I have a client who sent me a soda with a payment the other week, its from NY here is a link to their site:

The soda is made with espresso (in some manner do not ask me exactly how).  As the weather warms up I know people look for cold drinks to serve and was wondering everyones thoughts on trying out this type of product in a shop!

 

Cheers!

I am glad to see this discussion took off as well as it did!  Thank you all for your input thus far!

Agreed. It's so easy to be enticed by over sweetening and missing the point. Thx for the reminder Jason.

I think Nick's recipe sounds good.  With the easy ability to drink cold brewed coffee or toddy, I don't think I'd be interested in drinking something that tasted uber sweet and uncoffee like..
I revisited the cold brewed coffee soda and got some good results. Toddy concentrate+simple syrup+carbonated water. It was actually really nice. It's tricky though, because you think you're drinking a cola, then you're surprised with coffee flavor.
In case anyone is still wondering, we ended up settling on a NOLA style cold brew instead of the espresso soda. I like the sting of the carbonation but I finally decided that I simply liked the cold brew better overall as a flavor (and really showed off the coffee well). It's unsweetened and just a touch of half and half on top. Called it our "Cloudy Day Cold Brew" and it seems to be a big hit here!
