Cardamom-laced Turkish coffee makes a traditional finish to any good meal, and is often offered on the house in hummus shops around Israel as your plate runs low.
Add a sweetened alcohol base to create a liqueur, and you elevate the coffee to the realm of an elegant digestif. Sip it as is, for an after-dinner jolt, or mix it into a drink to get a delicious white Russian or coffee-flavored martini.
