What is Coconut Water and Where Can You Find it

Coconut water is exactly what it sounds like: the water from inside a young coconut. It has a sweet, rich, and slightly nutty flavor, but, unlike coconut milk, it is completely clear.

I’m originally from Costa Rica, and I miss having coconut water straight out of the coconut. It is one of my favorite things to sip on on a hot day at the beach.

The good news is that now coconut water is available in most grocery stores. I would recommend looking for one that is not made from concentrate, especially for this coconut water mocktail.

Why Should You Drink More Coconut Water

Not only is coconut water delicious; it’s also good for you!

Scientists believe that coconut water contains nutrients and antioxidants and can help to manage all sorts of diseases like diabetes or heart disease. It’s also a great source of hydration, which is why I always have some in the fridge during the hot summer months.

How to Make a Fun Mocktail

Mocktails, like cocktails, are all about getting the right balance of flavors.

In this case, I wanted to balance the sweetness and richness of the coconut water with some of the tartness of blackberries and the floral notes of lavender.

I also think that flavored sodas are a great shortcut when you want to spruce up a mocktail. The carbonation makes the drink more fun and festive, and kids seem to love it.

Ingredients

  • 7-10 fresh blackberries
  • 1/2 cup coconut water chilled
  • 1 tbsp freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • lavender soda chilled
  • lemon peel to garnish
  • blackberries to garnish

Instructions

  • Put the blackberries in a small bowl and mash them with a fork. Strain the mixture through a fine mesh sieve. You should end up with about 1/2 tbsp of blackberry puree.
  • Add the puree and the lemon juice to a tall glass. Fill the glass with ice.
  • Add the coconut water and top with the lavender soda until the glass if full to the rim. Gently stir.
  • Garnish with some lemon peel and a blackberry and serve immediately.

Notes

  • If you would like to make this coconut water mocktail for a crowd, feel free to put a cup of blackberries, 1/4 cup of lemon juice, and little bit of water in a blender to make a large batch of the puree. Make sure to strain it before putting it in the mocktail.
  • If you can't find lavender soda at the grocery store, feel free to use some lime or lemon soda instead and omit the lemon juice. You could also use plain soda, but you might need to make some simple syrup and add about a tsp to each drink to make it sweet enough.
