Keep Cool and Caffeinated: Houston's Top 10 Iced Coffee Drinks
7. Cafe sua da milkshake at The Burger Guys

This is the sole milkshake entry on the list (not counting the milkshake-like granita at Agora), but it deserves a spot for being both highly caffeinated and for improving upon the traditional Vietnamese iced coffee -- something we never thought was possible. Pro tip: Order this at lunch and dip your duck fat fries into it. Your arteries may not thank me, but your stomach will.
6. Iced Mayan mocha latte at Dirk's
The "Mayan" mocha at Dirk's is a welcome twist on the standard mocha latte, giving the coffee the flavor of bittersweet chocolate that finishes clean and doesn't come off as cloying. If regular mochas are far too sweet for you, try a Mayan mocha instead.
5. Honey bear iced latte at Catalina Coffee
This isn't technically called a "honey bear latte," but it makes the kids at Catalina laugh when you order it that way. If you don't like your super-serious baristas cracking a smile every now and then, you can order it by its regular name: iced latte with honey. Either way, it's a simple and refreshing treat in the hot weather from a place whose hot coffee is usually too good to pass up.
