Back during the advent of Snapple elements, I locked onto Lightning as my favorite flavor. For those of you who have known me for years remember how I would not go anywhere without some Lightning nearby. It was a black tea mixed with ginseng, yerba mate, and schizandra berry extract. It was absoluely delicious, it gave me caffeine, and it also settled my stomach if it felt sour. My mom and grandmother used to give me yerba mate black tea when I had stomach aches, so it was like a remedy mass-produced and adored by all. Unfortunately, Snapple stopped making like six of its elements and Lightning was one of them. It sucks ass.

A while ago, though, found like two bottles in Aptos and bought them for me. I drank one like a year ago. and I’m drinking the last one today. Why? Because I craved Lightning so much today for some reason.. and it was just awesome that I had not yet drank my last bottle. Now, of course, I have none, but I got to enjoy the taste one last time, I guess. I should be able to make this, shouldnt I?
