Frappé is the most popular coffee served in Greece, especially during summer. It is an iced coffee drink with a thick frothy layer at the top made from instant coffee. Frappé is very easy to make using either a cocktail shaker or a (hand) mixer. The idea is to blend instant coffee with some water until a creamy foam forms, then add cold water and ice cubes and optionally some evaporated milk.
- Pour 15 ml of cold water in a glass or shaker. Add instant coffee and sugar.
- Blend with an electric hand mixer or with a shaker until all water becomes foam like a thick shiny cream.
- Poor into another glass or simply add chilled water, a few ice cubes and optionally some evaporated milk. Enjoy frappé in the afternoon with some Baileys instead of milk and you’ll get an amazingly cool and refreshing alcoholic drink!
- Enjoy your Greek style frappé!
