One of Algeria's oldest companies is a soft drink producer called Hamoud Boualem and founded in 1878 in Algiers. They make a range of sodas including Selecto, Hamoud, and Slim. It's been called the Algeria cola. Sounds like it might go well with rum.
I just ate and drank at Bacchanal, a new restaurant / bar on Bowery in NYC and they have a dessert section of cocktails created by Naren Young. It's a fun section. They have a White Russian on the menu and since Russia might be on the way out, this could be it. He makes it with Russian vodka, Galliano Ristretto, vanilla, spiced tincture, and chocolate cream. Much better than eating dessert... drink it.
