Battery Remix

March 9th, 2024

Quite often the combo of lime and strawberry in a drink can be slightly too sour, but Battery have got the mix just right. All this drink needs now is a glass full of crushed ice and a couple of shots of rum to make it the perfect strawberry daiquiri.

MEDAHUMAN Energy: Cranberry and Lime

October 14th, 2023

This was a first for me – CBD, the legal and non-intoxicating component of cannabis. Medahuman have a range of CBD drinks available and I made the mistake of purchasing one of each variety. It turns out that only one contained caffeine and is therefore the only one eligible to receive a review on this site! But that does mean that I can say with confidence that this particular flavour, cranberry and lime, is the least disgusting on offer! Maybe it’s just my tastes, but I find bitter ‘healthy’ drinks unpleasant. This ‘Energy’ variety of Medahuman thought manages to balance some of that bitterness caused by the main ingredients of cranberry and lime and achieves a slight sweetness. At £2.50 per can it isn’t cheap, but this product does have a unique selling point and was stocked in a major UK supermarket. I can’t say that I noticed any effects from the CBD, and perhaps after 5 cans over the course of a week I am not supposed to noticed much. It worked as an energy drink though, providing enough caffeine to stop that ever present potential cold turkey headache.

Prime Energy Drink Lemon Lime

May 14th, 2023

First there was Prime, the expensive coconut water drink prized by every 12-year-old in the country. Now there’s Prime Energy Drink and it’s less in demand mainly because the shops won’t sell it to them 🙂 I love lemon and lime drinks, so I thought I’d start by trying the Lemon Lime Prime Energy. It’s a very strong flavour, no watering this down at all. That does make it quite sickly to drink sadly and extremely sweet despite the lack of sugar in it. It’s an ok energy drink packing plenty of caffeine, and the branding is certainly premium. At £2 per can it’s priced as a premium drink of course, but I have paid a lot more for considerably worse tasting drinks! Bingo bingo…

Rockstar Refresh Strawberry and Lime

May 6th, 2023

I know that strawberry and lime is a popular combination now, but I’m not sure I get it. I love lime. I love strawberry. But, together? It’s not unpleasant but you end up with it tasting of neither, just a mush of strawberry lime hints in a general fruity drink. Look, the drink is ok, it’s refreshing, but I’m just not sure that strawberry and lime is up there with the killer combos of tomato and basil, or chocolate and orange. Not that you’d want either of those from an energy drink of course.

Boost Juic’d Watermelon and Lime Twist

September 10th, 2022

Despite the fancy graphics and promise of watermelon and lime in a refreshing large can, this was actually a bit forgetful. Honestly, I finished the can and couldn’t remember much about what it tasted like really – it was just a bland background drink that was a bit watery and sweet. No distinct flavour at all unfortunately.

Oshee – The Witcher – Blizzard (Strawberry-Lime)

July 30th, 2022

Last time I tried an Oshee drink it was a very ‘health’ oriented brand with Vitamin Energy labelling plastered all over the cans. They appear to have taken a very different approach lately and have released a couple of Gaming Edition flavours in conjunction with The Witcher. The can is adorned with so many words, in both English and Polish, but from what I can gather this drink is both an Energy Elixir and a Witcher Potion in the flavour of a Blizzard. Blizzards must taste like Strawberry and Lime then. It’s quite a sharp and sickly flavour, not too refreshing sadly. Probably sharp enough to kick you into action whilst gaming though…

Monster Mule Ginger Brew

September 12th, 2020

Energy drinks with ginger are rare, and usually they burn! Monster have managed to get the flavour just right here. There’s no hint of the usual Monster energy mix here at all, instead you have a nice and surprisingly refreshing ginger and lime (aka, Moscow Mule without the vodka) drink. It’s quite high in sugar and gives you a massive kick there along with the usual caffeine content. I found this from US import site https://atasteofthestates.com/

Lucozade Revive – Lemon and Lime

September 5th, 2020

New Lucozade time! I love lemon and lime drinks… I know Lucozade doesn’t have much caffeine in, so you won’t get a kick from it in that department, but it is very refreshing and easy to drink. A nice summery tipple.

Oshee Vitamin Energy: Vitamin D+K

July 11th, 2020

Very tasty but sadly hardly any caffeine that I could tell. It contains guarana extract but that doesn’t appear to give the drink enough caffeine to warrant a high caffeine warning. The mint flavour is very subtle and works well with the fruity lemon-lime.
