What are the necessary ingredients for making a classic Greek frappé coffee?
- 1 teaspoon instant coffee
- 2 teaspoons sugar (or to taste)
- 2-3 ounces water
- Milk (optional)
- Ice cubes
- In a jar or shaker, add the instant coffee, sugar, and water. Shake vigorously for about 30 seconds or until the mixture becomes frothy and creamy.
- Fill a tall glass with ice cubes, leaving some space on top for the coffee mixture.
- Pour the coffee mixture over the ice cubes, using a spoon to scoop out any remaining froth from the jar or shaker.
- Add milk (if desired) and stir gently.
- Enjoy your classic Greek frappé coffee!
- To make your frappé coffee even creamier, use a hand-held frother or a blender to mix the coffee, sugar, and water.
- You can adjust the amount of sugar and water to your liking. Some Greeks prefer their frappé coffee extra sweet, while others like it more bitter.
- If you don’t have instant coffee, you can use ground coffee. In this case, mix the ground coffee and sugar with a small amount of boiling water until it dissolves, and then add cold water and proceed with the recipe.
