COOL THINGS DOWN

Where Orlando - - Where Now - BY SHEL­LEY PRE­STON

With the aver­age tem­per­a­ture in July and Au­gust hov­er­ing at 90-plus de­grees, you’ll want a re­fresh­ing fix af­ter the parks or schlep­ping to busi­ness meet­ings.

But­ter Beer

Harry Pot­ter’s fa­vorite drink is non-al­co­holic, frothy and sweet. Part of the bev­er­age’s magic is the foam never dis­ap­pears from first to last sip. Fans de­scribe the fla­vor as be­ing some­thing like cream soda meets but­ter pecan cookie. It also comes frozen for those seek­ing an ex­treme chill fac­tor. Only at Uni­ver­sal’s Wizard­ing World of Harry Pot­ter or the new Di­agon Al­ley.

The Sun­burn

Beer cock­tails are all the rage, and the Yard House (8367 In­ter­na­tional Drive/www.yard­house.com) has many to choose from in­clud­ing a tasty con­coc­tion made with St. Ger­main, Mal­ibu pineap­ple rum, or­ange bit­ters, cran­berry juice and pear cider then topped with fresh thyme and or­ange peel. Or, go for the Silly Euro­pean made with house Bel­gian Am­ber Tripel and Tan­query gin.

The Kitchen Sink

From the Dis­ney parks, hop aboard a com­pli­men­tary boat or bus to Dis­ney’s Beach Club Re­sort (1800 Ep­cot Re­sorts Blvd./www.dis­ney­world.com) for a se­ri­ous in­dul­gence. The jour­ney’s pay­off is a moun­tain of frozen good­ness at its Beaches & Cream Soda Shop. You’ll want for noth­ing with eight scoops of ice cream loaded with ev­ery top­ping you can imag­ine in­clud­ing hot fudge, caramel, whipped cream, straw­ber­ries, sprin­kles and what­ever else is be­hind the counter.
