Rockstar Horchata Energy Drink Review

When there is no more flavors left to make, Rockstar makes a horchata energy drink. The most intriguing, if not desperate, attempt from the company, this sixteen ounce variety at least visually stands out; the large bird graphic in particular giving it distinction from the brand's other offerings.

The gelatinous, lactescent beverage pours into your mouth, an experience considerably richer than most of the company's coffee experiments. Its heavy mouthfeel gives the clement fatty savor decent verisimilitude, although the rice flour and sunflower oil give the texture more weight than the milquetoast milky sapor suggests. The actual taste? It is predominately cinnamon, a slight spiciness with an earthy edge of indistinct nuttiness. It is vapid with unfortunately minimal depth, each lardaceous sip staining your palate with a dense consistency but a famine of flavor. Every sip climaxes with a metallic, synthetic aftertaste that is quickly squashed by another gulp; giving the entire episode one final reminder that you are drinking orxata from a can.

Here is where the drink excels: 225 milligrams of caffeine. A great amount resulting in an almost four hour buzz. Each can also contains: B vitamins, taurine, inositol, l-carnitine, guarana, milk thistle, and ginseng. On the whole, Horchata is a creative and almost successful expansion of the long-running Rockstar line. Almost.
