Here’s to day 3 of my coffee guide around the world! Read MSNBC Itineraries’ article here.
Spain: Café Bombon
Espresso & condensed milk – usually in layers. Sounds pretty to look at but not my cup of tea…or coffee, rather.
Morocco: Café des Épices
Coffee mixed with a variety of Moroccan spices! Everything from cardamom to black pepper is mixed into the coffee, depending on the occasion (or mood of the brewer.)
France: Café au Lait
Coffee with LOTS of warm milk – usually for dunking baguettes. (I’d be more interested in the baguettes and breakfast pastries than the French coffee, but that’s just me.)
Pieces of reindeer- or cow-milk cheese in a cup of black coffee. Who would have thought that coffee and reindeer cheese go well together?
Ireland: Irish Coffee
Yes, just like we know it here in the states: hot coffee, sugar, Irish whiskey and whipped cream – the morning pick-me-up for college students!

The weather’s getting warmer and summer is right around the corner. ‘Tis the season for relaxing, getting a tan and drinking tasty summer cocktails.
When I was in college, one of my favorite places to dine in Ann Arbor was at Café Habana. (Not that I went out to eat much – I was, after all, a poor college student. But when I felt like treating myself, Habana was my first choice.) While they only had 2 dishes on the menu that were vegetarian (both were delicious, though), I would trot down the street to indulge in their classic Cuban Daiquiris. With only 3 ingredients, this drink is quick, easy and absolutely divine!
The Cuban Daiquiri
- 3 oz. white rum (preferably Cuban)
- Juice from 1 lime
- 2 tablespoons of white sugar (you can add more/less as desired)
Mix all ingredients, shake with ice and drink up! You can even garnish your martini glass with a sugar rim and a lime twist if you’re feeling glitzy. (Just remember to drink responsibly.)
