Red Bull Energy Drink.

Red Bull Drink.jpgHave you ever tasted Red Bull Energy Drink? I have.

On the long drive back from Tennessee, I decided that an energy boost would be a good idea, so I bought a can of the stuff, popped the top and took a long swallow.

Let me say that, in my life, I have been fortunate enough to never to have had to drink piss to try to stay alive (nor do I find the argument that pee drinking can be therapeutic to be at all convincing).

As such, I don’t know how piss tastes, but my single swallow of Red Bull Energy Drink (which ‘is farookin’ yellow), provided me with what I imagine to be a pretty good sense of how the genuine kidney-spawned fluid would work on one’s palate.

I cannot tell you whether drinking the entire can would have provided the promised energy boost, because I didn’t want the boost bad enough to drink a can of piss-tasting stuff.

I will happily leave Red Bull Energy Drink to the afficionados of urolagnia.


  1. Maybe this is why folks mix it with stuff, it hides the piss taste?

  3. … which reminds me of a story … A few years ago, my bartender served me a surprise drink, “all the rage” she called it, aptly named “Hype.”

    It was vodka mixed with some energy drink … duuuuuuuude, I lost like 12 hours …

    When I finally woke up with a killa headache you shouldn’t know from, I had no recollection of how the night ended, who I was with, how I got home, but was blessedly still wearing my clothes, and in my own bed.

  4. I’ve never tried it and thanks to your fine review, I probably never will. If I want caffeine, I’ll continue to consume mass quantities of coffee.

  5. I love this stuff! I keep it in my fridge. It’s great with Vodka or to just wake you up on a long trip. It is a bit sweet so you have to acquire the taste a bit. I don’t drink coffee so this does it’s job when I need to stay awake.
    Oh, and it’s a staple for Sissy- she drinks it in the morning.

  6. Yes, I too partake in the occasional Red Bull. I prefer sugar free. And it’s great with Vodka, or Vodka and Cranberry Juice.

    I don’t drink it so much in the mornings as I used to, but if I’m drinking vodka, or if I’m in a meeting, I’m drinking red bull.

  7. Oh, and if you don’t like the taste of red bull (which is an acquired taste), 180 or Amp’d are better tasting. More like OJ.

  9. I’m not a piss person per say, but while working at a preschool it does come in handy. To attempt to get 28 three year olds to sleep with lullaby music and stay conscious, slamming a Red Bull can do the trick. I’m thinking about giving it out to trick or treater’s just to liv’in up the neighborhood, what da ya think? Q

  10. ly tend to run on when I’ve had too much although I can’t say that I’ve tried Red Bull, exactly, Jim. As you know, my energy drink of choice is espresso. Espresssssssso. Yesss-OHYESOHYESindeedy. Caffeine for the needy. Mmm-hmm. I usually limit myself to that one big latte in the AY-EM but sometimes there’s that Diet Coke at lunch. BIG. DIET. COKE. I do like my caffeina

  13. Try Coke Blak – it tastes kinda like a carbonated kaluha, and really does the trick.

  14. Mix vodka with this vile stuff? Criminal waste of vodka, that is.

  15. When I was in Brazil a couple of years ago I noticed that it was the most popular soft drink around. I decided to give it a try. You are absolutely right. Yuck is just for starters! I will stick to espresso myself.
