Default Im sorry...what?

Actually did a double take when saw this and took a picture thinking some poor sod was going to get fired over this misspelling of epic proportions!

Turns out, this IS its real name???!?

First saw this in Thailand about 30 odd years ago, and your exactly right about the name change.

A kind of Gatorade concoction for sports and hangovers. I'm surprised no one has invented a cocktail made with it yet.

It has a sort of mild grapefruit taste which I find quite pleasant. I always make sure we have some in stock if a heavy session is planned. #voiceofexperience
