3. Cool down with a cholado
Raspadilla, granizado, raspado, piragua, cholado…Call it what you will, but one thing is for sure and is that there’s nothing quite as refreshing as a cup of absolute frozen goodness to help combat the sticky Miami heat. And when they look as good as Amazonica’s cholados do…well let’s just say we’re glad Miami’s all-year-round hot weather gives us the perfect excuse to grab one every single day!
