For those of you that say Gatorade is the “Nectar of the Gods,” (ok, I admit, I used to say this), think again. There’s a new kid on the block, and its name is COCONUT WATER. I’ve recently gotten really into it, and it kicks Gatorade’s ass in the categories of hydration, nutrition, taste, and general awesomness.
Coconut water is really a phenomenal beverage. It contains 15x more electrolytes than artificial sports drinks, more potassium than a banana and is all natural and super super hydrating. This is the water that comes out of a coconut when you crack it open – don’t confuse it with coconut milk, which is made from the flesh of a coconut.
And let me put this on the record for all you wild booze-cats out there – coconut water is, officially, the best hangover cure that exists. No joke.
Drink it really cold and then thank me.
