Even though energy drinks are alcohol free in their ads, some contain a low ethanol concentration that could give a false positive. Although this is rare, it sometimes happens.
If your PO (probation officer) passes this to the prosecutor and then they file a motion to revoke probation, then the following can happen: after a hearing, the court
will (a) believe you and dismiss the motion, (b) not believe you but give you a second chance, (c) not believe you and order additional requirements such as classes, more frequent tests, an extension or probation, or, (d) not believe you and incarcerate you.
What someone in your situation may wish to do is - IF THE PO MAKES AN ISSUE OUT OF THIS - to see whether or not this can be handled without them alerting the prosecutor.
If not, then one may wish to argue that this was indeed a false positive from the energy drink, and hope that the Court believes you.
