Houston's 20 Most Iconic Drinks

View as Map

An iconic drink is one that is so good one seeks it out regardless of the quality of the food at the restaurant that serves it. It should also reveal something about the character of the people that drink it. As expected, Houston's iconic drinks cover a broad range of ethnic cuisines. One tie that binds many of these drinks is that they are served cold: a testament to Houstonians' constant quest to beat our summer heat. If many of these places seem new, consider it proof that places like Greenway Coffee, Anvil and 13 Celsius have changed the way Houston drinks.

Feel free to sound off on what's missing in the comments. Praise is nice, too.
