Since I learned how to make a Greek frappé, I’ve been making it almost daily. I love coffee more than life and this just happens to be one of my favourite ways to enjoy it. When I visited Greece, people over there pretty much downed these like water. Wherever you turned, there was always someone with a frappé. It’s basically a foam-covered iced coffee drink made from instant coffee, water and optional sugar. It packs more of a punch and is way healthier for you than a regular iced coffee.
Greek Frappés are usually made in three degrees of sweetness – one, two or three sugars. I take 1-2 sugars because I like it a bit sweet, but still want to taste the coffee.
What you’ll need
2 tsp nescafé classic
1-3 tsp sugar
Put coffee, sugar and two fingers high of water into a tall glass. Whisk together with a frother whisk until it’s a light coloured foam. It’s best to use a whisker for a milkier result, but if you don’t have one you can add the ingredients to a jar instead, seal the lid and shake until it turns into a foam. Transfer into a tall glass.
Add 4-5 cubes of ice, and then a bit more water until the glass is almost full. Stir with a spoon. You can drink as is, but I like to add a dash of milk to taste, then stir again.
Serve with a straw and enjoy.
P.s. A bit of baileys in there takes it to a whole other level.
Have you tried a Greek Frappé before?
