Frappe: How to make the Greek frozen coffe “Frappe”
You got to believe that people coming back from Greece for holidays they will always start telling you about how beautiful the Parthenon was, how great Acropolis is, the Greek Islands etc. etc.. That is true…but they always…always talk about that Greek frozen coffee that they drunk and was the best thing they ever had… Frappe!
Well, coffee is on our tradition, no matter what we do , no matter when we will always have a cup of coffee. The best business deals are made on coffee time and most probably some of our first dates… (hmm… )
Frappe is the classic frozen coffee drink that Greeks are having during summer. Its so easy to make, but it takes hours until they drink it.
The essential ingredients for Frappe -the most important drink in Greece- are: (drums)
Milk (if you want)
Sugar (if you like it sweet like life)
Ice (LOTS OF IT)
So how we do that stuff?
In a shaker or jar, add 2-3 tablespoons of cold water, 1 teaspoon of instant coffee, and sugar to taste (1 of sugar for medium-sweet).
Close tightly and shake well, until the mixture appears to be all with foam.
Pour the foam into a water glass, add, 3-4 ice cubes, milk to taste, fill it up the rest with water and stir.
Serve with a straw.
Depending on your taste you can add more sugar or less. It’s the perfect way to wake up and start your day on hot summer day. Check out and the cool videos.
