7-Eleven via Facebook
It's July in Miami. That means 90 degree temperatures and afternoon thunderstorms that only make it hotter out. You know what you need? A cold Slurpee -- the icy beverage that causes a painful-yet-pleasurable brain freeze and stains your tongue bright red or blue. Now, how about getting one for free? Today is July 11, better known as 7-Eleven day and America's favorite convenience store is giving away free small Slurpees to anyone until 7 p.m. We feel cooler just talking about it.

You know what other made up holiday falls on this day? National Mojito Day. Yeah. We know it's not exactly Christmas, but seriously any excuse to have a mojito is a good one. For extra points, try the coconut mojito at 15th & Vine ($14). Made with Flor de Caña rum, lime juice, simple syrup, Coco Lopez, and mint, its creamy, minty taste is perfect for a Miami afternoon.
