Who will love this Morning Beverage?
Anyone who enjoys coffee, and also enjoys tonic, will absolutely love this coffee tonic recipe. If you don’t like tonic, than you are probably out of luck. But if you’re the type of person who’s go-to drink at the bar is a vodka tonic or gin and tonic, than you are going to LOVE this easy morning drink! The quinine in the tonic water compliments the acidity of the coffee perfectly. Pouring in a splash of orange juice really helps to add a little sweetness and extra pizzazz to this effervescent drink!

How to make a coffee tonic:
It is really quite simple. You take cold brew coffee, ice coffee or cold espresso, and mix it with tonic water. At this point, you can drink it as is, OR you can add a little somethin-somethin to jazz it up! I like orange juice because it is slightly sweet and compliments the two bitter ingredients well, however people have been known to add a variety of other ingredients to it, such as cinnamon and even lime juice! Stir it all up in a glass filled with ice and you are ready to enjoy your bubbly morning beverage. And if you are trying to get your ‘girls day brunch’ on, I suggest adding your favorite spirit, such as gin, vodka or baileys Irish cream for a spiked tonic coffee!

When to drink fizzy coffee:
I first experienced tonic coffee about 2 years ago at a small coffee shop outside of Boston. I was so obsessed with it, I used to make it every day before work! It is a great quick morning beverage because you can just pour it all in your to-go cup, and you’re good! This is also a delightful brunch coffee idea, because you can always add alcohol to it! Orange coffee tonic can also be a wonderful holiday coffee idea! When you offer your family members coffee after Thanksgiving or Christmas dinner, they won’t be expecting this festive take on an ice coffee! Garnish it with an orange peel and thyme, and you will really be the talk of the party!
