Blissful Buzz

 In the constant heat wave that’s swept NYC lately, everyone has been seeking relief from the oppressive temperatures. Every weekend half the population flees to Long Island or New Jersey, and lines at Pinkberry have been out of control. Every. Single. Time. I try to get an Icee, the machine at 7-11 is empty. You’d think I was trying to get a taquito at 4am. Whether it’s swimming, or a frosty treat you crave you just want to stay cool.

Reunion Surf bar on 44th Street between 8th and 9th has the answer in the form of happy hour. Stay cool and get drunk? They have Sno-Cone Cocktails on the menu. One cone for $4, or 3 for $10 in flavors that scream summer (or Italian ice) like cherry with Tahitian Vanilla bean, Lime with lime vodka, and Raspberry. And get this: each cone has the same amount of alcohol as a regular mixed drink.

Beat the heat, and get buzzed all in one.
