Title: ITT, I review alcoholic energy drinks for SCIENCE.
Post by: East Coast Hustle on January 15, 2010, 04:53:44 am
Brand: Four Loko

Flavor: "Loko Uva"

Booze: 12%

Serving Size: 23.5 oz.

Stimulants: Taurine, Guarana, Caffeine

Other Known Ingredients: Artificial Flavor, FD&C Red #40, FD&C Blue #1

Tastes Like: A mix of grape soda and paint thinner

Verdict: Barely tolerable, as long as you're thirsty and it's kept ICE cold. Will probably drink again someday.

Rating (out of ten points): 3

Brand: Joose

Flavor: "Jungle Joose"

Booze: 9.9%

Serving Size: 23.5 oz.

Stimulants: Taurine, Ginseng, Caffeine

Other Known Ingredients: Certified Color, FD&C Yellow #5

Tastes Like: Equal parts Sweet 'n' Low, buttered popcorn, and burnt clutch.

Verdict: Hutus wouldn't have made Tutsis drink this stuff during the Rwandan genocide. If I were Haitian, drinking this would be the worst thing that happened to me this week. Would only purchase again for use as an insecticide.

Rating: Zero. As in, zero redeeming qualities. And zero chance I will ever drink it again.

Joose is amazingly terrible. I have now sampled every flavor. They are all terrible. Like Con-Air terrible (in the sense that it's so bad you actually start to enjoy it). The buzz is deadly, as well, if you drink enough. That 9.9 sneaks up on you pretty quick. And the resulting hangover provides the feeling of a belly full of thumb-tacks. Bad things happen when the Joose is loose...

ECH's post-prep pre-lunch-rush breakfast of choice when working:

combine in blender:

1 banana (peeled)
1 raw egg (shell can be discarded, if preferred)
1/2 cup orange juice
1/2 cup frozen strawberries
1/2 cup milk
1 cup decent brandy or rum

blend until smooth, then pour into a 22oz. mug until about 1/2 to 2/3 full.
top mug off with 1/2 can of fruit punch-flavored Nos Energy Drink
stir gently with spoon to mix, then pound it down.

repeat, as you will usually end up with enough to make two mugs.

you won't have to eat for a good 12 hours and you will be totally ready to fistfight a rhino.

I think with that much rum, the egg is pretty much cooked.  But, they say egg substitutes don't have the same issues but all the same protien.  IDK, the thought of raw eggs is just EWWW to me.  I can drink the rest of it!!

you never notice the raw egg blended in with all that stuff. And I've been eating eggs raw and/or over-easy for most of my life and have never gotten sick from it once. the trick with raw egg is to not let it sit out at room temp for long, and to be sure to wash the shells (gently) before you crack the eggs open in the first place.

They also make pasteurized eggs, or you can gently lower it into boiling water for 1 minute then stick it in an ice bath.

i love energy drink mixes with fruit juice, but what's the raw egg for, even? i mean, apart from I dunno, blending a raw egg into your smoothie, which is all kinds of cool.

proteins you say? but don't you need the proteins after doing hard work [for repairing/growing muscles], and slow carbs before?

also for alcoholic energy drink, I'd agree with Cain. Vodka, Red Bull and I personally like adding grapefruit juice myself. Also I prefer the "Slammer" brand of energy drinks we have in the Netherlands here, they're a quarter the price of red bull and IMO taste better [weird kind of hint of gasoline-ish flavour, yeah I know, but it's chemical juice anyway, plus it combines well with alcohol].

Definitely still sell it around here, at least in Southern NH and I'm sure I've seen it in MA too. Have to say, we only recently (few months ago) found out they took the "energy" crap out of Sparks, which is the only reason we ever choked it down at all. Not long after that, heading out fishing, my boyfriend and his friend discovered a dusty container of Joos in a nearly-bare liquor store (which should've been a good sign from the start). I wasn't there to try it but from what he said it was just as awful as ECH described

Stimulants: Taurine, Guarana, Caffeine

Other Known Ingredients: Artificial Flavor, FD&C Red #40

Tastes Like: Fruit Punch, if fruit punch were made in a prison toilet tank.

Verdict: Tasted better than either of the first 2 contestants, but made me void my bowels within 5 minutes of the first sip and left me with a very angry and pained gut after half a can. Could not finish.

Rating (out of ten points): Incomplete. Will try again tonight at the party and report on results of slamming an entire can.

Guys? this isn't the "name-drop the shitty trendy bars in NoLa that you've been to that serve overpriced, needlessly complicated cocktails that taste bad" thread. If you want to do that in MY thread, please stick to discussing hideous dive bars that keep a bottle of bwabande behind the bar for particularly brave souls.

In other words, Snake & Jake's or GTFO.

Have you been to the Dragon's Den? Filling my gut with Takka vodka is the only way I don't get food poisoning breathing the air in that place.

1135?  Dude, on Halloween Team Vodka DRANK THEM OUT OF VODKA. 

AND THEN WE LITERALLY DRANK ALL THEIR BEER.  The bartender fucking loved us.

Oh, there we are!

I won't bother asking LMNO. Even Mr. Chop and Mr. Scratch wouldn't be able to save him if he walked into that place wearing nice clothes.

Jesus. I just missed you. I was there the night before and had plans to go back on H'ween but had an emergency in Mobile and had to drive back in a hurry that morning. FUCK.

I dare you. Any of you.

I've heard it's nowhere near as bad as it was pre-Katrina. As far as I know there haven't been any fatal stabbings there this year.

I didn't realize it was a contest but rather a standards water-level thing. Yes, S&J wins.

Yeah, dude. Worse than R Bar. Worse than Aunt Tiki's. You win.

Needless to say, I fucking love the place (or did, anyway - I'd be disappointed if it's actually not as bad as it used to be).

I don't think you have to worry. Short of razing the place, there's not much that can dress up that sow.

I was dating a girl who was going to school at Tulane (this was, oh...2001, I think?) and her and all of her fancy friends were absolutely HORRIFIED when I came back to her place, fairly drunk, and told them all that they needed to come with me to this awesome bar I had found a few blocks up the street. :lulz:

My bar of choice used to have a shooting a week. Out front, of course: guns and swearing weren't allowed inside.

Man, where have the golden days gone?

It's true, Nigel. The kids these days just don't have the fortitude required for Saturday Night.

I can verify that Four Locos are highly effective gut cleansers.

For $2.69 and the possibility that you won't even remember it, that's a bargain.

Bah, they're worthless now. There's no caffeine in them anymore. If I just want cheap disgusting alcohol I'll go for MD 20/20.

BUMP because I am doing horrible things with alcohol at the moment.
The high pepper concentration is making it impossible to get drunk.
I'm sweating a lot though.
