NEWSFLASH: It’s suffocate-on-the-subway-platform hot outside. While we love lounging in Prospect Park, hitting up Summerstage concerts, and jaunts to Brighton Beach, "oppressive" doesn’t even begin to describe the current temperatures.So, to beat the heat, we’ve learned that a freshly blended juice is a fail-safe cure-all when it comes to cooling off, and, lucky for us, New York is home to some of the best juice joints around. We hit up some of our favorite NY-only spots to get the scoop on their best sellers. And, while our healthy friends couldn’t be persuaded to share their top-secret recipes, we did snag a list of ingredients for each of the drinks. Go ahead and try to make it just like them. We're willing to play guinea pig.
