If you have spent any time in Berlin/Germany, then you know about Club-Mate, and if you know about Club-Mate, you think about Club-Mate every day, kicking yourself for not shipping a case back home. Club-Mate is, hands down, the most magical, delightful, beautiful energy drink available on earth. It is slightly sweet, sharply effervescent, and has a nice kick of ginger that is a magical balm for hangovers. It also will give you a glorious, clean, efficient caffeine high that can power you through an entire weekend at Berghain or a hard night of blogging. You won’t even noticed you’re caffeinated. You’ll just want to do things more. You know how people in Berlin will do every known ingestible drug AT ONCE, and ALL THE TIME, but nobody cares about coke? Club-Mate. CLUB-MATE.
Anyway, this is a public service to let you know that I recently found a drink that is virtually identical to Club-Mate and available in the states. It is called Guayaki Yerba Mate Sparkling Classic Gold and I just got 2 cases delivered to my house, and I’m going to go write 10 novels now. This is really big.
