On a hot summer day, indulging in a sweet, refreshing, frozen treat is a great way to cool down. For something different, head over to La Tía Joanna in Old Town Goleta and try a mangonada. A popular Mexican fruit drink, mangonadas are made with shaved ice and mango puree and topped with chamoy, a sauce made from pickled fruit that presents flavors both sweet and tart, fruity and savory. La Tía Joanna adds a twist to their creation: Tajín, a Mexican seasoning made primarily of chili, but that also contains lime and salt. The drink is then sprinkled with tamarind-flavored candy called Bamburindo and a scoop of freshly cut mango pieces marinated in lime. For just $5, La Tía Joanna’s mangonada offers big flavors for a small price. Be advised that La Tía Joanna only takes cash. La Tía Joanna is at 5844 Hollister Avenue, Goleta.
