If you enjoy coconut water—or the flavor of coconut in general—you can add a subtle touch of it to your favorite beverages via coconut water ice cubes.

Use them in juice, iced tea, ginger ale and lemon-lime sodas (and of course, in coconut water itself). It’s an easy way to add a little something-something while cooling your drink.

Or, try them in a cocktail, like this one, which builds on the ingredients of a Mango Margarita:

Ingredients

  • 3 ounces blanco tequila
  • 1 oz clear orange-flavored liqueur
  • 1 oz fresh lime juice
  • 2 tablespoons light agave nectar
  • 1-1/2 cups chopped fresh mango
  •  
    Preparation

    1. COMBINE ingredients in a blender. Cover; blend until smooth.

    2. ADD coconut water ice cubes; blend until smooth. Pour into glasses; garnish with mango or lime slices. Makes 4 drinks.

     
    TO MAKE COCONUT ICE CUBES

    Simply pour 1-1/2 cups of coconut water into standard ice cube tray and freeze.

    For extra fun, buy some silicone ice cube trays in fun summer shapes, and freeze cubes into flowers, stars, suns, trees and sea life.
