Need some relief from our Valley’s scorching triple degree temperatures? Adults and children alike can find treats to cool them down at The Orchard, 7100 N. 12th St., which is surrounded by more than 80 citrus trees on a historic orchard property,

For the entire month of July, Splurge at the Orchard will offer 2-for-1 scoops all day long. Swing by next door to Luci’s at the Orchard, where happy hour includes half-off on smoothies & pastries after 5 p.m.

Children can play in the splash pad while the adults enjoy their smoothie—or a different kind of cool beverage from Pomelo, a full-service restaurant serves American food and craft cocktails with an Arizona twist.

Running through August, Pomelo at the Orchard will offer $6 cocktails all day long, this includes all alcohol types. The only exception is Pomelo’s specialty cocktails, which will be offered for just $8.

Specialty cocktails include options such as the Run for the Roses, with Four Roses Bourbon, fresh lemon juice, R&W Peach Liqueur and Cinnamon Syrup; and the Bellissimo, with Pomelo vodka, blackberry thyme syrup, fresh grapefruit juice and sparkling wine.
