5 Hour Energy #Yummification and #Giveaway

[Note: This giveaway has ended. A winner has been chosen!]

Disclosure: I have been compensated to write this post. All of the opinions are my own. 

Confession Time: I could not survive without 5 Hour Energy. I have it on hand at all times. If you follow me on Instagram, you understand because you've seen my crazy busy life. So, if you've wondered how I do it, my secret is 5 Hour Energy, lots of coffee, and dark chocolate. What I love the most is that there are vitamins, no sugar, no herbal supplements (no worrying about drug interaction or heart racing like with some), 4 calories, and the same amount of caffeine as in a cup of coffee. I can even drink 2 a day for those crazy days.

I keep a shot in my purse at all times. I keep extras on hand for crazy work days, paranormal investigations, bigfoot expeditions, Paralina shows, and especially vacations (no naps for the Tbomb).

I usually just chug it, but 5 Hour Energy has recently launched their #Yummification contest, so I've been having fun experimenting with different mixtures. I went through the house and gathered everything that fit in the rules, and tried a few different things.

After I experimented a little, I decided that I was in for a treat and headed to Wal-Mart to pick up some supplies. After all, mom needs some pampering in the form of an oh so yummy drink occasionally. I came up with the perfect snazzy drink featuring 5 Hour Energy. Before I share with you, I want to know what you would mix with 5 Hour Energy.

Of the choices above, the strawberry lemonade soda (no calories, no added sugar, no caffeine) mixed with the lemon lime 5 Hour energy was my favorite. The pink grapefruit mixed with the pomegranite 5 Hour Energy was a close second. My husband liked apple juice mixed with the sour apple 5 Hour Energy (I think its because of the camo bottle). 

Believe it or not, I came up with something even better! (Shocking, right?!) This Palmetto Energy Zinger is ah-mah-zing!!! Did you know that South Carolina grows more peaches than any other southern state, and we have the giant peach! In fact, Southern Living said, "Bite into a South Carolina peach, and you'll know exactly what summer tastes like." Of course, I had to choose between tea and peach, so here goes. You can always use tea instead of ginger ale, I just like the oomph the ginger ale gives! 

Yes, that is a Christmas glass, but it has glitter in it, so its okay!
