The best thing to bring home from Malta is the country’s own soft drink, Kinnie. Developed in Malta in 1952, the non-alcoholic drink is a bittersweet cola flavored with oranges and a secret mix of herbs. Kinnie mixes well with alcohol; try it with scotch, a slice of orange and ice. You’ll want to get it while you’re in Malta because it’s very hard to find outside the country, though you can usually pick up a six-pack of Kinnie at the Malta International Airport before you catch your flight. There’s also a diet version of Kinnie, for those watching their calories or sugar intake.
