As we been going through this time, one thing that is helping me most is coffee. I have always loved coffee and since going on TIKTOK, where I saw this very tasty-looking one, i thought I’d try making it.
It is very easy and delicious, quite like a small dessert.
What you want to do is have instant coffee. Depends how many cups of coffee you want to make, add equal amounts of coffee and sugar, 1 teaspoon of coffee per person. Here I made two, so I added two spoons of coffee and sugar to taste, which can also be replaced with vanilla sugar if you like the added lovely aroma.
Then to that you just add 2 tablespoons of warm water and then whisk. I found that warm water is way better than cold since it really helps with dissolving the coffee better, since cold brew takes more time. I used an electric whisker for a quicker way. because it also ends up having a thicker consistency for a shorter time. Whisking by hand is great, but it takes quite some time to reach the desired step.
Next add some ice and pour whatever type of milk you like.
Finally, just pour the foamy coffee (which smells amazing, by the way!) in the glasses and there you go.
I added some crushed coffee grounds on top and cinnamon for an added taste. You can add any spice you like, and make it fit any mood you’re up for.
I’m planning to try to make it with warm milk and see how that works for a warm drink, but the weather is improving, so I’d rather have iced coffee for now and enjoy it along with some much- needed sunshine.
Ingredients // for 1 cup:
- 1 teaspoon coffee
- sugar to taste
- 1 tablespoon of warm water (I find warm water works better with dissolving the coffee since cold brew takes more time)
- ice cubes
- milk (whichever kind you prefer)
- spices to taste (I added cinnamon)
Whisk coffee, sugar, and water well by hand or with an electric mixer until foamy.
Pour milk into the glass, add the ice cubes, and then add spoonfuls of the coffee foam on top of the milk. It will stay afloat and not mix in the beginning.
Finally, add whichever spice you prefer on top, take a picture (because how can you not, it’s so pretty), and then stir and enjoy!
Let’s make these days as enjoyable as possible, and if that’s a cup of coffee that takes a little effort and you haven’t tried before, than just do it! Who knows, I might try another one soon…
Lots of love,
