Emergency Drinks are Essential for Your Supplies

23 Jul, 2015

Food, water, and shelter are essential to any emergency preparedness plan. But are there additional items to have on hand in case of a disaster or emergency situation?

We think emergency drinks aren't receiving enough buzz. In addition to water storage, why not add a variety of emergency drink powders to your list? They offer some great health benefits including the all important electrolytes, nutrients, vitamins, minerals, and energy! Plus, they will add a pop of flavor to help your stored water taste better!

Here's a list of a few drink-based items you may want to consider adding to your emergency supplies:

  • Coffee & Tea
  • Broths & Bouillon
  • Electrolyte Drink Mix Powders
  • MRE Beverage Bases

Many preppers also recommend hoarding some Vodka (not only as a "morale booster" but it can be used for cooking, cleaning, and has medicinal uses as well).


Coffees and teas are great for energy (caffeine), and can provide that additional "boost" needed in an emergency situation. Herbal teas are also good to have on hand — some teas provide calming effects, some have medicinal value, and green tea is a natural probiotic for digestive health!

You might consider Taster's Choice brand coffee sticks, available at Amazon.com. They're inexpensive, and it's better than no coffee at all!

And as for those herbal teas, pick your favs to keep on hand in your back-up supplies. Favorite brand? Favorite blend? Favorite tea variety? The choice is yours! Herbal Teas at Amazon.com.


Salty and rich in vitamins and minerals, broths and bouillon can aid in intestinal distress, may boost the immune system, and add flavor to rice and noodle dishes. You might consider Bare Bones Instant Broth, available at Amazon.com.


Electrolyte replacement is a necessity in any survival situation! Plus, they offer vitamins, minerals, and great flavor. Stay hydrated! Perhaps you would enjoy one of Peak Refuel's Re-Energizing Drink Sticks? Available in three different flavors @ TheEpicenter.com!


Additional calories, great flavor, important carbohydrates, and electrolytes are found in MRE Beverage Base mixes. You should be able to find most of these items at your local supermarket, and we also have MRE Beverage & Drink Mixes here @ TheEpicenter.com. Stock up!
