Yes, and it is quite palatable.

SWMBO refers to these drinks as 'lemon flavoured sweat'.
She has a point.

If you try to buy it, note that it's "Dioralyte".

It's a dehydration treatment.

What flavour did he use?

I didn't think it was designed for taste, although I see on the Aventis website
that one now gets a couple of flavours in addition to the original
lashings-of-salt-and-sugar flavour.

PS Uurgh.

If you've ever tried to get a toddler to drink Dioralyte, you'll know it
*ought* to be formulated to taste OK. Paediatricians tell me if young
kid is *really* dehydrated, they will drink it.

Hopefully, a riding cyclist doesn't get quite so bad.

It tastes UAB, as they'd say in the Shed.
