    I walked into a coffee house today looking for my caffeine fix and thinking that it is too hot outside to order a hot cup of coffee. Up on the board was one of their Summer Specials: Coca Cola served over ice with a double shot of Espresso.

    My oh my, I am hooked... I have just discovered my new favorite drink!! I am convinced that this is the same elixir that the gods drink when they are hanging out by the pool on a hot summer day. Have any of you folks ever heard of this combination before?

    I haven't had a soda in over 4 years, this is now making me rethink my streak. If you throw in a shot of heavy cream, I may just break down and do it.

    And yet there are some who claim that one cannot improve upon perfection.

    They are too deadly nowadays. I'll have a 20oz on July 4th. Then no more for me till next year.

    I wonder if this is like the limited release of Coke I had a few years ago.

    It was called Coke Black.

    It only came in 8 or 10oz bottles.

    It had a strong taste to it, and may or may not have involved coke mixed with coffee, or espresso, or licorice variants. I forget the deal, anyway but it was DIFFERENT.

    Not a refresher either, more of an apertif.

    Sounds disgusting. Sick and wrong. Also, very tempting and the thought is making my mouth water. WTF?

    Not to hijack, but in Germany Coke mixed with beer is a very popular drink too.

    cysoto: do you ever drink iced coffee?

    we have a heat wave and no a/c at my house. so i am brewing iced coffee: soak grinds in cold water at room temp for 24 hours ( can make is stronger to hold up to ice). strain. enjoy. is milder than hot brewed - less acid - IIRC.

    I just make regular espresso in much less time.

    Dump it in a mason jar and let it cool

    16oz beer pint, in the freezer.

    load it with ice and set aside.

    Take the almost cool espresso and put two packets of sugar in the raw and a couple of splendas in the jar, shake. Stir in whole table cream till mocha -ish.

    Pour over the iced glass. Awesome.

    I just made one of these. Used my sodastream to carbonate water, mixed it with cola syrup from William Sonoma's(sodastream syrup is awful), and mixed in some espresso from my Keurig. It turned out very tasty.
