How to prepare the cult drink

For the popular coffee creation you need only a few ingredients and the preparation is very easy:

  • Fill a highball glass with ice cubes
  • Pour 200 ml tonic water into the glass

Attention: The espresso does not have to cool down first before it goes into the drink!

Thanks to the ice cubes, the espresso tonic is immediately chilled and you can enjoy the refreshing drink without delay.

When carefully pouring the espresso into the glass, experienced baristi like to talk about floating. The espresso should not mix completely with the tonic water, but float on the surface. Therefore, the more carefully you pour the espresso and the stronger the espresso, the more likely it is to float. A special highlight: The floating layer effect makes your espresso tonic a real feast for the eyes!
