Carbonated Coffee for Summer

Coffee Soda 6

When I saw this coffee soda on Man Made DIY a few weeks back I thought, ew, weird. But then I thought, welp, better try it. And so here we are. This is an interesting twist on iced coffee if you’re tired of the latte version.

Man Made has a whole system for making special double-strong cold brewed coffee.

But I wasn’t so picky, opting instead for just brewing my favourite espresso double strength and letting it cool before straining and chilling.

The process is pretty simple: you have your chilled super-strong coffee, a large glass, some of your favourite fizzy water, an orange, and a vegetable peeler. And some ice, but that stayed in the freezer while I took this photo.

Fill your glass about half full with your cold coffee and plop in some ice cubes. You can sweeten the coffee if you wish (I keep a small jar of simple syrup in the fridge for this very purpose). Use the vegetable peeler to scrape up a good-sized chunk of orange peel.

Top the glass off with soda water. Squeeze the peel over the beverage to get the orange oils in there.

Then rub the oily peel around the edge of the glass before plopping it right into the coffee.

And that’s it. It’s definitely different, but I think I like it. Give it a try and tell me what you think!

  1. I’ll be honest, my first reaction is “ew” but I’m enough of a coffee addict that this is definitely worth a try! This would be really nice alternative for those scorching hot summer days!
