Some friends and I went to a restaurant here in Stockholm the other night and ordered a margarita. These are the margaritas we received. Fork and eyeglasses for scale.
Let me show you the average margarita in the U.S. Now THIS is how a margarita should be!
And by the way, what’s up with the burnt, blackened limes they put in the Swedish margaritas? This is the second time this has happened at 2 different places. Did they just shrivel up because it’s winter?
A few summers ago as we were relaxing at a Swedish “beach,” a man came around wearing a white backpack with black spots and a hose attached. He was “THE COFFEE COW.” His special backpack was full of coffee and he would fill you up right there on the beach for a low price. My husband thought this was the most genius idea he had ever seen.
However, you have to understand that:
1. Swedes are crazy about coffee.
2. For some reason, coffee at the “beach” just works here.
The reason this is on my mind is because I saw a girl yesterday morning doing the same thing at the subway station. Now THAT’s a genius idea! In my opinion, it fits better than at the beach.
Coffee Cow wouldn’t go over well on Gulf Coast beaches where I come from.
But a Margarita Cow? Now you’re talking.
