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 likes the taste of coconut—it's like pina colada soda. The server squirts a bit of blue coconut syrup into some cold Sprite. The big secret to duplicating this at home is re-creating that syrup. After that's done, 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?"
