Top Cool Down Treats and Eats For Summer

From cocktails and cold brew to omakase and ice cream

Summer in the 852 means heat, heat and more heat, so here's a few cool things to eat while enduring that great, great heat.

Common Room has whipped up something icy to bring your temperature down, and it involves alcohol so it's a double-win. Enjoy their scrumptious world-inspired tapas menu but start or begin your dining with a Drunken Boozesicle & Tutti Frutti Cocktail.  Several flavours with tropical offerings to sate the sweet tooth and cool you right down.
