Minneapolis, MN – May 4, 2023
Caribou Coffee®, a national premium coffeehouse and Panera Brands company, announced today its new summer menu including a Classic Espresso Tonic and Cherry Peach Espresso Tonic. Both beverages are made with Fever-Tree Premium Tonic Water, which brings out the citrus notes in Caribou’s Cross Fox espresso to create a refreshing, lightly carbonated, cocktail-like beverage experience.
“Caribou Coffee continues to stay ahead of the curve by effortlessly embracing new trends within the industry into our already extensive menu of handcrafted beverages,” said Caribou Coffee’s Senior Vice President of Product and Procurement Matt Reiter. “Bringing espresso tonics into the mix, following our recent launch of iced espresso shakers, is a bold and unique offering that we are thrilled to introduce to our guests just in time for summer.”
Caribou continues to use premium ingredients in its handcrafted beverages, including non-GMO certified Fever-Tree Premium Tonic Water. Fever-Tree is made with the finest naturally sourced quinine from central Africa and a touch of Mexican bitter orange for a refreshing, subtle citrus taste and aroma.
This summer guests can also expect the permanent return of Raspberry Green Tea with Bubbles and Frozen Matcha with Bubbles. Caribou first launched bubble beverages as a limited-time offering in 2018 and have brought the drinks back every summer since. Due to popularity and requests from guests, Caribou is bringing them back permanently.

- Classic Espresso Tonic: Bold espresso, cane syrup and bubbly Fever-Tree Premium Tonic Water served over ice for a bold, unforgettable flavor.
