Store-bought sports drinks are formulated so the salt is emulsified, meaning it’s evenly distributed throughout the drink. Dissolving salt in hot water creates the same effect. Some salt may still settle to the bottom, so shake before sipping.
16 oz. orange juice
12 oz. cold water
4 oz. boiling water
1/4 tsp. salt
1/2 cup ice cubes
Stir salt into boiling water until dissolved. Add orange juice, water and ice cubes. Mix well.
