Coffee Meets Tonic: How to Craft Your Own Espresso Tonic

Mozzo Coffee | 04 September, 2023

In recent years the espresso tonic has risen to become a trendy summer drink, earning itself a spot as a fresh classic. Crisp, fruity and bubbly, we’ve got an awesome recipe just for you featuring our fruity Signature blend. Feel free to craft it with or without a coffee liqueur, it’s your call. 

What you’ll need:


Our personal favourite recipe:

    • 18g ground coffee in; 36 - 40g brewed espresso out
    • 26 - 30 second extraction
  • Set the espresso aside to cool while you assemble the other ingredients
  • Fill your glass to the top with ice cubes
  • Pour in the tonic water until your glass is about ¾ filled
  • Optional step: pour a shot of coffee liqueur into your brewed espresso
  • Optional step: add vanilla syrup to your espresso and liqueur mixture to add extra sweetness
  • Pour the espresso mixture slowly over the tonic to create a contrasting effect between the dark layer of coffee and the tonic underneath
  • Serve immediately and enjoy!
