It is no secret that Atomic Coffee Bar is one of the most popular coffee shops among teens in the Quad Cities. Here is a list of the top 10 energy drinks to try based on recommendations from an Atomic barista.

1. Caramel Apple 

This is the perfect fall drink if you do not like coffee. It tastes exactly like a candy apple and is even better blended. It is also one of the coolest looking drinks to order due to the caramel drizzle on the cup and the lid! 

2. Gummy Bear with Blue Raspberry

This drink has recently become a customer favorite!. Further, people order gummy bear with blue raspberry flavoring more often than they do just gummy bear. 

3. Phoenix with Raspberry

In this popular energy drink, customers often order the orange drink with raspberry or peach

4. Aquamarine 

This is my personal favorite! If you like sour and refreshing drinks, order this the next time you visit Atomic. If you’re looking for a drink that is a cool color, order aquamarine with cherry for a grey colored drink. 

5. Random

If you are unsure of what to order, ask your barista what their favorite drink is or ask for a random energy drink

6. All Reds

While this is not commonly ordered, it is super simple and fun to make. If you are looking for a flavorful drink that tastes like berries, ordering All Reds is perfect for you.

7. Lava Lamp

This is a popular drink ordered, but some may not know about it because it’s not on the original energy drink menu. The greenish-teal colored drink is often ordered with pineapple flavoring.

8. Cotton Candy with Lime

A fun twist on the original cotton candy drink is to add lime. This drink is one of my favorites to make when asked for a random. The original cotton candy drink tastes identical to cotton candy you would purchase from the fair.

9. Pina Colada

Refreshing for the summer time, the popular pina colada drink is made as an energy drink at Atomic. People also commonly order this drink mixed with cotton candy.

10. Peach Mojito 

If you’re looking for a refreshing drink but aren’t a fan of a lot of flavoring, try peach mojito! Although you can add any flavor to the mojito drink, peach is the most popular. Mojito is a minty flavor that is perfect for the summer time. 

One of the best parts of being a barista at Atomic is seeing what other customers order. Don’t be shy when it comes to creating your own drinks because they may just end up becoming a secret menu item!
