I am looking for a recipe for homemade Gatorade? Could I use unsweetened Kool Aid powder to provide a nice flavor?

I was talking to a friend today and she said her hubby only drank water and Gatorade, but complained that Gatorade was too high to buy. I told her I'd see if anyone knew how to make a good substitute for it. Surely there's someone with a recipe. Thanks in advance.
Mix together, this equals the electrolyte replacement found in many popular drinks on the market.

Homemade Gatorade #93652
We Googled Gatorade after realizing how much the cost of this product adds up. This is the result of much trial and error. The envelopes with non Kool-Aid drink mixes (like Wylers) are usually more like Gatorade. Kool-Aid seems to have its own distinct flavor. I often double the recipe to make a gallon jug. Fructose and citric acid might require going to a good health food store or brewing supply co., but yield a product more like the original. It is very good with the substitutions mentioned if you like the lemon flavor.
3 minutes prep time
Place all ingredients in a large pitcher or jug and stir or shake until well mixed. Chill and keep refrigerated until used.
Note: Adjust sweetness to taste by adding (or in rare cases reducing) a little sugar since drink mixes can vary. (08/10/2005)
We just buy the powdered Gatorade (or even the store brand). Even the name brand is much less expensive than purchasing it in bottles. My husband even likes it less than full "strength" so it's even cheaper to make. (08/10/2005)

Here is a very simple and very good recipe for MYO Gatorade
We make this and pour into old Gatorade bottles. It's quite good. (08/12/2005)
To make one quart:
Mix together and enjoy. The trace mineral drops will provide all you need for the day. (01/19/2009)

All right it takes 1 can of orange juice, 2 Tbsp. of lemon, 1 Tbsp. of lime, 3/4 tsp. salt, then water. This is for 2 liters or 10 Tbsp. of sugar and 3/4 tsp Morten lite salt. This is funny and one Kool aid packet of your choice for flavor, then water. This is also for 2 liters. and you are very welcome. (02/06/2009)
