Cocozia Review and Coconut Pomegranate Martini
This is not a sponsored post, but I did receive the product for free for a review. The post contains affiliate links.
Hi everyone, Happy Friday!
How nice ! Let’s start the weekend with an awesome, very simple to make drink – coconut pomegranate martini. Drinking your coconut water in a cocktail is a wonderful idea!
And this martini is perfect for the holidays, since I used pomegranate and cranberry juices in it. It is light, not sweet at all and very refreshing.
I recently got the opportunity to receive and try Cocozia Organic Coconut Water.
It is 100% Organic Coconut Water, No Pulp, No Sugar Added, No Preservatives, Not From Concentrate, pack of 12 (11.1 oz each). The price is $24.99 at the time of this post. Each container comes with a cute expandable straw, too. It was shipped through Amazon and took a while to arrive, since I’m not an Amazon Prime member any more and I usually have to order over $35 to get free shipping. If you are a Prime member, your water will arrive sooner.
I’ll be honest, I’m not a huge fan of coconut water but I’ve tried many brands, hoping to like at least some of them. No success so far, until I got a chance to try Cocozia. What I liked in it was the fresh and light taste and that it is organic, gluten free, vegan and non GMO verified. Unlike some other brands, that have huge chunks of pulp and even taste spoiled, this one tastes awesome. I do suggest that you serve it chilled. It makes a wonderful during and post workout drink. It keeps you hydrated and it really is worth trying. If you’ve tried other brands, most of you will be able to tell a difference. This brand did change my opinion on coconut water and now I know that I can drink it without a problem. Still a little hesitant to trying other brands, because I just don’t know how they are going to taste.
My husband even made two different kinds of green smoothies with it (more on the juice like side) that were delicious. I just thought that sharing a martini with coconut water is more appropriate for the coming Christmas and NYE.
If for decide to try the water, you can find it here.
