Well, let me explain, yes, we live close to the ocean and no, we don’t actually get him to drink water from the ocean. This Ocean Water drink tastes nothing like the ocean. It is sweet and tangy with a hint of coconut flavor. Red Swedish fish swim into it, that you can catch and chew on. This drink is a kid friendly version of the famous Sonic Ocean Water. There is nothing wrong with the original, and I will provide instructions for both, but if you would like to avoid giving sugary soda to your kid, this is a better version.

This sweet drink is not only served on hot summer days, it is perfect for ocean themed birthday parties, or skip the fish and imagine how cool it would be to serve it at a Frozen for a winter themed party! My son and his buddy enjoyed fixing this yummy drink during their playdate. Also, they probably ate half bag of Swedish fish. While you are fixing drinks, make sure you also check this Chick fil a Lemonade Copycat!
