Full Answer

The drink-by date on bottles of Gatorade are not necessarily expiration dates. Instead, they are the last date the manufacturer guarantees freshness and flavor. To ensure that Gatorade is good to drink past the date on the bottle, store it in a cool, dark place, and ensure that the integrity of the seal is not compromised.
