Herein is a warning about things that don’t go together.
- Old seats and 29″ seat pitches
- Low Cost Airlines and Free Food
- Airport security and densely packed bags
- AMD and Intel Optane memory
- Grammarly and Microsoft Word’s Grammar checkers fighting each other.
I’d like to add a new one to this – Espresso with Tonic Water.
Yes. You read that line right.
Caffe Nero is currently offering this with two options in the UK:
- Espresso with Fever-Tree Tonic Water (£3.75)
- Espresso with Ginger Fever-Tree Tonic Water (£3.85)
Note, Regional pricing may vary
I had… well. Indeterminate thoughts about it when I saw this Saturday.
By Sunday I was more than curious how it could be.
And I wish I didn’t and walked past.
Sparking and Caffeine. We know this works with cola… but with coffee… I’m honestly not sure. But that wasn’t the worst part – it was the taste.
The tastes honestly didn’t blend well. I don’t know what I was expecting, but I didn’t expect to taste a bit like vomit.
Caffe Nero suggests this blend is
“light and refreshing Fever-Tree tonic water is first poured over ice and topped with a double shot of our signature espresso.”
Whilst I do like their espresso, this combination does not work.
And yes, it blends down.
Please. If you see this in the shops (with at least Caffe Nero’s in Heathrow Terminal 2, 3 and 5), run a mile away from it. Have an iced coffee, have a hot coffee… but this isn’t refreshing.
It tastes AWFUL.
