Darkliquid [The drink]

Darkliquid [The drink]

Since the original post regarding this subject has been lost into the aether, I felt it my duty to remind the world of this… substance.

Darkliquid is a drink that was created by a person of the same alias, back in 1999. Dark [the person] being allergic to alcohol was searching for a way to have fun with his friends without this particular substance. One dark night, he and some friends experimented with caffeinated stuff and created Darkliquid.

Over the years, darkliquid has been rehashed time and time again by nearly everyone we know, with different substances used in place of others, and no two batches ever come out the same. Below is the basic recipe, followed by all the substitutions we’ve used.

—————– !WARNING! —————–

Due to the really stupidly high concentrations of caffeine, sugar and other chemicals found in darkliquid, it can be very dangerous for your health. Therefore this recipe is provided only for amusement purposes only.

Sugar: 113.95g
Taurine: 0.90g

96 ProPlus tablets, ground into a fine power

1lt energy drink, such as Kick or Red Bull

Instead of ProPlus, use pure caffeine or guarana tablets that can be obtained from a heath food shop.
