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.
If you want to skip to the recipe, go here.
Step 1: Why to do it
Let's do a quick breakdown of why you shouldn't do this:
- You can get perfectly good water from the tap. The stuff you get in the store is just coming from someone else's tap anyway.
- If your tap water tastes bad, get a filter. It'll pay for itself, trust me.
- It takes a lot of gas to move all that heavy fluid around the country. More waste and more emissions.
- Even if you don't care about the wasting of fuel and the extra emissions, do you really want to pay for it?
By the way, you aren't drinking bottled water either, right? There's just no good reason for doing that unless you're too lazy to chill water by either putting it in the fridge or adding ice and that would just be sad.
