What are the common ingredients of a traditional Greek beverage recipe?
Greece is known for its delicious cuisine, and its beverages are no exception. One popular Greek beverage is called frappé, which is a cold coffee drink made with instant coffee, sugar, water, and milk. It’s the perfect refreshing drink for a hot summer day. In this recipe, we’ll show you how to make frappé the traditional Greek way.
- 2 teaspoons instant coffee
- 2 teaspoons sugar
- 1/4 cup cold water
- 3/4 cup cold milk
- Ice cubes
In a cocktail shaker or a blender, add the instant coffee and sugar.
Add the cold water and stir or blend until the mixture is frothy and light brown in color.
Pour the mixture into a tall glass and add ice cubes.
Slowly pour in the cold milk, while gently stirring with a long spoon. The milk will create a creamy foam on top of the drink.
Enjoy your traditional Greek frappé! For an extra touch, you can add a heart-shaped foam on top by using a handheld milk frother.
