Alright, I've got to be totally honest with you guys. I have a love/hate relationship with summer in Montreal.
I know, I know! Summer's great! There's no more snow; we can start biking and walking and enjoying ourselves again; there are tons of super fun activities to do... I mean, yes, I agree, it's great.
But sometimes, Montreal's heat and humidity gets intense. Like, really intense.
Thankfully, there are a couple of things you can do to fend off the heat and keep living your best Montreal summer life. My own personal favourite thing to do? Indulge in a seriously refreshing and tasty drink!
And if you're down for a legitimately yummy, cold drink, then you're going to want to try this Watermelon Teamonade from Café Van Houtte.
Made with lemonade, sencha green tea (which, btw, is a major key in keeping up energy levels, boosting metabolism, and fighting inflammation), and a splash of watermelon and lime, this drink combines sweet, tangy, and earthy flavours into something super refreshing, and mind-blowingly delicious. Plus, since Café Van Houtte is a Montreal-based cafe, you can bank on the fact that they know exactly what it takes to cool you down during our super hot summers.
While you're at it, why not sample one of the other game-changing beverages also guaranteed to keep you cool this summer?
If tea is your thing, then treat yourself to a Matcha Raspberry Frappe (!!!), or a Mango-Honey Rooibos Frappe. Or how about a sparkling Peach Italian Soda which is actual magic in a cup. Chocolate is your bae? Well, friends, prepare to fall in love with the seriously-killer Chocolate Chai Frappe.
Oh, and no worries if cold beverages aren't for you. Café Van Houtte's still got all the steaming hot, 100% fairtrade coffee that you've come to know and love.
Whatever your choice, one thing's for sure: With so many awesome new flavours, Café Van Houtte is definitely going to be my fave for beating the heat this summer. But don't take my word for it, use this $1 off coupon and try any one of their new cold drinks for yourself, available all across Quebec.
