Red Light Energy Drink Review:
Lately I have been reviewing tons of energy shots and candies and have not actually reviewed an Energy Drink in quite some time. I know the competition is not as fierce in the energy shot segment, but I was more than happy when the Red Light Energy Drink showed up on my door step. I was even more delighted when I saw that the Kosher certified 12 ounce energy drinks (they offer a sugar free version as well) came in sleek and sexy packaging. Probably one of the best designed bottles I have seen in quite some time. The Red Light Energy drinks are both seem like they are tailored as cocktail mixers with a sexy appeal. Alright enough fluff, let's see how the Red Light Original Seduction Energy Drink performs in the taste and kick reviews!
Red Light Energy Drink Review: Taste
With a name like "Original Seduction" I was expecting quite a bit from my taste test... and I was far from disappointed. I drank the first 6 ounces alone with no mixer and the taste could only be described as a magic elixir of goodness. No seriously, this is easily one of the best tasting energy drinks that I have tried as the lightly carbonated citrus berry flavor goes down smooth. The berry flavor stood out the most and the medicinal aftertaste... was not present at all. My next test was as a mixer. Absolute Red Light special please... Sounds complicated but it's just vodka mixed with Red Light. Even though it's a basic mixed drink, the flavor Red Light added was pleasant, making me feel like I had just whipped up one of the world's greatest concoctions. If the sugar free version tastes this great I might have a new favorite energy mixer on my hands. Taste Rating - 9.5
Red Light Energy Drink Review: Kick
Since this drink is primarily meant as a mixer, although it is great as a standalone, I was not expecting tons of energy. I mean, who want's to be bouncing off the walls like you are at a rave after having one or two mixers? That being said each Red Light contains 90 milligrams of caffeine (similar to a Red Bull) as well as Panax Ginseng, Taurine and B-vitamins. So know the kick was not off the walls, but a couple of these mixers and you should be good for the night (just don't drive). Kick Rating - 7.5
Red Light Energy Drink Review: Final Judgment
Love the sex appeal vibe coming from the bottle, the flavor was great and the price tag of $2.29 is actually cheap for a high end energy mixer. Combine that with the taste and we have ourselves a winner here! I am not entirely sure where you can get it at brick and mortar stores, but I know you can purchase this stuff online at the Red Light store. If anyone knows where you can pick this stuff up besides online, feel free to chime in below in the comments section. Final Judgment - 8.5
