Ocean Water


Ocean Water from Sonic is one of my all time favorite drinks.

Of course, the ACTUAL ocean tastes like fish and seaweed.  But in the ocean of my dreams, it would taste like Sonic Ocean Water.


Now I can make my own at home!!  It’s super easy and yummy for the whole family to share…but feel free to add a splash of coconut rum.


1 can lemon lime soda

1/2 tsp coconut extract

small drop light blue food coloring

2 TBS simple syrup (recipe follows)

For simple syrup:  Combine equal parts (1/2 cup and 1/2 cup, for instance) sugar and water in a saucepan.  Bring to a boil, stirring and boiling until sugar is dissolved and no longer visible.  Let cool and keep stored in refrigerator.

For Ocean Water:  Combine all ingredients in a glass with ice.  Stir to combine and serve.

Enjoy and have a great weekend!!

    Love, Love, Love Sonic Ocean Water!! Whenever I need a mini-vaca in the middle of my work day, I stop at Sonic during my lunch just to get an Ocean Water. I agree with what Actual Ocean Water tastes like and how this is what my imaginary I-Live-On-A-Secluded-Beach (with Vin Diseal and his super sexy voice) Ocean Water would taste like. :) Thanks for the great recipe!

    Wow! This blog looks just like my old one!
    It’s on a entirely different topic but it has pretty much the same page layout and design.

    Wonderful choice of colors!
