Nothing beats the satisfying chill of an iced beverage on a hot summer day. Try a glass or two of these thirst-quenching drinks in Pittsboro.

If you’re looking for caffeine, try an iced latte or macchiato from Aromatic Roasters. They also offer cold brew coffee, iced teas and lemonade made fresh daily.

A hand reaches to grab some fries from a heavily-packed plate next to a glass of iced sweet tea.

Grab a seat at the counter and order a sweet tea from Dillinger’s Diner.

S&T’s Soda Shoppe has a wide range of cool options for all ages, including shakes (milk, malt and dreamsicle), floats, a cherry smash, cherry Coke or Pepsi, orangeade, lemonade and limeade, a dairy-free egg cream and root beer.

A milkshake topped with whipped cream and sprinkles sits on the edge of a glass table. Behind the table is a jukebox, dartboard and other decorations, slightly out of focus from the camera's perspective.

Sample something different, like honey wine from Starrlight Mead, located at The Plant in east Pittsboro. Try their traditional meads, fruit-infused options, herb-infused wines and seasonal favorites, like a margarita-style honeyed drink.

Raise your spirits at Fair Game Beverage Co. over handcrafted cocktails made with the distillery’s signature apple brandy, small batch malt whiskey, Flying Pepper vodka, Balancing Act gin, amber rum or No’Lasses sorghum spirit.

A bottle of Fair Game's amber rum sits on a wooden table alongside an iced beverage. A hand reaches over the glass to squeeze an orange into the glass.
Someone holds a glass of a drink from Carolina Brewery up to the camera for a picture. In the background is a wooden deck/patio where other brewery-goers relax and cluster together at tables, some with umbrellas, all outside.

Grown-ups at Carolina Brewery can try Paddle Daze, a new hazy India pale ale with hints of citrus and tropical fruit. Give the kiddos a refillable glass of fresh-squeezed lemonade.
