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.
