We deem the joint winners to be Peter Drum & Rees Bear for "Cosmic Latte" (with some editorial bias in the final choice).
* Our favourite suggestion because "Latteo" means "Milky" in Galileo's native Italian. So a nice cosmic conneection: "Via Lattea" is the "Milky Way" and the color of the Universe woould be pretty similar to the color of the Milky Way Galaxy, it is of course just the sum of the light of all the galaxies.
