Greek frappe and other summer drinks

Post by Hank W. » Mon May 19, 2003 12:19 pm

Frappe is the dynamo of Greek coffee drinks, an unlikely combination of instant coffee (almost exclusively the brand Nescafe), sugar, water, and milk. The instant coffee granules, sugar and a little water are either shaken together or beaten together in the glass until they form thick creamy foam. To this, cold water and ice are added. Finally, a few drops of milk (if desired) are also added. Frappe is served with a straw and the connoisseurs measure out the hours over elongated sips of this turbo-charged drink.

Ice coffee

Make some pretty strong coffee. Mix in sugar or honey. Add about a quarter or a third of milk. Poor into a bottle. Chill.

Enjoy with ice cubes. Will stay in fridge for a week.
