Description

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


Ingredients

Scale
  • 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

 


Instructions

  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.

Notes

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!
