Big thanks go to ‘So hungry I could blog‘ for this remarkable Espresso Soda recipe.
The perfect pick me up for the afternoon lull, the ‘syrup’ can be kept in the fridge and a soda made at the drop of a hat. Much more refreshing than iced milk-based coffee drinks, it would make the ideal partner to an afternoon spent outside in the summer sun (when the time comes)!
2 Freshly Brewed Espressos
1 1/2 tbsp Golden Caster Sugar
250 ml Soda Water
2 Slices Lemon Peel
1) For the syrup: Mix the espresso with the sugar and place in the fridge for at least 1/2 hour to chill.
2) In a jug or between two glasses, combine the espresso with the soda water and a good handful of ice. Twist the lemon peel into the serving glasses. Serve immediately.
