Club Mate Recipes

Club Mate is a popular German caffeinated carbonated drink with mate-extract. Since 1924, it has gained more and more popularity. Enhanced by Yerba Mate, the South American caffeine-rich herbal tea, Club Mate is known for its kick without the crash. The soft drink contains half the amount of sugar compared to other popular energy drinks, like Red Bull or Monster, but double the caffeine of a regular Coke or coffee. Popularized in Europe (especially Germany) by the hacker scene, rave culture, electro-pop and digital gaming, Club Mate has become a “cult drink”. Club Mate was prominently featured in the movie “The Social Network” (about the beginnings of Facebook).



Produced in Bavaria at a local beer brewery, Club Mate combines well with rum, gin, vodka, tequila, and more, for delicious cocktails and mixed drinks. Check out our list below for some uniquely invigorating Club Mate cocktails.
