It's hotter than a billy goat's ass in a pepper patch right now.

With almost every move causing you to break out in a sweat, the thought of imbibing anything warmer than room temperature sounds just about as appealing as a root canal.
Even so, we still need our caffeine.
Sure, it's easy enough to gulp down that morning coffee before stepping out into the wet oven outside our front doors, but that puts a damper on the relaxing morning routine.
Iced coffee is a better option.
Of course, not all cold java is created the same.
Rather than subject you to a watered-down, subpar drink or a withdrawal from caffeine -- that's only going to ruin your day -- we rounded up a list of the ten best iced coffees in Broward and Palm Beach counties.

One of the best places to find a brew in Delray Beach -- coffee or hops, that is -- the Coffee District is not just a pretty place to hang; it serves some damned good drinks. The iced coffee is not different from the rare beers on the premises. (The place gets hard-to-find items, like Goose Island Bourbon County.) For fans of caffeine, it offers a wide range of hot and cold drinks, including an iced coffee that's as smooth as can be. Here, freshness is key: The shop gets deliveries of medium house blend from locally roasted beans every couple of days.

With its first location opened just a couple of months ago in Lauderdale-by-the-Sea, this doughnut and coffee shop is reinventing the wheel in a good way -- equate it to the difference between rubber and wood wrapped with steel. Using a special process, similar but slightly different from hot brew, the shop makes its iced coffees from its own proprietary blend of smooth beans. It's the ideal treat to sip on the beach. Or in loose-fitting clothes with a doughnut in hand. Expect to see more locations -- Boca Raton, Delray Beach, Coconut Creek, Fort Lauderdale -- popping up across South Florida in the next few months.
