I have not tried this recipe. The recipe is from Cornell Cooperative Extension. This has all the benefits of a sports drink, and is less expensive. You can use lemon juice for the orange juice.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1 tablespoon orange juice concentrate
  • 7 12 ounces cold water


  1. Dissolve 1 tablespoon of sugar and a pinch of salt in a tablespoon of orange juice concentrate.
  2. Add 7.5oz of cold water.
  3. Mix and drink.

This stuff is fantastic. I've been using it to rehydrate after having the stomach flu. I just used regular orange juice, but doubled the amount. Thanks for the easy recipe !
