Homemade Copycat Sonic Ocean Water

Sonic Ocean Water
In college my amazing roomie introduced me to Sonic Ocean Waters… Sprite mixed with their special blue coconut flavoring. Oh my goodness they’re delicious. Ever since I’ve loved finding Sonics wherever we go, just so I can get an Ocean Water. The other day I was thinking of fun drinks I could make with our Sunday dinner and I realized Ocean Water would be so easy to make. (Oh the money I could have saved by just knowing this recipe years ago!) I experimented this weekend and found the perfect recipe for them.
  • 12 oz. Sprite or Diet Sprite
  • 2 tablespoons (blue) coconut syrup
  • blue food coloring
  • crushed ice
The coconut syrup can be made with coconut extract by following my tutorial here, or you can buy Torani coconut syrups too! Once you have your coconut syrup (make sure it’s cooled to room temperature if you made yours), add 4-5 drops of blue food coloring per 1 cup of syrup. Mix around until incorporated.IMG_2272
Then add crushed ice to a large cup.  IMG_2273
Pour 2 tablespoons of the blue coconut syrup over the crushed ice. Then add 12 oz. of Sprite or any lemon-lime soda. Mix and enjoy!IMG_2275
