Aquarius Water made with Sports Drink Powder

Deadly sweltering heat still continues here in Japan. In fact, this year the days with temperatures 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 preventive measure against heat strokes, today I purchased a certain product at a supermarket near my house.

But if you make the Aquarius in the same way as the company recommends, the resulting isotonic drink has almost the same concentration as the bottled Aquarius water sold in grocery stores.
