An interesting combo of flavors in this coffee and tonic water combo!
When we first read about this combination of coffee and tonic on Tasting Table, we thought it sounded so crazy that we just had to try it, especially when we found out it is a trend that is sweeping the coffee houses in San Francisco. The combination of bubbly tonic and the bitter espresso combine to make a drink that is complex and surprisingly refreshing.

- Simple Syrup to taste
- 2 oz espresso
- 6 oz tonic water
Add ice cubes and tonic water into a glass. Slowly pour the espresso over the ice and tonic, allowing the tonic to mix the espresso and make a creamy bitter layer on top.
Gently stir to mix and if needed add a dash of simple syrup to make it a bit sweeter.
We recommend Fever Tree tonic water, which tastes really good!
