It is good to drink such coffee on a summer day, when the heat warms up and the performance decreases. Want to get energy fast? Make an iced espresso toner.
Espresso tonic is also called coffee tonic or coffee tonic. The first part of this coffee cocktail was created in a cafe in the Swedish city of Helsingborg. In 2007, Ann Lonel created the espresso tonic and it quickly gained popularity. Today it is served all over the world, but most of the espresso tonic is loved in Scandinavia, the United States and South Asia. For the best flavor, use heavy roasted Ethiopian or Kenyan coffee and add plenty of ice.
Calories per serving:
1. Cold glass
Put 120g of edible ice in a thin-walled glass or clear 350ml beaker. If you are making the coffee in a smaller or larger pot, fill it with ice to the top.
Leave the dishes for a while to cool down well. On hot days, before making an espresso tonic, you can cool the pots in the refrigerator. In this case, apply ice immediately before preparing the coffee tonic.
2. Make an espresso
Grind 20 grams of strong roasted coffee. Prepare a double dose of espresso from it (volume of 60 ml). If you don’t have a coffee maker, use medium-grind beans and a French press. Instead of espresso, you can have cold coffee.
3. Pour the activator into a cup
Before preparing any drink, make sure that there is no excess water in the cup. To do this, grab an ice cube with a spoon, turn the glass over the sink, if there is liquid, it will flow out.
Put 1-2 slices of lemon in a glass of ice and pour 120 ml of your favorite tonic. For dishes over 350ml, use a 3:1 ratio of tonic to coffee. Stir in cup with a spoon to cool tonic evenly.
4. Add espresso
Pour pre-made, slightly cooled espresso into a glass with tonic and ice. Add the coffee in the thinnest stream possible, trying to get one of the ice cubes out. Ideally, the espresso will remain at the top of the cup, while the tonic at the bottom will remain clear. In this form, serve a refreshing drink to the table. Mix immediately before use.
