Are there any recommended substitutions for the energy drink or cider in Iron Spice?

If you're looking to substitute the energy drink, you can choose another brand with a similar flavor profile or even a non-caffeinated, fruity carbonated beverage for a less intense version. For the cider, a light beer or a non-alcoholic apple cider can be used as alternatives, depending on your preference for alcohol content and taste.
