Keep you and your kitchen cool this summer with refreshing cocktails, icy treats and chilled soups
It’s hot out there. Really hot. Many of us want to keep our cooking to an absolute minimum; some of us don’t want to turn on the stove or oven at all.
If you’re feeling the heat, these drinks, snacks and low-cook eats will bring sweet relief.
Spicy Watermelon Margarita. Start with a drink. Cool watermelon gives a slushy texture to this drink.
Almond Granita. Cold, icy, with gorgeous almond flavor, this granita is a refreshing icy treat.
José Andrés’s Gazpacho. Gazpacho, the cold Spanish tomato soup, is a summer classic.
Shrimp Salad With Lime and Mint Dressing. Yes, you cook the shrimp, but this salad is served at room temperature with bright lime and mint.
Raw Salsa Verde With Cucumber and Mint. Cucumber and mint are a refreshing accompaniment to the spicy zip of this salsa.
Fresh Lemon Syrup. Make a citrusy syrup to form the foundation of a perfect lemonade — summer’s quintessential drink.
