SONIC® Drive-In is the Ultimate Drink Stop® with thousands of unique drink options, and SONIC is now bringing fans a new sippable way to add a fizzy boost to their day with the introduction of SONIC® Rechargers with Red Bull®.* The refreshing new drinks come in three fruity flavors and are available now at SONIC locations nationwide.

The first new beverage platform to be added to the SONIC menu since 2019, SONIC Rechargers with Red Bull offer an invigorating way to perk up a midday slump or fuel a fun-packed weekend. The SONIC Rechargers lineup features three fizzy, craveable flavors – sweet Dragon Fruit, bold Blood Orange and refreshing Twisted Lime – all combined with the energy of Red Bull® and poured over the iconic SONIC nugget ice.

“At SONIC, we’re the experts on drinks and we pride ourselves in constantly introducing fun and unique beverages that fans can’t find anywhere else,” said Mackenzie Gibson, Vice President of Culinary & Menu Innovation at SONIC. “We’ve done it again with SONIC Rechargers with Red Bull, offering a brand-new way to recharge while exciting your taste buds as they’re hit with a perfect balance of fizz and bold fruity flavor.”

In addition to the new SONIC Rechargers, SONIC is expanding its burger menu with two flavorful-packed cheeseburgers.

  • The new Hickory BBQ Cheeseburger is layered with bold and tangy Hickory BBQ sauce, melty American cheese, diced onions, crinkle-cut pickles, crisp lettuce and creamy mayo on a toasted bakery bun.
  • The Garlic Butter Bacon Cheeseburger is back after being introduced as a limited time offering in 2022. Perfect for garlic lovers, the returning cheeseburger comes topped with creamy garlic butter, American cheese, crispy bacon, mayo, and grilled onions on a toasted bakery bun.
