The weather may be hot in Austin, but the drinks are ice cold.

The city just hit its first triple-digit day of the year, with more on the way. Don’t sweat it — we rounded up a few deals that will have you wishing for 100º days.

Armadillo Den, 10106 Menchaca Rd. | The hotter it gets, the more you’ll save on any draft brews with this deal — take $1 off when it’s 101º, $2 off when it’s 102º, and $3 off when it’s 103º or higher from 4 to 6 p.m. Mondays-Fridays.

Jo’s Coffee, multiple locations | Here’s a refreshing way to beat the heat. Every time it hits 100º or more, you can get half off lemonades (including the limited edition honey lavender lemonade) and Palmers at all Jo’s Coffee locations.

Upstairs at Caroline, 109 E. 7th St. | Hot temperatures call for cold sips, so you can enjoy $8 frozen drinks (like the Tropic Thunder and Guava-Rita) every time it hits 100º in Austin.

The Cavalier, 2400 Webberville Rd., Ste. A | Come in for $7 frozen daiquiris when it’s 100º or more, plus you can enjoy them on the patio, where you’ll find misting fans and sun shades.

Doc’s Backyard Grill, 5207 Brodie Lane, Ste. #100 | Frozen margaritas are $2 anytime the weather hits 100º or higher, but also during happy hour on Tuesdays.

Better Half, 406 Walsh St. | You don’t have to wait until the thermometer breaks to cash in on this summer special, but you do have to wait until after 3 p.m. on Slopee Sundays take half off of burgers and frozen drinks.
