It is going to be another hot summer in 2019, and here’s a delicious way you can stay cool in Lower Hutt.
Locals, Wellingtonians and visitors to the region will be able to cool off in the summer heat when New Zealand’s only cold drink challenge kicks off this month on Monday 14 January through 3 February.
The “Cool As” Summer Refresher Drink Challenge, into its fourth year, will see 15 hospitality operators including cafes, restaurants, bars and a bakery create their own signature summer refresher drinks for people to enjoy over three weeks. Customers will be the given the chance to vote for their favourite drink by ballot or on “Cool As” Summer Refresher’s Facebook page, with the winning drink declared at the end of the challenge.
The challenge, founded by Hutt City Council, is the summer version of the popular winter hot chocolate challenge, ‘Sweet As’. These challenges inspire local hospitality businesses to be creative and attract people to the Lower Hutt CBD, and have grown in popularity since they were launched in 2016.
