Just stick to water, its way better for you anyways. If you think gatorade/powerade will help, trust me because it wont. Water is MUCH better for you. It will also make you feel better than drinking any sport drink. The only thing I drink before a show besides water (and of course whiskey, which i use water to balance out the dehydrating effects of alcohol with) is the occasional Red Bull.
You're gonna sit here and tell me that Gatorade, a drink with sugars and electrolytes, is bad for me and not to drink it when I KNOW for a fact it doesn't do anything bad to me, meanwhile you drink whisky (contains ALCOHOL) and balance it out with water ???, and then drink Redbull, which contains about 5 teaspoons of sugar and 80 mg of caffiene (a stimulant), a drug that messes with your pharmacology, especially when you have it combating a depressant (remember that ALCOHOL you drank?) which is bad, mmmmk? Especially when they had been considering taking Red Bull off of the market because of what's happened to people that drink it with Vodka??
Ok man. I'm not going to sit here and argue with you.
