Espresso and tonic water has been taking the summer streets of New York City and London by storm. While we at Edible remain forever true to the G&T, the E&T has a few advantages:

  1. Drinking it before noon doesn’t make you a degenerate.
  2. You can have two or three and still safely drive home (although you might be bouncing around in the car).
  3. Pregnant friends and teetotallers can partake.

To make one, simply fill a tall glass with ice and pour in your favourite tonic water. Add a shot of espresso poured over a metal spoon (to absorb the heat). Do not stir.

Garnish with a slice of lemon or curl of orange rind to complement the flavour profile of the coffee beans and tonic you’ve chosen.
