A nice little lemon-lime energy drink. The selling point of this one is its use of natural fruit juice instead of artificial flavourings. I think it really makes a different because it’s fruity and refreshing… it’s just a shame that fruit juice isn’t low calorie!
Normally Mojito flavoured drinks fill me with dread. They tend to be sickly and downright weird! That lime and mint combo just does nothing for me. But, this one was surprisingly ok. Only ok mind, especially given the high cost of this drink. It’s aimed at the gym going population with added BCAAs to help with that all important protein absorption, and is of course low in calories.
You can definitely tell that this is a premium lime flavoured drink – it lacks the ‘lime cordial’ taste of most of the other cheaper brands. Sadly, I didn’t find this very refreshing though which is a real shame. I could also only find this in Spanish, so I’m not sure if there’s an English language label out there either, but whatever the case it’s a member of the Red Bull family now.
A really nice and smooth lime flavoured drink. I’m a big fan of lemon and lime energy drinks, and this one doesn’t disappoint. I can’t detect the ‘cooling’ effect that you are supposed to experience, which is where the ‘frozen’ aspect of the drink branding comes in, but it’s nice regardless.
Peach and Lime should never be combined. Ever. It just doesn’t work, and what you end up with is some sort of drink that doesn’t know if it’s supposed to be sharp, sour, sweet, or bitter. It’s the taste equivalent of mixing all of your paints together to get brown.
I had high hopes for this, but it turns out that strawberry and lime do NOT go together that well – in this instance at least. It was like a badly mixed cocktail.
It tastes nice, but it’s basically diabetes in a can. According to the web site it “delivers higher levels of energy than current market leaders.” which is technically correct – it packs a whopping 62 kcal per 100ml which at least rivals Lucozade, but delivering it in a 250ml can and comparing it to other similar products it really does pack a lot more energy in the form of sugar I’m guessing from looking at the carb content.
This is the second mojito flavoured drink I’ve discovered, the first being ‘Black – Mojito’. Red Rooster have managed to do it properly though. Black Mojito suffered from the small problem of tasting nasty, I think they may have over minted their mix. You can still taste mint in Red Rooster Mojito, but it’s tempered somewhat and the sweetness from the lime is main flavour.
It’s very different, and it’s sugar free. Light, refreshing, and enjoyable, but it didn’t give me much of a wake-up kick for some reason.
