As a sports drink, I understand why you would want to add the large amount of water, or even if you sipped on it all day. For a morning drink, I'd just add a bit. Loved the taste of the honey in the drink. I drank it first think in the morning for a quick pick me up instead of caffeine. Thanks for sharing!

This is delicious and refreshing.The slight saltiness makes it interesting-like what Gatorade SHOULD taste like.I have to agree with other reviewers that this is too watered down though.I used about half of the water,but I can see making it with all the water if I was drinking this like a sports drink.I will definitely make this again and will even try to convert a few people I know who are addicted to Gatorade.:) .

This is really good and refreshing. It is almost like recipe#412032 but is more pleasant to drink. I frothed ours in a blender in order to mix in the creamed pasteurised honey I had to use, but I know the health benefits of raw are exceptionally better and will make this with it when I get some asap, I freshly squeezed juice from oranges, and did use spring water and sea salt. I will make this often especially when pregnant. Made for Veggie Swap 31 ~ February 2011.
