Martha Stewart Living, July 2006

Searching for a respite from sultry summer days? Try one of these icy and utterly refreshing beverages. Some, including iced tea laced with hibiscus and ginger, or a mint julep blended with blackberries, are fresh takes on longtime favorites. Others, such as granita spritzer made with honeydew melon and seltzer, or an apricot-peach libation spiked with sweet wine, are creations of our own. Whether you fancy something with alcohol or without, you'll find great-tasting choices here. Best of all, each drink is guaranteed to help you maintain your cool, even as the mercury rises. We'll toast to that.
