Orange Vietnamese Coffee

This beverage is inspired by Dan McLaughlin aka @softpourn. You can check out his videos on TikTok for awesome coffee ideas. I am not sure what to think of this coffee; it is a love or hate affair. At 1st sip, I thought it was bizarre, but the more sips I drank, I began to like it in a weird way.

This is the kinda beverage that you need to give a shot at and find out for yourself. It is all up to your palate. This is not the original recipe. This is just my inspired version, you have to check it out on @softpourn's TikTok page for the original recipe (sadly, I cannot find the direct link).

If I am not wrong, he uses espresso, ice cubes, orange slices and sparkling water. I hope you will give this idea a try. Cheers!
