Recipe by Chef Mommie

Easy and convenient. A take along sports drink powder. Mix it up with water from a water fountain or as I prefer, from a spring bottled water source.

The recipe I use is the same ratio of salt & sugar but with the option to use 1/2 c. fresh squeezed OJ instead of kool-aid. It is reallllly good. Also, to mix the whole amount at once I add water to the OJ, salt, and sugar to make 2 litres.
