Coolest Cure For A Hot Day

TIE: Changos Taqueria; Hoover's Cooking

Cool water. When summer hits with its mighty, sweaty fist, it's what we Austinites crave. We want to swim in it; we want to float on it; we want to drink it. The mouth waters. The senses reel. The parched lips crack a smile. It's summer and the one sure cure is Hoover's lemonade. It's not just the fresh, delicious taste, it's the big ol' frosty, icy, pitchers of it they serve. It's so cold and tart and thirst-quenching we find ourselves dreaming of it in winter. More, please! Changos' agua fresca also offers a tasty twist to plain old H20. Delicious flavors like watermelon, cantaloupe, and strawberry are not too sweet and refreshingly natural, making them more thirst quenching and cooling than your average pop. The pulp in the drinks also gives it a somewhat healthy feel, like you're drinking something good for you. The four daily flavors change regularly, and refills are free.
