It's that time of year again...

We Orange County folk are spoiled with the near perfect climate, so when the weather upsurges north of 75 degrees like it's going to this week, we call it a heat wave and go into major survival mode. Whether it's hitting the beach, spraying our faces with a water-fan all day long, or indulging in cold drinks, we'll do anything - seriously, anything - to keep ourselves cool.

If you do end up choosing the cold-drink route, there are several that do an exceptional job at alleviate high-temperature woes. Each of them are delicious and cold, and here they are in no particular order:

Sea Cream Jasmine Tea - 7 Leaves Café (Garden Grove)

Just looking at it feels refreshing

7 Leaves Café's sea cream jasmine tea is mystically calming, which comes in handy when heat and sweat subconsciously aggravate temper. The tea consists of a smooth and faintly salty sea cream that lies atop a saccharine blend of jasmine tea. The tea gives off a sweet aroma that consequently leaves you feeling tranquil. If you ever need mood medicine for annoyingly hot days, this tea is the remedy.

Pina Colava - Cove Bar at Disneyland (Anaheim)

This plus mouse ears and raspberries

Disneyland trips during drought season are a pain, but, luckily, magic's not too far off. Try the pina colava at California Adventure's Cove Bar and you'll be recovering from the warmth in no time. The drink is a twist on the classic pina colada containing Stoli Razberi Vodka, pina colada mix, and raspberry puree. It's fruity, tropical, and light on the alcohol, so if you thought you couldn't get any happier at the happiest place on earth, you thought wrong.

I have a suggestion.. The juice guy at the Anaheim Indoor Marketplace.  He is kinda in the northeast corner.  I recommend the Pineapple/Spinach.
