Iced coffee to tantalise your tastebuds
To celebrate Nespresso’s brand new limited edition capsules, Intenso on Ice and Leggero on Ice, celebrity chef Clement Pedro has stirred up three scrumptious Iced Coffee recipes to sip on this summer. Treat yourself to the first recipe in the series – a zesty, fresh and fabulous Coffee and Tonic with Orange.
Coffee and Tonic with Orange
40ml Nespresso Leggero on Ice
2 orange peels (without pith)
250ml good quality tonic water
100ml orange blossom water
Ice as required
Top up a large red wine glass with enough ice to half fill the glass.
Add the freshly prepared Nespresso Leggero on Ice to the ice along with a twist of orange peels and orange blossom water.
Stir to blend and dissolve into the ice.
Top the glass with more ice before pouring over the tonic water.
Hold a lighter to the remaining orange peel before squeezing, causing a burst of orange oil to flame.
Run the orange peel across the rim of the glass and serve immediately with a straw.
Voila! This refreshing coffee tonic is the perfect sundowner accompaniment to keep you chilled.
