Coconut water certainly lacks that jolt of caffeine and sugar rush from my usual black tea, lots of milk and plenty of sugar routine, but it's refreshing and delicious. It also reminds me of traveling through Southeast Asia and the adventuring I did there.
Nothing beats a fresh coconut with a straw to sip on a hot day, but I'm channeling that feeling through the next best thing, a little glass of coconut water as I blog into the afternoon.
What's your favorite afternoon pick-me-up beverage? Does it include caffeine, or have you found an alternative sort of jolt?
