This recipe is quite similar to the <About.com> sport drink recipes. I wanted to make a larger quantity & put my own ideas into it. Go to their website for other ideas on similar recipes. See flavoring variations below.


  1. Fill 1 gal shakable jug 3/4 way with cold water.
  2. Add sugar, salt & the lime for the flavoring.
  3. Shake & mix vigorously.
  4. Now add the remaining cold water to make 1 gallon total.
  5. Shake & mix again.
  6. Put in fridge & serve cold which usually takes about an hour. I put this chill time in under "cooking time".
  7. Flavoring variations, omit the lime juice & add one of the following: 3/4 cup lemon juice concentrate or 3/4 cup frozen orange juice concentrate or 2 packets unsweetened Kool-Aid (.13 oz each).
