Cougar Energy Double Shot

Discontinued? This item may no longer be available.

Cougar Energy Shot is an energy shot made specifically for women, and a certain type of women at that! Cougar is a sugar-free mix made out of numerous natural extracts from fruit, tea, and various plants, which makes it stand out as a very healthy alternative to other shots. With a bottle plastered in lipstick prints and pink, it leaves me wondering.... will girls go wild for Cougar? Will guys even want to touch them?


Cougar is offered in both a regular white bottle and a black “double shot” bottle, with the latter having 50mg more caffeine and virtually the same taste. Cougar tastes “ok”. You can absolutely taste the extracts in this, but it seems some don't mix with one another. What you get is a smooth, semi-sweet fruity concoction that's alright on the taste buds, but it's not something to be downed for the taste alone. I gave a few to my friends and some of them enjoyed it a lot but some did not. As with many artificially sweetened beverages, this has a typical sucralose aftertaste.


Cougar is definitely a healthy energy shot, with numerous natural extracts and a healthy dose of biotin, B-vitamins, pantothenic acid, inositol, choline, and niacin. It may not have the complete amino-acid, vitamin, and mineral profile of other common energy drinks, but it definitely makes up for it in the sheer variety of extracts used. Green tea, aloe vera, pomegranate, and many more unique fruit additives make up these feminine shots.


With both types of the shot, the energy boost came on gradually and felt “clean”, with no jitters or otherwise nasty side-effects. I felt both energized and focused without the usual caffeine edge. I could set my mind to concentrate very easily, which came in handy for studying some tough material. There was barely any crash to speak of. Cougar is a shot that has healthy and energizing characteristics, with only a satisfactory taste. Some may like it and some definitely won't – if they can fix the taste, we could see a winner in the hands of women (and maybe even guys!) who love energy drinks. Reviewed by JD
