Reporting from Los Angeles and Washington - Alcoholic energy drinks, marketed under provocative names such as Evil Eye, Max Fury and Slingshot Party Gel, have quickly gained a foothold among younger drinkers.

Now the producers of those beverages have a new, perhaps unwanted audience. The Food and Drug Administration on Friday requested proof from the companies that their products, which blend caffeine and alcohol, are safe.

If alcoholic beverages are "safe", and energy drinks are "safe", then the combination of the two are "safe". It isn't something I'd ever drink, because I don't like either of the two, though caffeinated sodas are fine.

I don't drink any of the energy drinks but I'm not sure how a drink with alcohol (a depressant) in it can be considered an "energy" drink....Haven't there been some concerns as to the safety of these energy drinks anyway?

Asking if anything that includes alcohol is safe is kind of a loaded question isn't it?
