    Talking with extra zing, please

    Hello. I wonder what "zing" means in this context below.
    Please help. Thank you.

    ------These sentences are from a children's novel.
    (A girl is ordering drink in the cafe.)

    "What can I get you to drink?"
    "How about A-Shot-in-the-Dark? It's one of my favorites. With exra zing, please."

    Re: with extra zing, please

    A "shot in the dark" is a name for a "red eye", which is espresso added to regular brewed coffee. My guess is extra "zing" means extra espresso to make it stronger.
