Homemade Salty "Margarita" Trail Runners Drink

Is this for real?! Well, ...maybe. :) If you are wild and crazy like that, you could add some tequila. Heck, I ran a marathon with a guy who chugged a beer, kept it down and finished just fine. But, otherwise, this virgin margarita has sea salt for sweat replacement and to keep you drinking, potassium, calcium and magnesium to balance your electrolytes, water for the obvious and limes for taste! I also added agave nectar not only to sweeten the drink, just like a margarita mix, but to add some calories for energy. It's all natural, home made and works on a hot, summer run!

Recipe: Amy's Salty Margarita Runners Drink
  • 22 oz. (650 mL) Hydration Bottle
  • Whole Foods Electrolyte Enhanced Water
  • 1 Lime (2-4 slices, to taste)
  • Sea Salt (2-3 dashes, to taste)
  • Organic Lime Juice (Optional, 1 Tblsp.)
  • Agave, Honey or Sugar (1-2tsp, to taste)
Shake well & best chilled before run!
