Cool Off with Cool Treats
Restaurants around NYC are serving up treats to minimize the heat

Sweltering heat us upon us New Yorker's and there's only one way to cool off -- and it doesn't involve jumping in the Hudson River. Restaurants and bars are now offering up cooling treats that are perfect for a hot summer's day. Starting June 4th, Spice Market is kicking off the outdoor drinking season with Patio Pitchers. Pitchers of their signature Ginger Margarita of Passion Fruit Sangria, which are normally $48, will be a steal for $24 4-7pm during the week when you sit on the outdooor patio. Highpoint Bar & Bistro will be serving up two very different watermelon-themed treats.

Try their watermelon steak au poivre with grilled watermelon, shaved jicama, asparagus, and tomato, and wash it down with their Waterboo Cocktail, made with vodka, blueberry, and fresh watermelon. Zengo is dishing out a delicious Thai Basil and Watermelon Tequila Snow Cone. Does it get any better than that? And finally, 508 Gastrobrewery will be offering patrons their Water Bomb cocktail, made with watermelon juice, Hendrick's gin, and ginger. Bottoms up!
