Do You Drink Sports Drinks When You're Not Working Out?

Do You Drink Sports Drinks When You're Not Working Out?

During a race or intense workout, I really, really enjoy drinking Gatorade, especially red Gatorade. When I'm not working out, I can't stand the stuff. My best friend, on the other hand, absolutely loves Gatorade. She loves it so much, in fact, that as soon as a new flavor comes out in her local grocery store, she buys a couple bottles and has a tasting party. Seriously.

Sports drinks are actually engineered for sipping during workouts every 10 to 15 minutes to maintain your blood volume. In my mind, Gatorade, Powerade, and the like are made for working out, not for sipping. I try to avoid caloric drinks as it is, and don't enjoy the taste of sports drinks enough to seek them out when I'm not working out. What about you?
