Sports Drink do it at home

While reading Bikeradar's archive news,  I stumbled on an article on how to make your own Sports Drink which is published on April 2010. Although its an old article it is very interesting. To make a sports drink all we need is water, sugar and salt. There are 2 methods mentioned that is using table sugar and fruit sugar to make 1 liter of drink.

Table sugar 
1) 60 - 80gm of sugar.
2) 1/2 teaspoon of salt.
3)Some sugar free cordial and topping up with water to make 1 liter.

Fruit sugar
1) 400 - 600 mls of fruit juice.
2) add water to dilute until arrive at 1 ltr.
3) 1/2 teaspoon of salt.

The article also mentions using fruit juice is better compare to glucose only as fruit sugar is easier to be absorbed. Thus this will lead to better performance.
