Uber Red Bull

Espresso coffee, chilled, 30 ml
Lemon juice, a few drops
Electral (ORS) salt (or sugar+salt in WHO-recommended mixture), 3 tsp
Soda water, 250 ml

Stir first three ingredients until ORS dissolves, and add the soda. Wakes you up faster than Red Bull, tastes more obnoxious, and costs much less.

  1. I’d be even more interesting in knowing how you hit upon this devilish concoction? Trial and error couldn’t have been easy….

  2. There weren’t repeated trials, but of course you could argue that the whole thing is an error. Basically I wanted something with salt (multiple salts), sugar (lots) and caffeine (lots). The lemon is just for taste (and brings it a bit closer to Red Bull). Soda, I find, helps me get awake. The commercial concoction has taurine and other things that I can live without…

  3. 1) 1 heaping teaspoon of instant coffee.2) About an inch (2.54cm) of water in the bottom of the cup.3) Stir.3a) Eat a piece of bread if you haven’t eaten.4) Down the coffee as fast as possible.5) Have some water ready to wash your mouth out.6) Extremely simple and cheap.7) Seems to do the job, fast results.
