Just when you thought your Vodka Soda couldn’t get any healthier, we went and added a splash of ultra-hydrating coconut water. Coconut water and vodka, really? Don’t knock it until you try it. The combination is silky, refreshing and downright magical on a hot day. After drinking one down (which should only take a few seconds), you’ll want another and then another. Whether you’re on a diet or just looking for a light, spritzy, refresher on a sunny summer day, this cocktail will be your new go-to.
While just about any vodka will do, neutral, silky bottlings like Zirkova One or Russian Standard work best. If you want to make the drink even more coconut forward, try Three Olives Coconut Water vodka, which will take that creamy, coconut flavor to an 11. When it comes to the coconut water, opt for a brand that doesn’t use any artificial sweeteners or additives like include CoAqua, Harmless Harvest and Vita Coco.
