The Carajillo Tónico Is Going to Be the Drink of the Summer


The Carajillo, a classic Spanish coffee cocktail, is popular in Mexico City as a party drink. Originating in Spain, it consists of equal parts espresso and Liquor 43 served over ice.

The Carajillo Tónico is a bubbly highball take on the classic combination of coffee and sweet Spanish liqueur. Tonic tones down the intense sweetness of Licor 43, while carbonation creates a refreshing layer.
