Cafe Frappe (“ka-fay – fra-pay”) is how it’s pronounced and this beverage rivals the oft drank Greek coffee.
This is the Greek version of an ice coffee, simple to make, refreshing and delicious. Play around with the flavours…add some chocolate or french vanilla syrup, top it with whipped cream.
Before I lay out how to make it, you’ll need either a cocktail shaker, frappe shaker or a hand-held mixer. Purists will tell you that only the Greek market Nescafe will do but I find the North Amercian kind to work just as good!
Nescafe instant coffee
- Put 1 Tbsp of instant coffee into your glass or shaker along with 1 Tbsp of sugar and a splash of water.
- Shake vigorously or whiz until about almost 1/2 of the shaker/glass is frothed.
- Transfer froth to a glass and/or add cold water to almost fill the glass.
- Add cream/milk, 1 ice cube and serve with a straw and a glass/bottle of water on the side.
