The Voodoo that you do so well

For meltingly hot days, the French Broad Chocolate Lounge offers up this striking little number, a perfectly civilized float that remains both caffeine-free and vegan.

Even though the concoction of rose and hibiscus soda and fresh mango sorbet is light, bright and airy, the drink carries a mysterious name — the Voodoo. We asked owner Jael Rattigan, why so dark? “The Voodoo was conceived by and named after our fabulous night manager, Nga Vu. Voodoo translates better than Vudu, yes?”

We agree. We also dig the drink. The sodas are made with housemade syrup and the sorbet is made by Ultimate Ice Cream Company. It makes for a bubbly treat that’s not too sweet, not too floral, but as refreshing as they come. 10 S. Lexington Ave., 252-4181 http://frenchbroadchocolates.com
