Four Ways To Chill Out

Bloomberg Businessweek (Asia) - - ETC. -

Granita: An Ital­ian shaved-ice dessert that can be fla­vored with any­thing from fruit or herbs to cof­fee. Its name de­rives from gran­ite, re­fer­ring to its grainy tex­ture.

Halo-Halo: This means “mix-mix” in Ta­ga­log, one of the of­fi­cial lan­guages of the Philip­pines. It’s tra­di­tion­ally served with con­densed milk, tapi­oca, sweet beans, and corn, and gar­nished with a slice of flan and a scoop of pur­ple-yam ice cream.

Ras­pado: Most Latin Amer­i­can coun­tries have a ver­sion of shaved ice. This Mex­i­can va­ri­ety is typ­i­cally sold by street ven­dors, who scrape ice by hand and top it with in­gre­di­ents like fla­vored syrups, fruit, chili pow­der, and lime.

Cab­i­net: A Rhode Island milk­shake, sen­si­bly named for the place you store your blender.
