With 33 grams of cane sugar per 20-ounce bottle, Golazo is on a par with Gatorade's carb content, yet it has a noticeably less sweet flavor. There's coconut water inside, which also provides potassium, a key electrolyte. We especially liked Jamaica Hibiscus Punch – its soft red hue comes from purple sweet potato and red cabbage juices instead of chemical colorants. Our soccer-playing tester says he's switching to Golazo after it fueled him through a grueling weekend tournament. And although we advise sipping any drink slowly, he slugged Golazo on the fly throughout his games and never cramped up. [$2.39; vivagolazo.com]
