Now that school is back in session that means early mornings all around for everyone. Running this child to preschool and this child to elementary, plus staying up late to blog, and getting up early all over again sure does leave this momma tired. When 5-hour ENERGY® contacted me about trying their product and posting about a fun contest they have, I was ecstatic. Maybe 5-hour ENERGY® was the answer to everything?? I was ready to give it a shot (pun intended)!

I was sent a generous box of a ton of their flavors to try. If you haven’t heard of 5hour ENERGY® or are curious about them, here’s some great information:

5hour ENERGY® shots are dietary supplements that provide hours of energy and alertness
Contain a blend of B-vitamins, amino acids, and essential nutrients
Helps people feel alert and energized for hours
Zero sugar, zero carbs, zero herbal stimulants and 4 calories!
Caffeine in a 5hour ENERGY® shot is comparable to a cup of the leading premium coffee
May consume up to 2 bottles of 5hour ENERGY®, spaced several hours apart. For moderate energy, drink ½ bottle of 5hour ENERGY®

I’ve actually tried a few of them now over the past couple weeks and my favorite is the Pink Lemonade flavor! I have to say they really do give me energy without feeling jittery. It makes me feel alert and energized to get chores done, errands done, etc! I also like that they are a small shot, and it’s not a whole drink you have to chug down. The fact that it’s only 4 calories is a huge plus!

Along with trying their products, I was encouraged to make a drink recipe using a 5-hour ENERGY® for their Yummification Contest (which I’ll tell you about shortly!).

Lemon Lime Soda
Ice Cubes
5-hour ENERGY® Lemon Lime Flavor

Place your ice cubes in a glass, pour in your 5-hour ENERGY® Lemon Lime Shot, and then fill with Lemon Lime Soda.

I think my husband drinks this stuff straight. I never gave it a thought to mixing it with something like sprite. I will have to say something to him next time he gets it.
