Iced Tea, Lemonade, & Milkshakes: 15 Icy Cold Drinks

Iced Tea, Lemonade, & Milkshakes: 15 Icy Cold Drinks

It's a long weekend! Ready to hit the back porch? Is it still hot out? Here are 15 icy-cold drinks to beat the heat. We left all the cocktails off the list; these are kid-friendly and just fine for sipping at 10am. There's a green tea milkshake, and another one made of strawberries and ice cream. There are fruity aguas frescas, and Thai iced tea. There are spritzers, smoothies, and a shakerato! Read on for lots and lots of chilly summer goodness.

Personally, I am wildly craving a watermelon agua fresca — maybe one topped off with a splash of soda water? I really can't get enough fizzy water in the summertime. The smoothies are calling to me too, though — something fruity, something sweet?
