    Take refuge in a tall glass of milk, infused with unusual flavors to keep cool this season

    Often given a bad rap, milk takes on exciting and experimental notes this summer to help keep the temperatures down. From saffron-infused milk shakes to strawberry latte, there’s something for every palate. We take a look at what’s on offer

    Perfect for those who are not big on coffee, the Berrific latte at Big Straw is a delicious combination of strawberry and blueberry. Not too thick and generously iced, little blueberry bombs that burst in your mouth give each sip a tangy, refreshing aftertaste. You can also make your own drink by choosing from a base (smoothie, latte, sundae), flavour and chewable (basil seeds, tapioca pearls, and aloe vera). Rs 87 upwards. At St Mark’s Road.

    Going bananas
    While banana and caramel might be a classic pairing, it’s hard to come by a milkshake version in the city. Art of Delight serves up a lip-smacking version, that we had no problem finishing, despite its calorific contents. Drink up first, worry later, we say. Rs 120. At Residency Road. Details: 40913229

    If savoury is more your thing, head to FoodHall’s ongoing Persian Food Festival and get your hands on a refreshing cup of dhoogh, the Persian version of chaas.

    Oriental delight
    For something a touch more Asian, opt for the Chendol at Nasi and Mee.
