Relaxation Drinks?

Controversial ‘relaxation drinks’ provide focused energy, play as anti-Red Bull

http://www.dailynebraskan.com/a-e/controversial-relaxation-drinks-provide-focused-energy-play-as-anti-red-bull-1.2419802

"Energy drinks claim to provide a boost for the student with four finals, three finals and that meeting they need to go to. The added energy may make the student more awake for their tasks, but it won't decrease their stress level.

 

That's where beverages like Just Chill come in...." 

 

This really isn't anything new.  MY favorite "relaxation drink" has been around for tens of thousands of years...it's called WINE!  (Mead is even older!)  But I can see these drinks going like gangbusters on college campuses just like Energy drinks.  (Just ordered a case of Monster for my college student nephew for Xmas.) 

Thoughts? 

(I'll stick with wine, thank you.)

  • They sell those right in the campus bookstore at my school - 5 hr energy shots and some sort of downer shot side by side on a display. It's like grooming them for addiction. One to get up in the morning, one to go to bed at night.

  • I like both tea and wine. Not together, of course. I don't drink wine for relaxation though.

  • I don't like tea, I wish I did. I just can't like it. I like some wine, I found some local ones I really like. But, I like frozen strawberry margaritas, too. And wine spritzers. Problem with the spritzers is I drink so much wine so fast, then I'm asleep! But relaxed.

  • Maybe I should lay in a supply for when dh is delployed... I like tea too..there is a Christmas tea I get every year..I stash a few boxes in the freezer to use until it comes out again. I like a glass of wine with a bath or while spending some time on our deck...we have a beautiful view.
