NFT: vodka red bulls

lightemup : 5/21/2019 7:56 pm
This is probably a stupid question, but I was just listening to something and they mentioned vodka redbulls in it. My mind pictured a redbull can with vodka in it. I know they're a popular cocktail in bars, but is there a vodka red bull in cans sold in convenience stores and if not why hasn't this been produced? I don't drink either way, but i think its a good idea for red bull to produce it if it isn't already out there
No.

very conscious of their brand's image. IMO, they seem to want to promote it as part of an active lifestyle (even though it's just caffeinated, carbonated sugar-water.) That's why they own and sponsor soccer teams, racing teams, action sports competitions, etc. While I'm sure they don't turn down bar business, I don't think they want to be looked at as just a mixer for cocktails.

Also, an energy drink with alcohol already included gets into the 4-Loko, marketing to minors territory.
It is dangerous to drink a depressant (alcohol)

and then combine it with a stimulant (caffeine) so that you remain awake enough to give you alcohol poisoning.

Red Bull stays away because they rightly see it as dangerous.

Not anymore. All of those kinds of drinks have been banned or rebranded as just malt liquor beverages.

I'm not disagreeing with you, but in almost every bar I go to, there is a dedicated Red bull fridge (with big logo and the inside is all lit up so you can see all the cans). They may not advertise it with vodka or whatever, but they know bars are a good place for their product.
Can you sell..

pre-mixed drinks with vodka outside of liquor stores??

The ones in grocery or convenience stores are mixed with beer or malt liquor
There was a beverage

that got banned that was basically caffeine and alcohol called Sparks.

Vodka Redbulls are delicious though. I'm not a big fan of them separately by themselves.
