These drinks (containing both alcohol and caffeine) are controversial, but the controversy and challenges do not seem to have slowed the rate of new product introductions. Here is a list of more than 180 TTB-approved alcohol beverage products containing caffeine.

A large percentage of the products on this list were approved since the fall of Sparks and Tilt.
