Midtown Detroit’s Great Lakes Coffee Roasting Co. is an ideal place to hang out or do some work. But it poses quite the dilemma. Do you get coffee or a cocktail? The Panacea allows you to have both. It combines coffee with rum, making for one potent libation. Some components are made in-house, such as the five spice syrup, which elevates the drink with its warm flavors, and the infused rum. With one of these in hand, you’ll really get some work done (or not). —Dorothy Hernandez
