Sonic is my number one favorite place to buy drinks in the Summertime. Heck, it’s my favorite ANY time. Since we don’t have one anywhere close to my house, whenever I go home to Arizona, or anywhere that has a Sonic for that matter, it’s one of the first places I go. I have been known to purchase two drinks (at least) for myself in one trip through the drive thru. It’s embarrassing really. ;) The food isn’t as amazing but it is pretty good when you get to chase it down with one of the million awesome drinks they serve.
Sonic Ocean Water is probably one of the BEST drinks they have. It’s so unique to Sonic and it’s ridiculously good. If you’ve never had it before, imagine a blue coconuty fizzy dream! Throw in Sonic’s famous ice pebbles and fahgettaboudit. Straight up amazing!
Today I’m sharing these delicious homemade version of Sonic’s Ocean Water Copycat Recipe you can make with just a couple ingredients. It tastes exactly like Sonic’s famous drink and it is so easy! If you can get your hands on some pebble or awesome crushed ice, even better.
4 Tablespoons of regular white sugar
4 Tablespoons of water
24 oz of lemon-lime soda (2 – 12 oz cans works great!)
1 1/2 teaspoons of coconut extract
3 drops of blue food coloring
In a microwave safe bowl, mix white sugar and water and heat for 30 seconds in the microwave. This should dissolve most of the sugar. Add the sugar mixture to the lemon-lime soda, coconut extract and food coloring to a pitcher and mix gently.
Pour it over some ice and you’ve got yourself the best dang drink ever. A close competitor with Sonic’s Cherry Limeade which you can also make at home with my recipe, thankyouverymuch.
Do you have Sonic by your house? Do you like it? Just drinks or you love the food too?
