I was using less water at first so it would be faster to choke down. I've mixed it with a couple different flavors of Gatorade, my biggest success with that being the light blue G2. The other day I mixed it with more water than instructed. Encountered, unsurprisingly, less grit and a more diluted taste. I think I found the sweet spot for water.
Honestly, taste is the only thing I feel is wrong with the pink lemonade. I really do love the product. Trust me, I'd let you know if I didn't
