Classic beverages have a certain form/function coalescence. Makes sense that a bitter shot of espresso (or four) will jolt you into wakefulness; a neon, sugary sports drink will propel your last treadmill mile; and a voluptuous red wine will wash down a plate of hearty braised ribs.

Drank: "Slow Your Roll" may very well be new to this lexicon. It's a carbonated, grape-flavored "anti-energy" drink. Drank is spiked with melatonin, valerian root and rose hips and comes in a pretty purple can.

The press release explains, "every aspect of this calming drink was inspired by today’s popular hip hop artists who embrace the much sought-after hip hop lifestyle that encourages people to capture a stress-free state of mind." So if all that caffeine has you buzzed, slow your roll, drink a Drank. It is reportedly good with vodka.
