Coffee with Tonic: the cocktail that is sweeping the networks (and also has no alcohol)

A soft, sweeter and more caffeinated coffee, which falls like a summer cloud on a soft tonic, in which a slice of orange separates the two sections: the visual effect is very pretty, but, How is this combination prepared so that it is balanced in flavor and not only arty?

First of all, coffee lovers will know the basis of this cocktail—and of the many cocktails with coffee—the increasingly popular cold brew, a way of preparing coffee, so to speak, in the American style: cold, for more than twenty hours. “The coffee should be ground rather coarsely and left in cold water for almost a full day, filtering it two or three times,” Andrés Paparoni, Out of the Cup barista expert, explains to magasIN.
