If a restaurant features the name of a drink on their awning, it's probably pretty good. Reben Luncheonette in Williamsburg displays the name Morir Soñando on their awning and in a neon sign in their window. What could a drink that translates to "die dreaming" be made of? It's a simple combination of orange juice, evaporated milk, sugar, and ice cubes. Think "orange creamsicle" in drinkable form. The large metal tumbler and blocky ice cubes kept the drink refreshingly chilled.
