Warning Don't drink unless you're of legal age. Drink responsibly, and never drink and drive. Step 1: Know Four Loko's contents Know what's in the original Four Loko. Each 23.5-ounce can is 12 percent alcohol; equivalent to about 6 cans of beer. Four Loko also contains caffeine along with guarana and taurine -- 2 common active ingredients in energy drinks. A can of Four Loko has the potency of a 12 oz. cup of very strong coffee and contains 660 calories and 60 grams of sugar. Tip Four Loko's manufacturer announced it would stop delivering its caffeinated version of the drink beginning in December 2010. Step 2: Pace yourself Don't feel pressured to consume the entire can. 23.5 ounces of a beverage containing alcohol and caffeine isn't wise to drink in one sitting. Show self-restraint and pace yourself. Step 3: Eat up Like all alcoholic beverages, Four Loko shouldn't be consumed on an empty stomach. Eating high-carb or fatty foods can help slow down the absorption of alcohol in your system. Tip If munching on salty snacks like pretzels or chips makes you thirsty, quench your thirst with water -- not more Four Loko. Step 4: Dilute it If you crave the fruity Four Loko taste but worry about its potency, try serving it on ice and diluting it with seltzer water, soda, or juice. Step 5: Try a Four-mosa Try a Four-mosa. Mix equal parts orange juice and any Four Loko flavor in a small glass. Stir gently and add a lime wedge for garnish. Enjoy! Did You Know? Four Loko launched in 2008 and gets its name from its 4 main ingredients: caffeine, taurine, guarana and alcohol.
