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.
Aquarius Sports Drink Powder from Japan
Actually, what I bought this time is this Aquarius sports drink powder. Basically, this product seems to be only available in Japan, but nowadays, you can purchase it on Amazon.com too.
How to Make Aquarius Water with the Powder
With these white granules and cold water, as shown below, you can easily prepare Aquarius water whenever you want to have it.
|1||First, put 1 pack (48 grams) of the Aquarius powder into a water bottle|
|2||Then, pour 1000 ml of chilled water|
|3||If desired, add in some ice cubes|
|4||By shaking the bottle well, dissolve the sports drink powder in the cold water|
Although the maker Coca-Cola Japan recommends making this Aquarius drink with 1 pack (48 grams) of the powder and 1 liter of water, you can adjust the taste to your preference by adjusting the amount of water.
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.
Lastly, let’s see the nutrition facts label on the back of the bag. Based on that, this Aquarius sports drink powder (48 grams) has
- Calories: 186 kcal
- Protein: 0.5 g

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