It’s a brand new year and if you’re like us, you have a list of resolutions that may or may not last the month. Some sort of resolve to be healthier in 2015 is usually a go-to—whether it’s hitting the gym, trying the newest diet, or mixing up your drink choices. A new line of vodka and coconut water called VO|CO could be the boozy beverage for you in the New Year.
VO|CO launched in limited states in 2014 and will now be available nationwide. The pre-mixed beverage saves you the hassle of mixers and chasers and the sleek bottle design makes it easy to drink whether you’re on the beach or in the bar. A blend of triple distilled grain vodka and pure coconut water, VO|CO also claims it can cure a hangover. Coconut water contains electrolytes and many believe that its beneficial properties can make the morning after a late night out less of a struggle.
Each 12-ounce serving contains 5.5% alcohol, which is about equal to a beer or wine cooler and can be ordered online at Liquorama. Reviewers have said that the taste reminds them of a piña colada and recommend serving the drink poured over ice. Some people find coconut water an acquired taste, but if it can give you a buzz in the evening and keep you from staying in bed the next day, we think it’s worth a shot.
