Hey Albert Frankenstein, Gatorade is an energy Drink.
Gatorade is a non-carbonated sports drink marketed by the Quaker Oats Company, a division of PepsiCo. Originally made for athletes, it is now commonly consumed as a snack beverage. The drink is intended to rehydrate and to replenish the carbohydrates (in the form of sugars sucrose and glucose) and electrolytes (sodium and potassium salts) depleted during aerobic exercise, especially in warmer climates.
Gatorade was created by Dr. Robert Cade at the University of Florida in 1965 He took it back to UF.
Only a year after its commercial introduction Gatorade was reformulated, as its initial recipe contained the sweetener cyclamate, which was banned by the FDA.
The Gators football team, at the behest of head coach Ray Graves, began using Gatorade officially in 1967 and went on to win their first Orange Bowl title. They beat the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets, whose coach Bud Carson, when asked why they lost, replied: "We didnít have Gatorade. That made the difference." Through his friendship with Graves, Hank Stram, head coach of the Kansas City Chiefs, secured large amounts of Gatorade for his players; the Chiefs attributed their Super Bowl title of the 1969 season to the University of Florida sports drink. 
Marketed with images of dramatically perspiring athletes, the drink became popular with non-athletes, and dietetic and low-sodium versions were added to the Gatorade product lineup.
The Quaker Oats Company bought S-VC in 1983, after a bidding war with rival Pillsbury. Quaker licensed manufacturing of Gatorade in some worldwide markets to PepsiCo, but sued Pepsi in Australia in 1998, alleging Pepsi had misappropriated Gatorade trade secrets to manufacture its own sports drink, All Sport. Quaker won the Australian case. In August 2001, Pepsico acquired Quaker (after another bidding war, this time with arch rival Coca-Cola Company). Both bidders valued Quaker largely because of the Gatorade brand.
Along with Johnson & Johnson, Gatorade is one of the founding sponsors of the National Athletic Trainersí Association. It is also the official sports drink of the National Football League, Major League Baseball, National Basketball Association, National Hockey League, Major League Soccer,Women's National Basketball Association, NBA Development League, US Soccer Federation, and many other pro and college organizations, providing supplies of the drinks to the teams in all flavors available.
Gatorade also markets an Energy Formula and an Endurance Formula. The Energy Formula was introduced in 2000 and contains more monosaccharides and carbohydrates for quick available energy needed during athletic competition. As a result, this formula is sweeter than regular Gatorade. It comes in 12-fluid ounce plastic bottles in the U.S. The Endurance Formula, introduced in 2004, contains more of the electrolytes (such as calcium and magnesium) than the typical Gatorade formula. The additional electrolytes replenish what the body sweats out during extended periods of physical exertion, especially in hot weather. Because of this, the Endurance Formula tastes saltier than original Gatorade.
There you have it, Gatorade is just that, non-carbonated, thus its a called a sports drink. Energy drink in the other hand containe caffeine, a lot more than soft drinks, that's why they're classifed as such, giving you jolt of energy.
