Culy tests the TikTok trend of espresso with orange juice (say what?)

Must Try

We can’t ignore it: the most diverse food trends are shared on TikTok. And as much as we love culinary video content, we have our reservations about some of these trends. At the moment, for example, there are massive videos of espresso with orange juice. Yes, we know what you’re thinking.

Not an attractive idea

That’s what we thought too. On paper, this doesn’t seem remotely appealing to us, but admittedly, it doesn’t look too bad on some videos. Because by adding not only orange juice, but also sparkling water and ice cubes to your espresso, you get a pretty sparkling situation.

So basically an espresso spritz. By the way, if you do a little research into the drink, you mainly read reactions from people who find it surprisingly tasty – especially from those who were initially very critical.

Espresso with orange juice: the test

The question remains whether all these people on TikTok are simply exaggerating or whether it is really a brilliant combination. Any way to find that out? Putting it to the test, of course. Culy is going to test it!

For our taste test, we base ourselves on a recipe that seems most delicious to us, as shown in the video below. Specifically: we fill a glass with ice cubes, two slices of orange and a little orange juice. We dilute that with sparkling water and at the end we add the shot of espresso.

We loved this

Is it terrible? No. In fact, it drinks quite nicely. Are we falling back with pleasure? Not that again. Since we don’t use an exact recipe, we just play with the proportions a bit. They turn out to be everything, especially the amount of orange juice. Too little and it becomes too bland, too much and the balance turns to acid.

However, it is true that once those proportions are in balance (tip: experiment with this yourself), it is best to have a balanced drink. In any case, it can serve perfectly as a non-alcoholic aperitif, although we think that this drink could also use some Angostura bitters .

Espresso spritz like the TikTok trend

The conclusion

Conclusion? Espresso with orange juice isn’t nearly as terrible as it sounds. Will it be our new body drink? Not that either. Still, we love to keep an eye on current food trends – while sipping a good old espresso.
