Every month, the Serious Eats team is on the hunt for the best sips—alcoholic and booze-free—to share with all of you (and to enjoy for ourselves!). This month we went off-menu at Mister Softee (if you haven't yet tried asking for them to add a fresh banana to your vanilla shake, you're welcome), sampled vibrant magenta prickly pear wine, and cut through the late-summer heat with Suze, a tasty French apéritif. Head over to the slideshow to see the best drinks we drank in August!
