Best summer drink smackdown: We pick the Jackson Heights Limonata ... care to challenge us?

We happened to make this journey during the heat wave when it was 106 degrees - which prompted many a beverage break. And luck for the intrepid Tabloid gang, we ended up at Espresso77 (35-57 77th St.) - a tiny coffee shop that serves up, hands down, the best summer drink this city has to offer: the Honey Mint Limonata.
It's a slushy lime concoction fused with fresh crushed mint. A large goes for $4.50, a small for $3.25. So this is just our opinion: we think everyone should head to Jackson Heights on the next hot day and try one.
But we want to hear from you too - so send us photos of your nominations for best summer beverage [HERE] (Look in the lower right corner of this pop-up to upload your own photo). The challenge begins.
