Isotonic Guinness

At work today after discussing various nutritional items including what multi-pack deals I had purchased recently, I came up with tonight's post exercise recovery drink of Isotonic Guinness, which is made from FCP approved products.

Isotonic Guinness

I went for the Tractor Boys blue, officially known as Powerade Ion4 Berry and Tropical flavour which about 100ml was added to a settled (expertly poured) 440ml of Draught Guinness. So it contains four of the minerals from the Powerade (sodium, potassium, magnesium, calcium) plus the nutritional components from the Guinness.

There was a bit of the blue colouring of the Guinness white head where the sports drink was poured in.

You could not taste the Powerade that much, I think at least a 50/50 ratio would be required due to the naturally strong taste of Guinness but hopefully it will help me recover from a tough few training days.

I think this would need to be repeated numerous time to scientifically prove if it aided the recovery process.
