Coconut Cocktails

Make Your Coconut Water Go From Sports Drink to Cocktail Companion

With its high levels of electrolytes, magnesium, and potassium, coconut water is too good to enjoy only at the gym. The next time you go to shake your favorite cocktail or sip your favorite drink, keep coconut water and its hydrating powers in mind. Many bartenders are turning to coconut water as a healthy replacement for coconut milk or crème de coconut in tropical drinks like piña coladas. At only 46 calories per cup and with loads of electrolytes, coconut water could have headaches and diet hang-ups practically out of the picture.

If coconut cocktails aren't your thing, consider using coconut-water ice cubes to dilute your drink. If your favorite juice is loaded with sugar or simply too sweet of a pick-me-up, use a splash of coconut water or a few ice cubes to dilute it. This will cut calories and ease the sugar crash. Coconut-water ice cubes are also an easy way to add more flavor and keep you and your drink chill at the gym.
