Tallimanngorneqm kaffi - Friday coffee in Greenlandic. Impossible to pronounce. If you are interested in the pronunciation then look HERE
Greenland is not a country but an autonomous territory within the Kingdom of Denmark.
The best thing about Greenland must be it's coffee recipe. Hot coffee is mixed with whiskey, Kahlua and Grand Marnier then covered by an Arctic heap of whipped cream.
The most common story about Greenlandic coffee is that it is "the whole of Greenland in one mug." The whiskey is supposed to represent all the "rough" parts of the country: its men, its hunters, its fisherman and its rugged landscape. The Kahlua, all the "nice" things about Greenland; its women, its beautiful scenery and its animals. The men and the women then come together in the cold, dark polar nights, represented by the hot coffee. The whipped cream on top signifies the icebergs and glaciers the country is famous for. The Grand Marnier is the finishing touch, set alight before being poured on top, the flames mimicking the Northern Lights.
- 1. Add 20ml (about half a shot) of whiskey to a mug.
- 2. Then 20ml Kahlua.
- 3. Pour in 300ml coffee
- 4. Add some whipped cream on top.
- 5. Pour 20ml of Grand Marnier, set on fire, over the whipped cream.
Sounds like the best way to keep out the cold.
The official language spoken in Greenlandic and is spoken by about 80 percent of the entire population (about 50 000 people). Danish is also used.
