Any Sonic Drive-In regular knows the three or four unique fountain drink favorites on the menu. there's the Limeade, the Diet Limeade, and, of course, the Cherry Limeade. But that bright blue stuff called Ocean Water has become a recent favorite for anyone who digs the taste of coconut - its like a pina colda soda. The server simply squirts a bit of blue coconut syrup into some cold Sprite. The big secret to duplicating this one at home is re-creating that syrup, so that's the first step. After that's done, you make the drink as they do at the restaurant in less time than it takes to say, "Does my blue tongue clash with what I'm wearing?"
3 tablespoons water
2 tablespoons sugar

My husband is a manager at sonic and the ocean water is a drink that I bug him to bring home almost daily. I tried this and it tastes just like the real thing! My husband is thrilled and so am I. Now I can have this anytime I want.

This looks like what i made when i worked there, except they completely left out the juice of a small, fresh lime. If you want to do it the right way, pour your coconut and blue junk over some crushed ice, squeeze the lime, and then do your sprite thang. We used to nip it with a little vodka once in a while on breaks *ahhh*

You can use blue coconut snow cone syrup instead of the sugar, water and coconut extract syrup mixture. It tastes like the real thing. Sonic uses the blue coconut slush syrup mixed with sprite.

Great recipe! I've never had this at Sonic before, but I wanted to try it anyway. I made some for my husband, and without being prompted, he said, "wow, this is good. Sonic has a drink that tastes exactly like this."

I multiplied the coconut syrup recipe and keep it handy for a quick Ocean Water without the wait. Very tasty on a hot southern afternoon!

It left an after taste that was unpleasant.
