BM 103: Week 4, Day 2
Theme: Balkan States
While looking for recipes under this theme, I came across the frappe recipe and the interesting story behind its invention. Apparently a Necafe employee wanted to have coffee but didn’t have any hot water to make it. So he mixed Instant coffee, with ice water and ice cubes in a shaker and thus frappe was born!
It’s a very popular drink in Greece and it’s so easy to make. I wish I had come across this recipe at the start of summer than at the end of it. Take instant coffee, sugar and a little water in a bottle with a tight lid and shake it for a minute or two. I actually keep a kitchen timer, else I might shake for ten seconds and say it’s done :D. Pour this frothy mix into a tall glass filled with ice. Add water or if you prefer coffee with milk, add cold milk. That’s it! Frothy delicious frappe is ready to serve.
Recipe source : Classic Greek Frappe
- 2 teaspoons instant coffee powder
- 2-4 teaspoons sugar, or per taste
- 2 tablespoons water
- Ice cubes
- Milk or Water as needed
- In a clean glass jar with a tight lid, add the coffee, sugar and water. Screw the lid on and shake vigorously for about 2 minutes.
- Fill a tall coffee cup half way with ice cubes. Add the frothy coffee into it. Slowly add water and/or milk to the cups. Serve. I like to add water first and then a little milk to it.
And here it is with a little milk. Frothy still!
