Well Gin and Tonic was invented as a replenisher... ya right.
Personally, I believe that fruit juice is a better bet for electrolyte
and mineral replenishment than flavored salt water, containing a variety
of compounds. I frequently serve watered-down chilled orange juice and
that gets slurped up faster than the Ade of the Gator!
Torani and Da Vinci put out sugar-free flavored syrups, all sweetened
with Splenda. That makes me happeeee! These are intended for fancy
coffee drinks or Italian sodas with seltzer water, but you can do so
much more with them.
