How do I mimic that energy drink taste for my homemade Sparks?

I'd like to make an alcoholic energy drink. How do I get that Sparks/Red Bull flavor? I'd prefer to use ingredients that are available in my kitchen/supermarket, but would buy specific things online if necessary.

The emphasis of this question is on taste. For example, if taurine does not contribute to Sparks's flavor, then I'm not interested in it. I plan on putting anhydrous caffeine and vodka into the drink and I'd like to know what ingredients give energy drinks that tart, citrusy, artificial taste.
The only relevant page I could find via google was this one
, which doesn't mention quantities or proportions.
