Rockstar Recovery Orange

A while back Rockstar released Rockstar Recovery Lemonade and it was a huge success.  It was a great tasting drink, with minimal carbs that was one of my go to, readily available energy drinks.  Now Rockstar is back with 2 new Recovery flavors: Orange and Grape.  Today I will be taking on the orange variety.  Let's see if Rockstar Recovery Orange can continue the success that Rockstar Recovery Lemonade created.



The Look: Rockstar makes some of the slickest cans on the market in my opinion.  This can is done in orange to match the flavor and has the same design as Rockstar Recovery Lemonade.  I think the orange looks a bit nicer than the yellow did and really makes the can look amazing.  Rockstar did everything right once again, and my hat goes off to them for listing the caffeine content instead of including it in an energy blend.
(9 out of 10)

Taste:  One of the things that drew me to Recovery Lemonade was the amazing flavor.  Upon cracking open the can I got a nice orange scent that reminds me of orange flavored Gatorade.  The taste also reminds me of an orange Gatorade, which is a plus because I really enjoy Gatorade.  There is no hint of caffeine in the taste department, and the fact there is no carbonation makes the drink go down very easily.  I think Recovery Lemonade was just a touch better in flavor, but Recovery Orange is still a damn good drink.
(8.5 out of 10)


Does It Work: One of the great things about the Recovery line is that you get some added ingredients that promote hydration along with providing a great boost of energy.  Inside each can of Rockstar Recovery Orange there are 20 calories, 2 grams of carbs, a handful of B vitamins, 80 mg of sodium, 2000 mg of taurine, 160 mg of caffeine, 100 mg of panax ginseng extract, 50 mg of prickly pear extract, and 40 mg of milk thistle extract.  As you can see Rockstar did not skimp on the ingredients here.  After finishing the entire can I started to got a great boost of energy within about 15-20 minutes.  The kick lasted for over 3 hours and ended with no crash.  I also got to test this after a night of heavy drinking and I easily noticed the addition of the extra ingredients that help to hydrate me.
(8 out of 10)


Overall Thoughts:  I am really glad that Rockstar decided to expand on the Recovery lineup.  As always you can tell that Rockstar put in a great deal of thought into the packaging, the taste, and even the ingredients.  I have started seeing these almost everywhere lately and I highly suggest that you give them a try when you find one.  Rockstar Recovery Lemonade is still my favorite of the 3 but I am glad to see more choices.

So is it best to drink Rockstar Recovery before you go out or after a night of drinking? Does it prevent or cure hangover?

@Sunny It has things like the Prickly Pear Extract that are known to aid in hangovers. I tried it the next morning and noticed a huge difference.

Never tried any of the Rockstar Recovery flavors but these don't sound half-bad. Low carb is a huge plus.

I'm a big fan of the Rockstar Recovery Lemonade. I actually bought a 24 pack case off their website since I can't find the stuff around here. Really excited to give the orange flavor a try, but I'm not sure about the grape one. Thanks for the contest! I just linked back to my account on CAG.

This is awesome. More than gatorade, think of the orange Hi-C from McDonalds. With a hint of sweetener aftertaste as can be expected.

Ok, I tried this stuff last night for the first time. I'm 50 years old and had to 'recover' from a 4 day booze binge with high school buds. Was reading the sunday funnies when it kicked and holy crap did things get weird. I was super emotional and hyper aware then I crashed after a few hours. I never had anything like this before and it was downright scary. Don't recommend it to anyone.
