Today I made the well known Greek ice coffee called frappé . This is one of my favorite coffee drinks to drink during the summer. I often make it at home as well as order it when I’m vacationing in Greece. I love everything about this drink, it’s super easy to make, it has a great flavor and it’s perfect for hot summer days. I’m addicted and in love with coffeee, I drink a lot of coffee and I know the struggle is real when it comes to drinking hot coffee in a 100 degrees. Therfor a frappé is perfect replacement and it get’s me going. Did you know that the word frappé is originally a fresh word that means chilled with ice? how cool is that.. In New England a frap is a thick milkshake. But back to the point, Frappé is the best ice coffee I know of. The thing about it is that you can easily make your own version of it by adding differnt flavors etc, it’s all up to you what you like to do beyoned the recipe.
Here is basic Greek Frappé recipe;
2 TBS of instant coffee ( preferable Nescafe)
2 TBS of Water ( you can use 4 if you want.)
2 Teaspoons of sugar
Milk ( optional)
How to make Hetty’s Greek Frappé;
- Add 2 TBS of instant coffee and 2 TBS of water into a blender/handmixer or drink mixer. Mix it well togehter for about 15 secounds.
- fill up a tall glass with ice cubes. When the coffee foam is ready add them over the ice cubes and fill up the glass with water and a hint of milk if you like. Add 2 teaspoons of sugar and gently stir it inn with a straw. The ice cold Frappé is now ready to be served.
You can easily add the sugar at the beginning with the coffee and the water if you want, or you can add a variety of flavors/sirups etc.
