Why Bother with Long Lines When Our CoCo Lemon Dunk Can Be Made Quickly and with Few Ingredients

November 8, 2018

We get the hype of CoCo Fresh Tea & Juice. We’ve waited through the lines. Yes, it’s delicious. Yes, it’s fresh tasting. But quite frankly, standing in line while we’re, uh—is there a thirsty version for hangry?—is not our cup of tea.

It’s so easy to make, you may as well make extra and store some up in the fridge. The flavor will mature with the lemon in it, but that’s fun too.

You can customize your level of preferred sweetness by adjusting how much syrup you put into the drink. But don’t skip the syrup-making step by putting straight sugar into your cold tea—sugar doesn’t dissolve as well in cold water. Enjoy your no-line CoCo tea, and tell us in the comments how you would rate our Hackuracy!
