We’re a week into December, can I let you in on a secret? I’m already exhausted! Between all the traveling, the hustle, the bustle, it’s enough to wear a girl out. But the month and season have only just begun. In today’s post, I’m sharing my secret weapon with you. A drink that’s delicious and will give you some energy to get through the next couple of weeks of planning, events, parties, and other holiday merriment.
How to Stay Energized Through the Holiday Season
Last month we were in Washington D.C. visiting in-laws for Thanksgiving. The drive from Nashville, TN to Washington D.C., is about 10 hours but with dogs, traffic, and other pit stops, it ends up being about 12 hours.
Before any road trip, I always head to my local Publix and stock up on drinks and snacks for the road.
I was looking at Monster Energy Drinks and found two drinks that have coffee in them, also known as a Java Monster. In case you didn’t know, I love anything with coffee in it, so I had to give these beverages a try. I grabbed two of each so my husband and I could have one on the drive to Washington D.C. and another on the drive home to Nashville.
Java Monster Mean Bean and Loca Moca are indulgent coffee drinks that are convenient since there’s no wait time! About 3/4 of the way to Washington D.C. I needed a serious pick-me-up so I reached for the Java Monster. My husband had the Mean Bean and I had the Loca Moca, and they gave us the push we needed to finish the drive with more energy.
We had a great time in Washington D.C. and saved the other Java Monsters for the ride back to Nashville. When we were headed home, we switched flavors and I tried the Mean Bean. Between the two I would say the Loca Moca is my favorite, but I was so glad to have a Java Monster on hand when I needed an extra boost to keep on driving! The 12-hour drive was long and brutal, but I didn’t feel as drained as I normally would have if I didn’t have the Java Monster to keep me going.
But Java Monster and other Monster drinks can be enjoyed in a non-driving setting too! Say you’ve been out Christmas shopping all morning and have a holiday party that evening. If you’re feeling tired and need re-energized, just go to Publix and grab a Java Monster! You’ll be enjoying a nice treat and caffeinating at the same time. It’s a win-win situation!
