Super Refreshing Fruit-Infused Coconut Water

This coconut water is so refreshing, it’ll make you go “ahhh”. When I first tried coconut water, at a gas station halfway through an 8 hour drive to Connecticut, I was not a fan. If you’ve had coconut water before, you know it’s a bit of an acquired taste. You taste a sip expecting it…
