From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Red eye is a common name for coffee with espresso.[1] Other regular names include "shot in the dark",[2] and "depth charge" - though, in the United States, this is a federally registered trademark of a company, Caribou Coffee, so usage is restricted.[3] At the coffeehouse chain Dunkin' Donuts, the drink is known as a "turbo", and is available either hot or iced.[4]

A double shot of espresso in the coffee may be termed a "black eye", and a triple shot a "dead eye".[5]
