I made Aquarius Water using the Sports Drink Powder
Deadly sweltering heat still continues here in Japan. In fact, this year the days with temperature of 35°c (95°f) or higher are not rare.
Despite that, I plan to have a picnic with my friends tomorrow, so as a preventative measure against heat strokes, today I purchased a certain product at a supermarket near my house.
Aquarius Sports Drink Powder from Japan
What I bought this time is this Aquarius sports drink powder. Basically, this product seems to be only available in Japan, though you can purchase it on Amazon.com too, which is recommended as Amazon’s Choice.
How to Make Aquarius Water with the Sport Drink Powder
With this white powder and cold water, as shown below, you can easily prepare Aquarius water whenever you want to have the sports drink.
|1||Put 1 pack (48g) of the Aquarius powder into a water bottle|
|2||Pour 1000 ml of chilled water into the bottle|
|3||Then, add in some ice cubes|
|4||Dissolve the sport drink powder in the cold water shaking the bottle well|
Although the maker Coca-Cola Japan recommends making this Aquarius drink with 1 pack (48g) of the Aquarius powder and 1 liter of water, you can adjust the taste to your preference by adjusting the amount of water.
When you make the Aquarius in the same way as the company recommends, the isotonic drink has almost the same concentration as the bottled Aquarius water sold in grocery stores.
According to the nutrition facts on the back of the package, this Aquarius sports drink powder (48g) has

Bottled Aquarius water takes up much space in the refrigerator. But with this Aquarius powder, you can reduce a space required for storing, plus whenever you want to drink Aquarius water, you can easily prepare the sports drink.
