Red eye (drink)
Red eye is a common name for coffee with espresso. Other regular names include "shot in the dark", and "depth charge" - though, in the United States, this is a federally registered trademark of a company, Caribou Coffee, so usage is restricted. At the coffeehouse chain Dunkin' Donuts, the drink is known as a "turbo", and is available either hot or iced.
A double shot of espresso in the coffee may be termed a "black eye", and a triple shot a "dead eye".
