Well, here’s an interesting article from TIME,

It’s common knowledge that drinking water is the best way to stay hydrated, but what if you want something other than water? When we sweat, we lose lactate, amino acids, fats, and sodium, but the director of the Human Performance Laboratory at the University of Connecticut says,

“Virtually no studies have shown benefits of sport drinks or carbohydrate-containing beverages unless you’re exercising continuously for more than 50 or 60 minutes.”

So if you are very active and you don’t want water, what should you drink? Ben Desbrow, with Griffith University’s School of Allied Health Sciences says,

“Milk is an ideal beverage. It is well retained and is a great source of protein, carbohydrate, vitamins and minerals.”

If you’re not into chugging milk after a tough workout, another recent study found the type of beverage you’re drinking to re-hydrate doesn’t really matter as long as you’re drinking it with a few bites of food.

Guess I’ll try milk next time I work out.
