Rubyy ~ Blood Orange Energy- 12.05.08

rubyy0.jpg Wow. Ok, so Rubyy, i can’t even decide where to start on telling you how many ways i’m loving this latest addition to the Energy Drink space… obvious first impressions, GORGEOUS bottle ~ i’m such a sucker for the matte black, and the vector graphics on the label with playful fairy tale-like motifs… and its the fun aluminum bottle! In such a unique shape! Not to mention the nice use of fonts and color palette… and it totally glows under a black light! And that’s just the outside… you’d think with that type of exterior, they might be trying too hard to over compensate, but this is no red bull… granted, i do have a think for blood oranges, they are just so visually dramatic and delicious! But this Blood Orange Energy “lightly carbonated energy drink” ~ is yummy! Yummy to the point where i was so exhausted and thirsty and accidentally chugged the Rubyy by my laptop after the Paper 24 Hour Dept Store… and then i was up for ages, so it works too… And unlike those Monster/Red Bull type drinks where the color of the liquid is less than appealing with its radioactive glow, well this one is actually a nice pinkish blood orange color (pics on the next page if you don’t believe me!)…

So i’m loving the bottle, the liquid is delicious… and we haven’t even begun to explore the mixology options! You can pretty much mix Rubyy in with rum, vodka, tequila ~ from your variations of cosmos to tequila sunrises, you know the type… but to get a little more unique, i’ve attached some of their new Holiday recipes as well! So see all the packaging pics, recipes and more on the next page!




“Consume the spark, liberate the sol. A life-quenching infusion of deeply potent ruby blood oranges, tangerines, valencia oranges, vitamines and natural, energy-producing ingredients. Rubyy, on all day and up all night.”

Rubyy was by far the best tasting and coolest energy drink I have tried in 2008. Can’t wait to try the sugarfree version in the white bottle!

Am I the only one who finds “life-quenching” an odd term?
This looks fantastic. The logo isn’t my favorite, but I’m loving the vector filigree background.

OMG 12 bucks for one bottle (3.49 for it and 8.00 for shipping)

I’ll stick to my Bawls and Red Bulls, THANK YOU

Since you have posted this, I have searched the bay area for taste of this energetic treat. Finally doing some research and Googling it, it seems that it only sold in the L.A. area or online.

Most definitely sad face.
