Four Loko Caffeinated Malt Liquor: Orange Blend

For some inexplicable reason, people cant’s seem to get into drinking alcohol with breakfast. Sure, a Mimosa or a little brunch bubbly might be a naughty treat, but there is no way to crack open a bottle of Jack before ten AM and not look like you are heading for your very 12 step plan. Some might see this as just a silly excuse to get drunk. Well,that is absolutely not true. I am using it as a silly excuse to test out the hangover remedy I got in the mail.

So to hell with the morning brunch Mimosa. This weekend, to go along with my healthy and nutritious breakfast of bacon, buttered toast and cheesy scrambled eggs, since I might as well crack open a Four Orange or two to go with it. Light and bubbly like champagne, almost orangey flavored almost but not entirely like a glass of Minute Maid.

Four Loko Orange is a mixture of caffeinated Orangina and strong bad beer. In a couple weeks when this loses the caffeine, it will also lose all reason to purchase this drink. Of course, if you are a caffeine addict like me, all it takes is a drop of 5150 juice or HiJinks to get this drink back to rights. Still, I am sure that the loss of caffeine from Four Orange is surely going to kill it, like it killed Sparks a few years ago.

You actually don’t need to be all creative to mix your own Four Loko Orange blend. Just a little Sunkist (the only mass distributed caffeinated orange soda around) and mix with a bit of bad bourbon and you more or less have the same thing. IF you drink enough of it you can even get the same bright yellow/orange tongue that you used to with Sparks.

Or If you want something that is even closer, just dump a double shot of Tang into a big can of Earthquake or Pit bull and you will not be able to taste the difference (after two cans, you would not be able to tell the difference between this and gasoline either). Still, next time, I think I will learn my lesson and skip the Noon hangovers.
