Summer’s almost over, but there’s still time to savour the last hot days of the season. What better way to beat the heat than with a refreshing, tasty beverage? Here are some seasonal favourites we’ve recently been sipping. Choose your fave to enjoy as the perfect way to bid farewell to summer.
Second Cup Frozen Lemonade
A cold glass of lemonade has “summer” written all over it – now throw it in a blender with ice and you’ve got an icy variety of the season’s best thirst quencher. Second Cup’s version is cool and crisp with a light, tangy flavour. Perfect for sipping while sitting on a patio!
DAVIDsTEA Cotton Candy
Make an iced version of this caffeine-free tea that starts off with a sweet base of green rooibos and then combines nut brittle, candied mango and cotton candy sprinkles to create a flavour reminiscent of everyone’s favourite carnival treat. The cotton candy flavour is part of the specialty tea retailer’s Carnival Collection, which also includes four other distinct fairground flavours: Cherry Snowcone, Caramel Corn, Pink Lemonade, and Root Beer Float. Yum!
Booster Juice Canadian Colada
One of the options from Booster Juice’s Spirit Smoothie menu, this oh-so-delicious smoothie is made from a blend of pineapples, coconut, bananas, and vanilla frozen yogurt. It’s our go-to drink when we’re looking for a cold treat with a nice Vitamin C kick, too.
Starbucks Teavana Shaken Iced Passion Tango Tea
For a taste of the tropics, we’ve been gulping this iced tea that’s an infusion of hibiscus, apple, lemongrass and natural tropical flavours. The Teavana menu also includes Iced Blackberry Mojito Tea Lemonade, Iced Peach Green Tea Lemonade, Iced Green Tea, and Iced Black Tea, so get to your local Starbucks and ask the barista to shake one of these up for you today.
President’s Choice Watermelon Lemonade Soda
Okay, now why hasn’t anyone thought to combine these two quintessentially summer flavours together before? We’re so glad President’s Choice did – the result is a soda with a sweet watermelon flavour tamed with a zesty lemony tang. Best of all, there are no artificial flavours or artificial colours. Cheers to that!
