The biggest thing for me in this regard is hydration.
On top of that, electrolytes, sugar and protein.
I have used a couple of different recovery drinks, my favorite of which is "perfect storm" by precision engineering, but that is solely for flavor, alot of them work great.
Another thing that works quite well for people I have talked to is a fresh orange right after working out. You get a sugar burst but without all the artificials.
