I have always wanted to do a read accurate clone of Monster Energy drink, so I bought Green Goblin FW and Energy Drink TPA. My initial test of Green Goblin at 15% was weak, 20 and 25% were closer, but still not close enough. I have settled on 20% as a base and will experiment with flavors to add to it to get a good clone.
My Red Bull attempt at 15% was good, a little weak and sweet compared to the real Red Bull drink out of the can, so I am going to 20% to try, should be very close. Then I will add a little Sour to try and make it like read Red Bull.
Any ideas of additional flavors to add for Monster or Red Bull would be appreciated.
I ran across this somewhere online. Never tried but sounds interesting…wonder if it would be safe to vape??
"Mio Energy E-Liquid? Sweeeet!!! The main ingredient (besides water) in Mio Energy liquid is polypropylene glycol… That’s right PG! Mix it with a little glycerine and you can vape energy! And holy sh*t! It works great and vapes… oh, so smooth! “Give it a try!!!”
It was meant as a joke, I just got to thinking about the What the F**k look on a doctor’s face in such a situation. As I was considering colorings at one point after my trip to the Philippines, so many of their flavors use it. I guess it makes them look more interesting and increases sales. A lot of the Loraan flavors seem to be colored too…
Read the ingredients on the back of a can… I started brainstorming a Peach Rehab recipe and decided to look at the can and it says “Contains: Coconut” on the back… I wouldn’t have guessed that for a peach tea. The can may give you some clues.
Not sure if you have noticed in the Red Bull drink, but it has a back note of geranium or rose or maybe even a rose geranium taste. It’s different. Try one and look for that taste. Tell me if I’m full of shit
You are probably right, it would explain why Red Bull is somewhat sour in taste. That’ll be a hard flavor to find. My local DIY shop can’t even get a good Cola flavor… Anyone know who makes the best Cola? I want something close to Coke flavor if I can get it…
