Copycat Sonic Ocean Water

This recipe for a Copycat Sonic Ocean Water tastes like the real deal. It’s a must for summertime or anytime you want a really refreshing beverage.

It’s summertime and around here that means lots of cool and refreshing beverages that everyone will love.

  I’m talking kid-friendly drinks that the adults will enjoy too.

If you’ve never been to (or heard of) Sonic, it’s a drive-up fast food restaurant.

I guess you could say, their menu consists of a variety of fast food items such as burgers, breakfast burritos, fries…you get the picture.

However, on their menu, I especially like their beverages. And, they have a  large selection of beverages. From basic ice tea, slushies and shakes, to cool drinks like their Sonic Ocean Water.

Just so happens to be, my absolutely favorite.

So, that’s what I’m sharing with you today.

This beverage is so refreshingly delicious and, the easiest recipe too.

What is Sonic Ocean Water

Sonic Water is a cool and refreshing beverage that’s supposed to look like—and remind us of—the ocean of course.  Not taste like the ocean-no no, but have vibrant blue color.

My kids and husband love this copycat Sonic Ocean Water recipe.

Now to be clear, even though it’s called Ocean Water, I promise it doesn’t taste anything like ocean water. It does however resemble the beautiful Caribbean with its striking and vibrant blue color.

It’s bubbly and sweet, with a hint of coconut flavor and tastes like you’re on vacation—even when you can’t take one. 

And since we are talking about refreshing summer drinks, I must mention that last year in August I posted a recipe and little story about Shark Week.

You’ll have to check out another delicious blue drink—Shark Berry Float—made with ice cream and be sure to add it to your most refreshing summertime drinks list.

Now, get ready to copy this Copycat Sonic Ocean Water recipe down because you are going to absolutely love how cool the color is and how cool and refreshing it tastes. Enjoy every last sip!

Recipe note…For an adult beverage, try adding your favorite vodka such as lemon, coconut, lime, just to name a few flavors that would go nicely in a Sonic Ocean Water.
