My husband works outside in the heat for 10 to 12 hours a day; part of their safety regulations is that they not only drink water but also drink some type of sports drink to get their electrolytes and salt replenished. It is easy to get sick if don’t replenish these vitamins and minerals due to all the sweating. However, the cost of these drinks can be outrageous and don’t usually fit into our budget due to buying a case or two a week. I started making homemade sports drinks that incorporate the nutritional aspects needed, but for the price of pennies. This homemade sports drink is an easy way to keep different flavored beverages handy and to meet the needs of different family members.
