There’s something about a frozen drink on a screaming hot day that just feels right. This week, find us beating the heat with slushie from Spanglish in the Grand Traverse Commons! Inspired by Mexico’s “Agua fresca”—which combines seasonal fruit with sugar and plenty of ice—Spanglish’s slightly Americanized version (which they churn in nostalgic Slurpee machines) comes in three just-sweet-enough flavors, all of which pair with pork tacos and guac! Our favorite is the Cherry Limonada, a pucker-worthy blend of local cherry juice, water, cane sugar, and fresh lime, but you can mix and match with organic Mango or Passion Fruit if you just can’t decide. Psst: Get one while the gettin’s hot! This bevvy won’t be here past Labor Day. Grab a 16-ounce slushie at Spanglish at 1333 Yellow Drive in Traverse City. Order online at spanglishtc.com, or call (231) 943-1453.
