How do I make my own Monster Energy drink?

I love the Monster brand energy drinks! But they are too expensive! How do I make these at home?

buy ES(euroshopper energy drink) only 00,80-1,10€(1,0402-1,4303USD) and it tastes best what i drink!!

some jonne's (fiinnish term of 12-17year old energy drink drinker who trolling and terrorizing the city) call it a drink of the gods

So glad I found this! Anyone have a Lo Carb Monster recipe or how to get that cotton candy flavor? And thanks for the 5150 info, just ordered some.

Monster, Rockstar, Red Bull Energy Drink Recipe. Please do not tell the big companies that I am telling you this secret – but all you need to do is add liquid caffeine mix to sparkling Apple Cider. You will hardly be able to tell the difference. Seriously, the taste, look, fizz, and energy, will blow you away.

You can purchase the inexpensive 5150 Energy (Semi-Sweetened Mix) at: www.5150energy.com. The thing to remember is that powder caffeine will not work. It will not dissolve in cold beverages. And, even in hot beverages it will only dissolve slightly.

Another great advantage to making your own energy drink is that you control how much caffeine you want to add. Add a little or a lot – it depends on how much of an energy boost you want – you decide!

You'll have to find out what is in Monster and shuffle around some of the ingredents to your liking.

Ginseng and caffine are pretty high up on the list so that's the part that's the part that gives up the energy.

I don't know if you can buy caffine as a seperate ingred. but I guess you could crush up some no-doz pills.

Let us know how this works for you.

Actually, ginseng and caffeine are what makes you want to burn the energy. The sugar rush is what provides the energy to be burned.
Yea, I guess you're right.
(sugar) and what causes the crash later on, too ;)
lol ...gotta love the name of that ible.

3 cups sugar, 1 tbs caffeine, a bunch of ginseng and a couple cups of water...i think that's about right. ;)
