Food and Drink Features

Christina Nihira
While summer is still a scorching celebration, try treating yourself to a decadent soda. Curious cream sodas, spicy ginger ales, rich root beers, tart citrus beverages with genuine bitterness, complex colas — they’re all chilling out there beside surprising, one-of-a-kind flavors as diverse as cucumber, chocolate and jalapeño oil.
