Quick definition: Espresso Tonic is made with tonic water, ice, and chilled espresso.
It has a delightful balance of sweetness and bitterness that can be tailored to your taste preference.
Usually served in a glass with ice, the espresso shot is carefully poured over the tonic water, creating a layered drink that gradually blends together as you sip.
A standard serving typically includes 6-8 ounces of tonic water and 2 ounces of espresso, but you can get creative and experiment with different flavored syrup or fruit juice. And yes, you can even throw in a garnish.
It’s like heaven in a glass.
Yup, because it’s a perfectly balanced drink where the coffee flavor blends nicely with the tonic water, creating a unique and delightful taste experience.

Indeed, there’s something truly pleasant about this drink that’s why it’s always trending.
And because espresso tonics are so delicious, it’s no wonder they’re becoming more and more popular!
Believe it or not, the origin of espresso tonic is very humble.
It all started at Koppi Roasters Cafe in Helsingborg, Sweden. The idea came from Anne Lunell, one of the cafe’s founders, after a staff party where they had leftover tonic, syrup, and espresso.
When the cafe officially opened, they added a drink called Kaffe & Tonic to the menu.
And guess what? It quickly became a crowd favorite!
In fact, for the next decade, Kaffe & Tonic was the most sought-after cold beverage on the menu.
As mentioned earlier, this coffee drink has only two (2) main ingredients: espresso and tonic water. But in this section, we’ll discuss everything we can add to make the most out of your Espresso Tonic today.
And that’s it! Enjoy your homemade espresso tonic or cold brew tonic!
They are both carbonated water. Their only difference is that tonic contains added quinine and sugar. Tonic water derives its bitter taste from quinine, which is then balanced by added sugar.
The Espresso Tonic beverage is typically served in a highball glass over ice. You can either gently stir the drink to mix the espresso and tonic or savor it in layers as the coffee gradually falls at the bottom of the glass.
Pouring the tonic water into the glass with ice prior to slowly adding the espresso is the key to making an espresso tonic without foam.
