I don’t share recipes on my blog very often these days, but I finally felt that this one deserved its own blog post! I’ve been making this drink every evening for at least four months now. I love its refreshing taste, and the extra hydrating benefits of it are a great bonus!
This drink is a little concoction I came up with, because I love Spindrift (flavored sparkling water) so much but I wanted to add in a couple other things that would help to hydrate me better as a busy (and nursing) mama! It’s simple and has a slightly unique taste to it if you’re not used to drinking coconut water, but it quickly became a favorite of mine and now I actually crave it every night!
What You Need
- 1 can of Spindrift sparkling water (any flavor, but my all-time favorite is Raspberry Lime! Also, there are many sparkling water brands out there, but after trying lots of them, I remain convinced that Spindrift is the best! I love how they squeeze actual fruit into the sparkling water to make it!)
- Coconut water (I buy VitaCoco Coconut Water with Pineapple in a 32-oz. carton from Walmart, and keep it in the fridge to use all week)
- LMNT electrolyte drink mix (any flavor, but I usually have Watermelon on hand because it’s my favorite)
- Ice cubes
- Extra large mason jar
- Straw (I have these stainless steel ones)
I typically grab an extra large mason jar (one that holds 3-4 cups) for this drink.
Fill your large glass about 1/3 of the way with ice cubes. Pour in your can of Spindrift.
Add in a generous splash of coconut water on top – about 1/2 to 3/4 cup.
Here’s the fun extra part: add in a sprinkle of LMNT electrolyte drink mix powder! I keep a pouch of LMNT drink mix in a small Ziploc bag for this purpose, and that’s what I reach for every night when I make this drink. (I also drink a whole pouch of the LMNT drink mix earlier in the day; this little bit of LMNT powder is just a fun add-in for this evening drink.)
Give your drink a thorough stir (to dissolve the drink mix), and you’re all set! Enjoy!
You can have fun experimenting with various Spindrift and LMNT flavors, too!
