Thinking about trying out Kin Euphorics? I recently got a chance to try out some more of their lineup, and what to share! In this Kin Euphorics review, get a comprehensive look inside their product lineup, including what adaptogens and nootropics are, if they work, and how they taste.
After tasting more of the lineup, Kin Spritz is still my favorite Kin drink.
Whether you’re looking for something to help you relax after a long day or something that will give you an energy boost, Kin has created a beverage for it.
Keep reading for more information on each product, what makes them unique, and what they taste like, from Lightwave to High Rhode and the newest flavors.
Kin Lightwave is the perfect drink for those who are looking for a mild euphoric experience. It contains chamomile and lavender, which work together to soothe the mind and body.
This drink is also caffeine-free, making it a great choice for those who want to relax without any added stimulation.
Kin Lightwave tastes a little creamy, and it’s similar to drinking a lavender camomile tea with a splash of milk and vanilla.
Lavender-vanilla, passionflower, and smoked sea salts, are combined with ingredients meant to calm the mind and help you overcome stress, feeling more peaceful.
Reishi Mushroom helps to boost the adrenal function and corrects stress-related body responses. L-Theanine promotes alpha-wave production and alters brain waves, reducing anxiety while also providing mental and physical balance. L-Tryptophan stimulates the production of serotonin, which is a neurotransmitter that regulates mood and promotes feelings of wellbeing.

Kin High Rhode
Kin High Rhode was created for those who are looking for something stronger than the other two options. It contains cayenne pepper and maca root, both of which provide a more intense taste than other Kin drinks. Plus, these ingredients are associated with a feeling of energy and awakening.
High Rhode reminds me a little of a Negroni, mainly because it was designed to replace an alcoholic aperitif. The flavor isn’t the same, but the spirit is similar. Read more about Kin High Rhode and the mocktails I tested it in.

The Kin spritz is the lightest of all the Kin drinks, making it a great choice for those who want something refreshing. I like to call it Roma in a can because it’s a great non-alcoholic Aperol Spritz substitute.
This drink is also caffeinated, making it perfect for boosting your energy levels when you need them most. If you tend to drink coffee toward the end of the day, this might be a nice replacement happy hour beverage for you.
The bright, herbal aroma of this drink is due to a combination of herbs that have been proven to improve concentration. The ginger root, bitters, and citrus fruits combine for an uplifting scent that is created to boost your mood and help you focus – work lunch spritz, anyone?
The base for this drink is created with white grape juice concentrate. See nutrition comparison at the bottom of the page.
Rhodiola Rosea is supposed to regulate cortisol, the stress hormone that stimulates fight or flight, allowing you to get a sense of calm. 5-HTP increases serotonin, which may be used to improve your inner confidence and charm while also stimulating neurotransmitters that control mood, pleasure, and reward. GABA reduces calms the nervous system.
Kin Spritz has maintained it’s position on my list of best non-alcoholic drinks for Dry January and beyond.

Kin Dream Light
The dream light was designed as a nightcap, for those who want something mild and relaxing. It’s a bit spicy – not hot, but spice-ish with clove, cinnamon and licorice.
The flavor is a bit jarring straight out of the bottle, which might be why mixing it with your favorite milk is recommended. I suggest oat milk, or sticking with the canned Kin Lightwave.
After reading hundreds of reviews, most of those people claim to have improved sleep from drinking Dream Light. It’s possible, given the inclusion of melatonin.
Reishi Mushroom, Melatonin, and L-Tryptophan are a calming combination of adaptogens and nootropics. Melatonin has been known to help regulate circadian rhythm.
Here is your non-alcoholic replacement for canned sparkling rosé. It’s made with carbonated water and white grape juice concentrate, plus about a dozen herbal and fruit extracts.
Kin Bloom tastes like strawberries and grapes, with a hint of rosemary. This is a lightly sweet summer beverage to keep around.
Adaptogens and nootropics: Schisandra, Damiana, and L-Theanine for clarity and open-heartedness.
Check price for Kin Bloom on Amazon.
Kin Actual Sunshine
I love the name of this Kin drink: Actual Sunshine. If you’re not convinced on herbal remedies and adaptogenic plants, try this one. Actual Sunshine is a functional beverage that’s been created with Vitamin C, D3, Zinc, collagen peptides, and caffeine.
This combo alone has loads of benefits, and no one could argue that trading alcohol for them would be a great start. In addition, turmeric and saffron are meant to provide a brightening optimism.
The flavor is a bit of sweet pineapple and a bit of spice (ginger, cardamom, licorice). It’s a refreshing, feel-good drink.

