1/4 cup hibiscus flowers, brewed in 4 cups water
1/2 tsp regular iodized salt
1/2 tsp light salt
2 cups tropical juice blend (~50% juice, 50% real-sugar water)

Put all ingredients in a big pitcher, dilute with about an equal amount water or more. This is on the salty side, because I sweat salty. The use of juice that isn't 100% juice is intentional -- I had been doing some 100% juice and some sugar water before, but I found a bunch of tasty juice blends that use real sugar and not HFCS at one of the middle eastern markets near Haymarket.

The hibiscus gives it that fruit-punch flavor and color without being full of chemicals, and makes it taste less diluted than it is.

However, I've mostly been using Skratch Labs drink mix (pineapple flavor) because I'm too lazy to brew iced tea up ahead of time.
