    From the sound of things, Ogre finds it refreshing.

    I've had Red Bull before.  I've had Gatorade as well.  Durong drinking Red Bull and after drinking Gatorade, I've felt like I'd eaten a fat stick of chalk.

    Maybe this cancels itself out.

    Gatorade covers up the Red Bull. You get the electrolytes of the Gatorade and the peppy benefits of Red Bull without it's bovine whizz taste

    In that case, I'll have to try this out at some point. Tried my first Red Bull when I was in Austria last year... and hated it. Thought it tastes like cough syrup or something. Granted, I had no trouble staying awake through classes the rest of that day, but the taste was nasty, the aftertaste even more so. If Gatorade cancels that out... George, I think you might have something there.

    What happens if vodka is added to the mix?  Would it go the way of 4-loko?

    I tried the Gator-bull back in November after reading about it in Uprising, using Lemon Gatorade.  On the occassion, I had just finished a shift at 04:30 and was scheduled to begin a twenty hour training seminar at 08:30 and decided to try it out.  The taste was fine, but I don't think that Red Bull agrees with me.  Definately kept me going through the seminar, but had some negative effects on me that I attribute to the Red Bull, having never consumed it before, like hot flashes and excessive perspiration.  Probably that was due to bolting it down very quickly on the first day.  On the second, with more sleep, and drinking it in a more measured way I felt a more sustained stimulative effect without getting an over buzz.

    And to answer your question FMJ, yeah, don't try it with vodka.  In spite of the popularity of mixing energy drinks with booze, we've seen a lot in the news lately about the detrimental effects of doing so.  For very valid reasons, as I can personally attest.  A week after the training seminar we were at a convention where a vendor was serving free Red Bull and vodka cocktails.  Chatting up the server, I said, "So have you ever heard of a Gator-bull..."  I refuse to reccount the details of the night that followed.  Suffice to say that some nipples were pierced, at one point we attended a transgendered cabaret, group tattoos were discussed, and eventually we were sufficiently annoying to nearly start a small riot.

    On the other hand, I did wake up with no hangover to speak of.

    Agreed. Friend of mine drank one (one) once when we were in Austria, and had no memory of the rest of the night. Now, this girl had worked as a bartender for ten years (she was twenty-eight at the time) and could drink men twice her age and twice size under the table no problem. She could handle her liquor. And one Red bull-vodka mixer did her in. She was just lucky that the rest of the group (I left long before this happened) was sober enough to get her home without incident.

    Gatorbulls got me through my son's sleep disorder.  Better than speed 'cause well, it's legal for starters, and I don't get the jitters.  The blue Gatorade is my favorite to mix with.

    Brilliant! I must try this Gator-Bull concoction when I've got things to do.

    BTW, I've always liked the taste of Red Bull. Seriously, I like it a lot. When I do have one these days, it's a sugar free type.

    The other day I was reminded of the late comic Mitch Hedberg, so when I read the Gator-Bull topic I thought of this:

    Well huh. I always thought it was more of a 50/50 mixture for logistical purposes. That's how I've taken to making mine, anyway. I take a full 20-oz Gatorade and pour half of it into an empty 20-oz bottle, then I have room to pour an 8.4-oz Redbull (as seen) into each bottle. One Gatorade per two Redbulls. If I use a larger Gatorade, I use the next size up Redbull. Nice to see the "official" mixology straight from The Ogre, though! Thanks!

    I wouldn't mix Red Bull and Alcohol. I've heard that when you make alcohol sweet and yummy like soda, it's much easier to overdrink, and cause much discomfort. Plus, both alcohol and Red Bull make you really dehydrated, so if you combine the two, you're asking for the hangover of the century. I once started to lose my vision from drinking nothing but Gatorade and Sprite after a long day of 100 degree paintball. Dehydration is not your friend, just trust me on that one.
