A bubbly coffee drink that hits the spot for an afternoon pick-me-up both effervescent, bitter, sweet and creamy.


  • 56 oz tonic water, I used Q Tonic
  • 2 oz espresso (double shot), I used Red Bay Coffee’s Carver’s Dream
  • 3/4oz– 1 oz salted & sweetened lightly whipped cream
  • optional: candied orange peel


  1. Add tonic water to a glass filled with ice.
  2. Add Espresso over top.
  3. Slowly pour in whipped cream.
  4. Garnish with orange candy peel.


Fresh espresso is best, but you can use coffee from a mocha pot or even cold brew. Use what you have!

I used a small amount of Luxardo cherry syrup in the glass one time and it was a great addition. Add a tsp of your favorite flavored syrup if you’d like!
