From whipped dalgona coffee to a freddo cappuccino, TikTok is no stranger to coffee trends. The latest of these is the sparkling Americano, which is a refreshing alternative to hot Americanos.
If this new style of coffee is on your radar, you might be wondering what you need to make it. Luckily, it only requires a couple of ingredients and a small amount of equipment.
A regular Americano is espresso mixed with hot water, while a sparkling Americano mixes espresso with sparkling water. This creates a refreshing, carbonated type of iced coffee that's perfect for hot days.
You'll need a few ingredients and bits of equipment to make this drink. You may already have some of these, but if not, you'll need to buy them.
You can make a sparkling Americano in four simple steps, which makes it an obvious choice to whip up on a hot day.
