A lot of different people have a lot of different advice about staying sane in heat like this (drink hot drinks, drink cold drinks, put ice packs on your wrists or whatever) and while most of it's probably well-meant, I'm skeptical about how much any of these coping mechanisms ever really change anything.

It'd actually be sort of terrible to ignore all their hard work! So, with that and mind, let's look at five of the very best drinks for taking your mind off the crippling heat, and the places in Brooklyn that make them best. Many of which also have air conditioning.
