Energy Drink Mixing Tips
Our powdered energy drink mixes are designed to taste great right out of the package, but there are some refinements to be made!
Like many beverages, serving Mettle Energy as chilled as possible will result in a better flavor. It's certainly not required, but recommended if you are trying to optimize your experience. On the rocks is good 😉
Use more or less water:
If one serving in 16oz of water is too bold (taste-wise) you can use more water to dilute the flavor. Or if you want to drink a full serving first thing in the morning, but don't want to drink all 16 oz, you may just mix it with less water (resulting in a stronger flavor).
Use less powder:
If a full serving gives you the jitters or you just don't need the full 200mg of caffeine, you can always just make a partial serving. Remember: caffiene is a stimulant and should be taken at a dosage appropriate for the individual. That is one of the benefits of Mettle Energy; it's super flexible, so only mix up what you need!
You can mix club soda or seltzer in as part of the water. Don't use tonic water, because tonic contains a lot of sugar and will afffect the flavor. Use store bought seltzer, or you may carbonate the beverage directly using available carbonating devices. Many people like it flat, but carbonation is still worth a try sometime.
Energy Shot Powder Mixing
The shot powder is designed to be mixed with 2 oz of water to fit in a standard shot bottle. If you desire a more smooth flavor, it goes down even better in up to 4 oz of water (1/4 cup).
