    strong black coffee and soda water

    Dear All,
    What is a strong black coffee and soda water for you? I mean, when you are in a bar drinking it, you drink:
    a) a black coffee made with soda water
    b) a black coffee to which you have added soda water in a second moment
    c) first a black coffee and then also a bit of soda water?

    Thanks in advance!
    S

    I would take this as an order for a strong black coffee, accompanied by a glass of soda water.

    Agreed. This sounds like a typical "morning after" hangover remedy. I've never heard of mixing coffee and soda water, but I have heard of using a combination of caffeine (black coffee) to alleviate a headache and glass of soda water on the side to settle an upset tummy after a night of excessive partying.

    Therefore you have a cup of coffee and a glass on your table and they are not mixed in a single cup.... and you drink a bit of coffee and then a bit of soda water...
