I first tried a version of this orange espresso tonic drink on a recent trip. I’ll be honest: I was apprehensive. But the idea of mixing tonic and espresso sounded so unique that I couldn’t resist. Lo and behold, I fell in love with the combination!
The key, though, is the tonic. Tonic water is a slightly bitter, carbonated drink that is slightly sweetened. And the reason it works with espresso is that it balances out the boldness of espresso while adding just the right amount of sweetness.
Traditionally, espresso tonics have a citrus twist. This recipe uses a squeeze of orange juice. The mixture may be something new for you, but if you like espresso drinks, this may be your new favorite.
