• 5 cl - Gin

• Ice

1. Make a double espresso by selecting the button on the S15 display

2. Mix the honey syrup, lemon juice and gin so that they are well blended and use them as a base for the cocktail

3. Fill a tall glass with ice

4. Add the tonic water to the glass, leaving 2 cm from the rim

Recommended settings

We recommend using a single-origin coffee from Ethiopia (floral and citric notes) or a single-origin coffee from Colombia (hints of caramel and citrus fruits). If the dispensing spout is motorised, set the height of the spout so that you can directly dispense into the chosen receptacle. For example, seta “Tall Espresso” recipe with the right spout height. For a mocktail version, use 2.5 cl orange juice instead of gin.
