Sports drinks are awesome. They have electrolytes and sugar and quench that thirst. Gatorade's pioneered the field and is now everywhere, but why pay them a ton for what is just salty sugary water with artificial flavoring?
So stop dropping all that money on the glorified bottled water and make some on your own! You could end up paying up to 90% less.
While this isn't a perfect Gatorade recipe that will taste exactly like Gatorade since matching their artificial flavors is impossible, it will be just as effective.
Did I mention that this stuff has electrolytes? Oh, man, does it ever have electrolytes.
