Here's one that I make, which is loosely based upon several recipies previously posted to BikeForums. I call it Landstander's Own gee-I-hope-this-doesn't-suck Sport Mix.
- 2 quarts water
- 1/4 packet suger-free (not unsweetened) Kool-Aid (approx. 7.5g)
- 1 Tbsp honey
- 1/8 tsp salt
- 1/8 tsp Morton Lite Salt
- 1/4 mL Nature's Bounty B-Complex liquid vitamin supplement
Stats per 8oz serving (using grape Kool-Aid)
Most of the recipies I've seen used unsweetened Kool-Aid as the base, but I found that didn't work very well for me. By the time I added enough honey and/or sugar to make it palatable, I might as well have just mixed the @#$% stuff full-strength in the first place.
 This is a mixture of table salt and potassium chloride... I use it 'cuz we already have some, plus I'm too cheap to waste that dollar!
Basically, I want to end up with a 3:1 ratio between the two components.
 This was the only liquid B-complex supplement I could find at my local drugstore. Feel free to make any appropriate substitutions, or even omit it entirely.
