GoKo Energy Sparkling Coconut Water is Uplifting

Jill Weinlein

While Entrepreneur Jeff Krishbaum was traveling along the Mekong River in Vietnam, he discovered the coconut trees offered the sweetest coconut meat and water. Drinking the coconut water, he noticed it elevated his mood and offered a boost of energy. This inspired him to bring these health benefits back home to the United States.

Kirshabaum worked on R + D to create and develop four different GoKo Energy Sparkling Coconut Water flavors offering natural watermelon, pineapple, ginger, lime and lychee juice. Each can offers 89-95 mg of caffeine to give consumers a perk up.

The can is attractive with fun graphic art that features coconuts, lightning bolts, citrus, coconut trees and the words 'Antioxidants, Enlightened, Hydrate, Focus, Tropical, Restore, Fortify and Namaste.'

The Ginger & Lime GoKo Energy Sparkling Coconut Water has 0 Fat, 0 Cholesterol, 66 mg Sodium, 20 grams Carbohydrates, 18 grams Sugar, 33 mg Vitamin C, 314 mg Potassium and 95 mg Caffeine. It also makes a great mixer for a Moscow Mule, offering a non-alcohol Ginger Beer flavor.

Here's how to make a GoKo Moscow Mule:

Pour 3 ounce of vodka into a copper mug

Add ice cubes

Pour GoKo Energy Sparkling Coconut Water Ginger & Lime

Stir to combine

Squeeze and drop a lime wedge into the mug for additional flavor and garnish.
