It’s quite soupy out there, Astoria.  Hope you’re finding nice ways to cool down, which is also very much our mission this week.  Here are some delicious ways to do that:

caramel de leche - astor bake shop

Have you seen this new drink at Astor Bake Shop? It’s called the Caramel de Leche, which is a kind of cool, milky frappe.  Mmmm…12-23 Astoria Blvd, Astoria.  718.606.8439


Speaking of frappes, the ones at Avenue Cafe are my favorite – such as their classic, pictured above.  Pair it with their delicious watermelon and grilled halloumi salad for a perfect summer snack.  35-27 30th Avenue, Astoria.  718.278.6967

In other delicious cold drink news, Bear has a light strawberry sangria they’ve been featuring lately, and some nice summery veggie pasta to go with it.  12-14 31st Avenue, LIC.  917.396.4939

cashew-juice-pao-de-queijo-astoria-queensAnother refreshing drink option is Meg’s pick this week – the cold cashew fruit juice at Pao de Queijo.  Our friend Sue also enjoyed a yummy passion fruit juice there that comes recommended.  Give these a try and pair them with a signature, stuffed pao de queijo.  31-90 30th Street, Astoria.  718.204.1979
