There’s myriad reasons why one might choose to sip an energy drink. Whether as a mid-afternoon pick-me-up or morning coffee alternative, the sips offer a quick zap of energy to bring you back in focus.

(For context, the FDA recommends that adults consume no more than 400 milligrams of caffeine per day.) Some brands are just as well-known for their cocktail mixing abilities — care for a vodka Red Bull, anyone?
