Sports drink before on hot day?

Hey all, I was wondering if drinking a sports drink up to an hour or so before a long run will help on a hot day? I tried holding it in

my hand last year during a long run and it got all fizzy and nasty, plus the only thing I crave during a hot run is water, but I know I need

the elec. because I often get 'salty' arms at the end of a long run during the summer.
