Um. Carbonating machine. Cheap. Water. Salt. Fresh lemon juice. No-brainer. :neutral:
You can live here and have a great life and not be the least bit into living the local life. Clowns will try to diss you for it saying you gotta get down with the program, but fuck em, treat this place like a buffet and yous be on a diet. Take what you want and nothing extra, slam those oysters, but leave the bread sticks and dinner rolls behind. - Deuce Dropper

I'm much more of a nasty rotter in real life, especially with vapid or vacuous verbiage from the ill read & intellectually challenged. - TheGingerMan

I mean all they really have to add is water, sugar, salt, flavoring, etc. to make sports drink. I don't get the logic here.



To make it look cloudy (suspending particles) and have a 'smooth' mouth feel ...

Yes, the plasticizers are often added to give things a "creamy taste" :(

Sports drinks...in some ways are better than what I am talking about because they have other electrolytes;but they also have sugar -usually a lot! What I am talking about is only water, salt, co2 and maybe some no-sugar flavoring, like lemon or lime.

Buy some club soda (aka soda water, sparkling water, or seltzer) and add salt and a squirt of lemon juice.

Buy a personal carbonation machine. You can buy the syrups I think or just don't add any, and add salt instead.

Look up Sodastream International for more info
