The Drink: Lakkris Latte at Budin
The Price: $10
The gist: It's no secret that Scandinavia is a pricey place - but we were still shocked to hear about his $10 latte, by far the most expensive you get can in NYC. It's definitely a globe-hopper: the Ethiopian beans are roasted in Norway, and the drink is flavored with Danish licorice syrup and powder. It also comes with a piece of licorice candy, and is served on a silver platter alongside a glass of water.
Worth It? We can't lie - this one of the best lattes we've ever tried, the smooth, bold roast was a perfect match with the potent anise flavor and salty finish. Meanwhile, the creamy foam on top, dappled with licorice powder, was addictive enough that we immediately scooped it off the top with a spoon like a kid mauling an Oreo.
