Espresso and lemonade might seem like an unlikely pairing, but the combination is exactly what makes up a beverage called 'The Thunderbolt' served at the Smith Canteen in Brooklyn.

Lemonade is a drink that's a childhood favorite of Smith Canteen's owner and chef Rob Newton. Naturally, it made sense to combine this summer classic with something coffee-related for an unusual and sophisticated take on the citrus drink.

This refreshing summer beverage is blended with an Ethiopian coffee roasted by Counter Culture Coffee that has a blend of both citrus and ginger notes. This is one unusual coffee beverage that's like a hybrid of the sweet American South and an Americano all the way from Italy.
