I mix it two servings each per 24oz bottle. It's very easy to modulate the strength to your liking as it's a light flavor.
Gotcha. I usually go with about ~3/4 scoop of Accelerade per 24oz bottle of water. I'll play with the Tailwind to see what I like. I really prefer straight water, but when it heats up, I need the salt and the calories to get through the ride.
