

And then there's the notorious Four Loko line of alcoholic energy drinks, and the less said about those yucky train wrecks the better.

An energy beverage that's 12, 16 or 24-proof? You do the math.

For energy? Redline, which is like a giant 5-hour energy with energy drink stuff added in. It burns a little when you drink it and you're supposed to drink half the bottle and then wait a few hours to drink the rest.

For taste, either Redbull or the new white-can sugar free Monster. Has a very mild taste, kind of a light grapefruit or blood orange sort of flavor. Not too sweet, not too harsh. . . just right. It is called Ultra Zero or something like that.

5-Hour Energy actually does a pretty good job. It's mostly caffeine and B-vitamins. Helps you stay alert without feeling like you just drank a big can of sugar and chemicals.
Well that encouraging to know. How often do you drink them?

I'm too lazy to do the math. How many cans would it take to put health or life at risk?

Re: Vote for your favorite energy drink

Perhaps those folks living in other countries could tell us about energy drinks that are sold in their countries. I am sure that the Aussie, British, Kiwis and others have energy drinks that we have not heard of.

Um...once a year?

Though if you're interested in a cocktail, this recipe was given to me by a concession worker from the circus:

It's Mother-Fuckin' Business Time
Over ice, pour 1 container of 5-Hour Energy (flavor of your choice)
1 shot of vodka
Top with Sprite

For those times when you're too sleepy to go out, but you still want to drink.

I have never needed Energy drinks to stay awake, so I don;t drink them.

I did drink a bunch of Red Bulls when I was on acid about 20 years ago, made the visuals go wheeeeeeee!

I haven't bothered to crunch those kinds of numbers myself to be frank, but I imagine it can't take too many of an energy drink that strong and containing that much alcohol to do something negative to the user.

Here's a HuffPost article on a teenager dying after drinking some of the stuff along with a couple of other incidents.

Already done, I placed a link to the list of energy drinks on wikipedia.

Re: Vote for your favorite energy drink

I've known people who drink energy beverages constantly. That kind of continual stimulation can't be good for their health at all, but they've claimed its been a positive thing for them.

To each their own, and all the best. But I wouldn't want to be one of the people pounding their nervous systems with all those sketchy ingredients on a daily basis.
