Refreshing Drink/Food in the Heat

CampySD | Jul 18, 2010 11:38 AM

Hi 'hounds,

I remember a post on the California board (before we got our own :) that was about the best refreshing items to have on a hot day. Can't seem to find it using the "wonderful" search option on CH. So, I thought I'd revive it!
It was through that post that I discovered the avocado smoothies at K Sandwiches and the idea of cold ramen (which would have never occurred to me). My current favorite relief is actually Som Tum (Thai papaya salad), which, when nuclear-arly hot, gives great relief in the form of the sheen of sweat which develops over your entire body, starting with your head. I live in PB, so this invariably ends up coming from Thai Village, but I am also a big fan of Sab E Lee's version too - when I dare to venture East of the 5.

What's your release from the heat? (Now that summer is here at last!)