Where to Buy Kin Euphorics
Kin drinks can be found at Amazon, some online shops, and a random sprinkling of retail stores. Of course, you can also buy direct from Kin Euphorics and set up a subscription.
Here is a great multi pack with the canned Kin Euphorics beverages on Amazon so you can try them all!
What is in Kin Euphorics? All about Adaptogens and Nootropics
Adaptogens are a unique class of herbs that supposedly help the body to “adapt” to stress. They have been used for centuries in traditional medicine, and only recently have they become popular in the Western world.
Nootropics are a newer kind of supplement designed to improve cognitive function. They are often used by students and professionals who need to stay focused and productive for long periods of time. Some same nootropics give a mental boost like caffeine from coffee, but without some of the effects of caffeine.
Do either of these supplements work? The answer is yes- but it’s important to understand how each one works before you start taking them.
The adaptogenic and nootropic properties of ingredients used in Kin drinks have been well documented. The question is, are they potent enough in these products to actually make you feel differently?
First of all, the human brain is the most complicated and powerful organism on the planet, with an unparalleled capacity to change itself based on a variety of circumstances. The condition in which you consume non-alcoholic drinks may very well have a significant impact on your experience. I’m talking about the placebo effect.
This can’t be discounted as a possibility, because who really knows? After reading tons of reviews, the majority of people said they weren’t really sure if they could feel anything, but they enjoyed the drink and the experience, so that has to count for something, right?
Personally, I felt something when drinking lightwave. Could it have been that I was already calm and sleepy when I drank it, or was it the ingredients? Probably both. I drifted off to sleep like a baby, so I can’t say how long it lasted.
This product is an interesting alcohol free option though, especially for someone who tends to decompress at the end of a stressful day with alcohol like a glass of wine.
With the other products, the feeling was less prominent, but I still thought they tasted great and enjoyed my time while drinking them.
Do you actually feel anything from Kin Euphorics?
At first sip, you won’t feel anything different when drinking Kin Euphorics. Many users claim a calming effect after drinking, but you’ll have to see for yourself.
How long does Kin Euphorics last?
How long nootropics and adaptogens last is hard to say, due to our individual responses to natural herbs and nootropics.
Does Kin Euphorics taste good?
There are two types of Kin Euphorics – the already mixed canned drinks like Kin Spritz and Kin Dream Light. Both of these are great tasting, but very differnet from one another.
High Rhode and Lightwave are best in mixed drinks, so the flavor will depend on what you make with them.
How many carbs in Kin Euphorics?
Here is a chart comparing the calories and carbs in each of Kin Euphorics products. These numbers are subject to change at the discretion of Kin Euphorics. Check the packaging for any changes.
Can you drink Kin during pregnancy?
Kin advises you to not consume their products if pregnant or nursing. Some adaptogenic ingredients are known to cause problems during pregnancy, so do not consume them. Please consult your doctor about any unfamiliar ingredients.
Is Kin Euphorics safe?
Deciding if Kin Euphorics is safe depends on a few factors. This is from Kin’s website: “Don’t consume if you’re under 18, breastfeeding, pregnant or may become pregnant, have a medical condition, or are taking SSRIs. Consult your doc if you are unsure if Kin is right for you.”
Final Thoughts on Kin Euphorics
Overall, Kin Euphorics has some really interesting and unique drinks. The jury is still out on the feel-good effects they claim you experience while drinking them.
