What's everybody's favourite "cooling-off" food/drink?

I mean stuff like popsicles, snowcones, granitas, ice cream, etc. What does everyone eat to chill out?

Ben and Jerry's Chubby Hubby Ice Cream
Peanut Butter milkshakes are pretty good too.

EAT: watermelon, ice cream, etc.

DRINK: lemonade or sweet iced tea.

ADULT DRINKS: Rum or Bourbon and coke, or cold beer. And that doesn't even bring into the mix the "virgin" fruit drinks I had grown up on in FL - Pena Callida, etc.

I love nothing more than a good glass of water - the sad part my favorite water comes from Tuscany and isn't cheap

The other thing I enjoy is frozen grapes - just pop some seedless grapes off the stem and put them in a baggie. Pull a couple out and enjoy! These are also good to keep a glass of white wine or Champagne cold!!!

Ice cold limonada (lemonade made with limes) or jamaica, which is a tea made with hibiscus flowers. It's bright red and tastes a little like cranberry juice. Very refreshing.

Peppermint iced tea is tasty.

As for alcoholic drinks, mojito's obviously!
