The Last Bottle of Club Mate

We mourn the passing of the Club Mate and a cloud hangs over our hackerspace.

    When you are done mourning the last bottle and have come to acceptance of its passing… why not try and synthesize a similar drink yourselves?

    Instead of yerba mate extract and pure caffeine, you could probably get away with some Cruz de Malta yerba mate and loose tea leaves. This might be a good opportunity for a temperature-regulated hotplate. After brewing, filter the liquid, add just enough sugar and store. To add carbonation, perhaps buy one of those old-timey seltzer bottles.

    At the very least, this looks like it could be a good project, regardless of the outcome.
