I made a diet version with Splenda and diet lemon lime soda and it's still really good.

This is a fun, refreshing drink that feels like a real treat!

I've never had this at Sonic's but was intrigued by the picture and so glad I tried it. I absolutely LOVE it the sugar water adds just enough of sweetness, I was afraid it'd be to much but it wasn't. Since I'm a coconut lover this really hit the spot. I did take a picture but didn't turn out as pretty as the one here so I'll have to get some more color and try again. I know I'll be making this a lot.

It's been so longs since I have had Sonic Ocean Water, I have forgotten what it taste like. But this was really good. I halved the recipe so I could get just one serving and it was great. I loved the coconut taste. It's a great way to use a can of Sprite.

I love this recipe. I think it is better than Sonic's. Lately Sonic's Ocean Water tastes synthetic. This recipe tastes more like it should, like coconut. MMmmmmm.

This recipe is awesome! I used to go to Sonic down in Oklahoma in the summer. But back here in Illinois there's no Sonic around. So this recipe takes care of my Ocean Water cravings! Thanks!

I worked at Sonic for almost a year, and this is the perfect copycat!

I just found this recipe and it's incredibly amusing! I've been adding coconut extract to my sprite all this time without knowing what I was making! I'm in Canada which is Sonic-less, so I had no idea this was what Ocean Water was (I'd heard of it but didn't know anything beyond it being blue). It began as a mix to put Malibu in but I got a taste for it. :) Now I want to make it blue just for fun!

I had everything on hand except exchanged the Sprite for 7up. Not ever having tasted Sonic's Ocean Water, I had nothing to compare it to, but my 3 yo grandson thought this was the cat's meow. Made for Zaar Chef Alaphabet Soup '09
