Homemade Sports Drink
While this lemon-lime hydrator may still be on the market, it sure was a favorite to us as kids. Whether or not it gave us more energy is still up to question, but one thing is for sure; kids back then and even now couldn't get enough of the green stuff. Here's how to make your own version of the drink for less dough, courtesy of One Good Thing by Jilee.
- 1/2 Cup orange juice
- 1/2 Cup granulated sugar
- 1/4 Teaspoon kosher salt
- 1 Tablespoon lemon juice
Add 1/4 cup sugar and 1/4 teaspoon salt (kosher or sea salt) to 1/2 cup hot water. Stir until completely dissolved. Add 1/2 cup orange juice and 1 tablespoon lemon juice to the sugar/salt water.
Add a few ice cubes to each bottle, pour 1/2 of juice mixture into each bottle, then fill the rest of the way with cold water. Give the bottles a shake to allow the ice cubes to cool down the warm water.
