  • I visited my neighborhood IKEA the other day and was fascinated by how you literally enter the world of Swedish design. From the bookshelves stocked with Swedish classics to the little trinkets scattered around the store that you can't avoid buying due to the price, an adventure to IKEA is like leaving the world we have been so accustomed to.

    Our adventure came to an end with the famous (not actual size) 50 cent hotdog, and with the daily special adding a drink for a total of a dollar, we couldn't pass it up (if nothing to ditch the change in my pocket).

    I got my cup and looked for the iced tea and lemonade, and realized that I wouldn't be drinking an Arnold Palmer, until my friends started praising the Lingonberry juice. After a sip, I couldn't resist. The perfect Arnold Palmer can be matched with pretty much any meal, with a subtle sweet flavor yet being pale enough to compliment any food. The only thing missing, sometimes, is that little zing.

    The lingonberry substitute for lemonade might have that little kick to improve the worlds best drink.
