We Couldn't Find Any Pumpkin Spice Energy Drinks So We Made Our Own

By Alex Cranz on at

It’s October. Which means that one friend of mine just had her birthday, and that other friend had a half birthday. Also, it means everyone is knee deep in autumnal colours and pumpkin spice frippery. Why? Because pumpkin spice is the order of the season, and because we’re all exhausted writers who never met an caffeinated drink we wouldn’t chug.

We went with two separate recipes—each of our own concoction—for the drinks. One is just pumpkin pie syrup, soda water, and caffeine. The other is all natural, with real pumpkin, real spices, sodawater, cane syrups... and caffeine. We also had Red Bull and vodka on hand for base comparisons.

Which drink, as judged by our guest judges, is superior? You’ll have to watch all twenty minutes to find out.
