Replace your electrolyte stores with Gnarly Hydrate

Hydration Party

Salt. Sugar. Hydration. The keys to success on a long run and the formula for happiness post long-run, especially on a Saturday summer afternoon. Just in time for Cinco De Mayo and warmer days ahead, Gnarly released two limited-edition flavors of their Hydrate electrolyte powder: Salted Margarita and Lemonade.

The flavors were determined by the fans– Gnarly surveyed nearly 500 customers to hear what the people wanted. Right at the top of the Family Feud board was salted marg, confirming that the entire survey pool were either ultrarunners, or alcoholics, or both.

When life hands you lemons, make them Gnarly

Let’s be real, it’s about time hydration brands started doubling down into the mixed-drink category. Why not replenish electrolytes whilst having a good time? Even better, the new Salted Marg flavor contains 500 mg of sodium per serving, double the amount found in the existing flavors of Hydrate. It’s a perfect formula for replenishing the electrolyte stores after running in the humidor of July (especially here in the Mid-Atlantic), or a great supplement for any of you heavy sweaters out there. 

Gnarly Hydrate also offers B Vitamins that are known to ensure you’re properly digesting and absorbing your nutrients throughout the day, prevent any type of nutrient deficiencies, and help with maximum performance benefits. Plus, they keep the sugar content down with only 4g per serving, making sure you’re getting what you need post-run, without all the junk.

For the record, we have received a batch of the Salted Margarita mix, and can confirm it’s quite delicious and will pair perfectly with the below margarita recipe, which Gnarly was kind enough to send us:

Gnarly Margarita Recipe

  • 2 oz Gnarly Salted Margarita simple syrup: (Mix one part water, one part sugar and one scoop of salted margarita Hydrate. Boil, let cool and sit. For those who are impatient just heat it up in the microwave and mix well)
  • Tequila: Silver or reposado (or mezcal)
  • 1 oz freshly-squeezed lime juice
  • Splash of Grand Marnier (optional)
  • Salted rim (if you’re feeling spicy, trade out the salt with Trader Joe’s chili lime seasoning, trust us on this one)

Get it while it lasts (and double down on the recovery with Gnarly protein powder, which we also love). Here’s to warmer days ahead!
