Though Cheribundi is more of a post-workout treat than a mid-exercise fuel up, we're still big fans. Studies show that drinking tart cherry juice after a sweat session helps restore muscle strength and relieve soreness. The full-body version is a calorie bomb and a lot to take in right after a workout, but Light has a totally sufficient 17 grams of sugar per 8-ounce bottle and stevia to offset tartness. It also has 260 mg of potassium to help with hydration and no unnecessary additives. And later in the evening, when you're rested and recovered, imbibe a little Cheribundi Light mixed with a bit of vodka – it makes a smashing pair. [$2 for an 8-ounce bottle; cheribundi.com]
