Love your coffee and tea, but it’s just too hot for a piping cup right now? Saxbys has you covered with its Summer Spirits collection, four cocktail-inspired but booze-free drinks. The Cold Brew Sangria Spritz is an Aperol-like drink that steeps an orange in cold brew coffee; the Raspberry Breeze combines pineapple juice, sparkling water and unsweet raspberry tea for a take on a Sea Breeze; the Philly House Punch is inspired by the Fish House Punch served at many local institutions; and the Espresso Tonic is a mix of espresso, tonic water and a lemon wheel. Make sure to try them while they are available this summer!
