I don't drink "recovery" drinks per se. I drink water and Gatorade and chocolate milk and Perpetuum and Mountain Dew, though.

Gatorade and tequila, the sportsman's margarita. Salt the rim for added electrolytes.

Gin and Tonic.

The tonic should contain quinine.

Quinine is very effective for preventing cramps.

The gin is effective for something, I just can't remember what...

Not always, but: milk and Gatorade.

A scoop of Gatorade powder in a tall glass of milk, mix, drink before it curdles.

I dunno why. Sometimes coming in from a long ride that's all I can think about.

For a short one hour training ride? Nothing. Just water.
For a three hour or longer ride? I usually eat something like a PB&J. And drink more water.

I think you meant cramps! I'm partial to beer when I need something to recover, and usually just cool off outside with the rest of the water in my water bottle.

Summer? What is this summer thing you refer to? Hasn't really made an appearance in my neck of the woods. Couple of teaser days only. To answer the question though, water is what I prefer.

ummmm Beer! Preferably something from New Belgium Brewery, or a local brew pub.
