The Red Bull Vodka cocktail, also known as a Heart Attack Special, is a caffeinated alcoholic beverage consisting of energy drink Red Bull and varying amounts of vodka.[1] It is popular among 25- to 50-year-olds in bars and nightclubs around the world.[2] Red Bull has been used as a general mixer in alcoholic beverages in Europe since the 1980s,[3] though not specifically with vodka. However, the drink became especially popular in North America when it began being served at San Francisco's Legendary Butter Bar, which is attributed to being its home in North America, and one of the many places you will still receive Red Bull's "Perfect Serve" of 2oz's of Vodka with a full 8.4Oz can of Red Bull.[4][5]

The ratio of Red Bull to vodka varies but is usually ¾ of Red Bull and ¼ of vodka. In some places, it is customary to serve an entire can with a single shot of vodka; in others, a can may be split between several glasses, each containing several shots of vodka. The Red Bull dominates so that the flavour of the alcohol is not too strong.

Caffeinated alcoholic energy drinks can be hazardous as caffeine can mask the influence of alcohol and may lead a person to misinterpret their actual level of intoxication.[6] However, in 2012 the scientific review paper "Energy drinks mixed with alcohol: misconception, myths and facts" was published,[7] discussing the available scientific evidence on the effects of mixing energy drinks with alcohol. The authors note that excessive and irresponsible consumption of alcoholic drinks has adverse effects on human health and behaviour, but it should be clear that this is due to the alcohol, and not the mixer. They concluded that there is no consistent evidence that energy drinks alter the perceived level of intoxication of people who mix energy drinks with alcohol and found no evidence that co-consumption of energy drinks causes increased alcohol consumption.

In 2001 it was reported in Sweden that two people died after drinking Vodka Red Bull. The Swedish National Food Administration investigated, but continued to permit the sale of Red Bull.[8]

Invention

The combination’s name grew during the summer of 1997 after a squad of lads from Langley, Slough visited Ayia Napa on the Greek/Turkish island of Cyprus. There they encountered a formidable non-carbonated energy drink called M150 which was banned by most countries at that time. Looking to replace the usual ‘get up & go’ toxins they were used to taking in England the group experimented with combining M150 with vodka. Tyrone was prolific in this master stroke and his antics became stuff of legend. Back home in Langley, the squad searched high & low for M150 and then had to settle for Red Bull.
