What is a Dutch Bros Rebel?
A "Rebel" is a beverage that you can order at any Dutch Bros. location. You will find these stores all over the western part of the USA. Rebel is a cold energy beverage that will keep you going throughout the day or give you that afternoon pick-me-up that we all need!
A Rebel can be customized to the flavors that you prefer, but they also have a few drink flavors that they recommend go well together. You can choose either a classic Red Bull or a sugar-free Red Bull; that is up to you!

What do I need to make this fruity drink?
Red Bull: is used as the base of this beverage. You're welcome to use your favorite Red Bulls, and you can use other energy drink flavors as well, just keep an eye on the fl oz in the drink. I am using a sugar-free Red Bull for this recipe.
Flavored Syrup: gives this drink a unique flavor that is customizable to you. Do you want to taste like you're at the beach? Add lime and coconut. Craving a fruity flavor? Try adding raspberry, strawberry, and cherry flavorings to your drink. I am using sugar-free strawberry syrup in my Rebel.
Ice: is added to keep your drink cold while you're enjoying it. If it's a hot day outside, use thicker ice cubes as these will not melt as quickly, small ice may melt and water your drink down.
How do I make a Dutch Bros Rebel?
- Pour the can of Red Bull into a tall glass full of ice.
- Top with your syrup of choice, stir and enjoy!
How much syrup to use in a Rebel?
Honestly, this is a total personal preference. I recommend using 2oz, but you can customize it to your liking. Keep in mind, that if you use too much, the drink will become overly sweet. I also like to use a higher quality syrup as the flavor is stronger without having to use more syrup.
What variations can I make of a Dutch Bros Rebel drink?
There are so many different variations at Dutch Bros that you can try.
In my opinion, some of the best rebel flavors are:
Electric Berry: Lime and Blue Raspberry
Aftershock: Strawberry, Blackberry, Raspberry and Lime
Double Rainbro: Strawberry, Peach and Coconut
Shark Bite or Shark Attack: Blue Raspberry, Coconut, with a lime and pomegranate float.
You can also make your own using your favorite syrups.
Different Syrups Used By Dutch Bros
Dutch Bros uses many different flavors. Some of the most popular are blue raspberry syrup, blackberry syrup, peach syrup, and coconut. Have fun mixing and matching flavors until you find your favorite flavor combination, creating your perfect drink. There are also plenty of sugar-free options if you want to make this a sugar-free version! I really like using Torani syrups, which you can find pretty much everywhere.
What energy drinks can I put in a Dutch Bros Rebel?
A classic Dutch Bros Rebel contains a Red Bull. You can either choose a regular Red Bull or a sugar-free one; that is completely up to you.
You can also swap your RedBull out with a Monster Energy drink or a Rockstar Energy drink. They both have similar flavors to a Red Bull. However, keep in mind the size difference between the two. There will be more fluid ounces in the Monster and Rockstar.
What is the amount of caffeine in a Dutch Bros Rebel energy drink?
How much caffeine is in a rebel drink depends on which energy drink you use. An 8.4 fl oz has 80 mg of caffeine, whereas a 16 fl oz can of Monster has 160 gm. Keep in mind that the Monster is twice the size of the Red Bull, so in general, most of the caffeine content is the same. Around 80mg for 8 fl oz and 160 for a while 16 fl oz.
