I’ve tasted Mamba Energy.
Want a pick-me-up drink? Then like most drinkers, you’ll grab can or two of Red Bull. You may not like the taste, but it hits the spot for going that extra mile, especially, if you’re partying or driving!  And if you want it turbo charged, add shot or two of vodka. Sorted!
