The Look: Drank comes in a mostly purple can. The first thing that grabbed my attention on the can is the slogan, "Slow your roll". I feel this works great for a relaxation beverage. Also on the front of the can is the drink name "Drank" and the words "extreme relaxation". Flipping the can around there is a passage about the ingredients and the usual supplement facts. Overall the can does a great job advertising the fact it is a drink made to help you relax.

Taste: Judging by the heavy use of purple on the can I assumed that Drank would have a grape flavor. Upon opening up the can, my beliefs were confirmed. The taste of Drank starts off with a nice carbonated grape soda flavor that is a tad bit on the syrupy side. If I didn't know this had other ingredients in it, I would of easily thought this was just grape soda.

Does It Work: Normally the drinks and products I review are based on how well they kick your ass into gear. Since Drank is made to relax you I will base my score on how well it achieves that.
Each can of Drank uses a combination of rose hips, melatonin, and valerian root to help give you a relaxed sensation. Along with those ingredients there are 220 calories per can, 54 g of sugar, and a few B vitamins. About half way through the can I started to notice the key ingredients doing their job and I was definitely more relaxed. By the time I had finished the entire can I was pretty mellow. I no longer had any motivation to do anything and I spent the next few hours mellowed out in front of the Xbox. This is by no means the same type of relaxation you get out of alcohol but a more mellow buzz that still allows you to function.

Overall Thoughts: I can see where Drank would be a great drink to have after work instead of having an alcoholic beverage. If you are having a stressful day or just want to unwind a bit you should give Drank a try.
