Cool Drinks, NY: Soho Park Iced Tea

Soho Park is a bit of a tourist trap, but with its ample outdoor seating, I have trouble resisting. In hot weather, I always order the Soho Park Iced Tea ($4).

It's a freshly brewed batch of bold Ceylon tea sweetened only with a berry puree. The puree is strained before it's added the tea, producing a completely smooth and naturally sweet drink with no seeds to get stuck in your teeth. Torn mint leaves jazz it up—it's an ideal accompaniment for a day of shopping around Soho.
