Red eye (drink)
Drip Brew coffee, to which espresso is added, may be called a Red Eye (1), Black Eye (2), or a Dead Eye (3), depending on the number of espresso shots added. A weaker variant of the drink is the Lazy Eye, which consists of a single shot of espresso added to a cup of decaffeinated coffee.
The Red Eye has many monikers, depending on the geographic region:
- In the Upper Midwest, this drink is ubiquitously referred to as a Depth Charge. This term is actually a federally registered trademark of the Minnesota company, Caribou Coffee, which has led to some legal issues with other coffee shops using the term on their menus or in advertising. 
- In New England, a single shot of espresso added to a cup of coffee is referred to as a Canadiano. It is considered a variation and a succession of the drink, the Americano.
- In the San Francisco Bay Area, it is often known as a Sledgehammer or a Hammerhead.
- In Alaska, it is known as a Sludge Cup, possibly in reference to the state's large petroleum industry.
- In the Pacific Northwest, a single and double shot is known as a Shot in the Dark and a Double Shot in the Dark respectively.
- At the coffehouse chain Dunkin' Donuts, the drink is known as a Turbo, and is available either hot or iced.
- In some regions, including the Mid-Atlantic, three shots of espresso added to a cup of coffee is called an Al Pacino due to his enjoyment of coffee drinks and his participation in a Vittoria Coffee commercial in 2010.
- In Baden-Württemberg, Germany, a shot of espresso added to a cup of coffee is called a Sell-Le Blanc Normal.
- US Forces in Iraq and Afghanistan refer to the drink as a MOAC (Mother Of All Coffee) in a play on the name of the GBU-43/B (Massive Ordinance Air Blast bomb) MOAB, colloquially referred to as the Mother Of All Bombs.
- At the fast-food restaurant chain, Sonic Drive-Ins, the drink is known as a Sonic Boom. It is composed of a shot of espresso added to either a shake or coffee.
- At the coffeeshop, LEONI Coffee, in Paramount, California, the name given to an espresso shot added to a cup of coffee is a very particular one. It is called a Lion Roar, since it is impossible for anyone to fall asleep at the roar of a lion.
