With Memorial Day Weekend this weekend and this being the 3rd day of 90 degree weather in Charlotte, I would say Summer is here! With summer comes the heat…
I feel that the days of high 60 and low 70s are quickly fading. With the summer heat of the South, you need a cool treat or drink to cool off. In mentally preparing for summer, I was looking back through my travels at some delicious summer treats I experienced last year. First up is some of the best ice cream I have had in the country. From California to Pennsylvania, these are some of the best ice cream dishes you can find. If you want to know more about the dish click on the picture and it will take you to the post.
During a hot day, ice cream sometime won’t do the trick. This is when a cold beverage is a must. If you are in the mood for a stiff drink then head to Trudy’s in Austin, TX. If a beer is more up your alley, then check out my trip to the Long Trail Brewery in VT.
If you can’t escape the heat and are at home then I suggest making these delicious drinks. Nothing cures the summer heat like an Orangeade or Raspberry Limeade.
I hope these get you in the mood for summer! What are you favorite ways to stay cool in the summer heat?
