    TommyGato's Note:

    We Googled Gatorade after realizing how much the cost of this product adds up. This is the result of much trial and error. The envelopes with non Kool-Aid drink mixes (like Wylers) are usually more like Gatorade. Kool-Aid seems to have its own distinct flavor. I often double the recipe to make a gallon jug. Fructose and citric acid might require going to a good health food store or brewing supply co. but yield a product more like the original. It is very good with the substitutions mentioned if you like the lemon flavor.

      My husband prefers the Gatorade "Rain" when we buy it at the store, so I have been using the measurements for the recipe as given but adding enough water to make a full gallon. It is very tasty, very close to the real thing, and we are saving at least $10.00 a week. I love this recipe!!!

      I tried this recipe with corn syrup and little bit more sugar than shown in the recipe.... and it actually turned out really really nice. I've been making a lot of this stuff lately. :D

      I really like this recipe. The citric acid gives it just the right tang and I used corn syrup instead of granular fructose. The berry unsweetened koolaid gave it a great flavor and I believe I just saved at least $5.00
