This tastes like a Starbucks drink for a fraction of the price! It’s so easy to make too. You measure everything right in the glass and use a handheld frother (I use the same one that I use for salad dressing) so there’s virtually no clean up. I hope you love this as much as I do!
Mint Greek Frappé
1 heaping spoonful instant coffee
1 spoonful granulated sugar
1 spoonful mint simple syrup (recipe follows)
- Fill a tall glass with a bit of water. We’re talking a tablespoon or two. Add a heaping spoonful of Greek instant coffee and a spoonful of sugar. Use a frother to froth up the drink. It should reach half the glass in a minute or less. (Moving the frother up and down expedites the process.) Add mint simple syrup to the glass and use frother to mix it in.
- Fill the glass with ice. Top off with a bit more water to reach nearly the top of the glass. If desired (I always desire!), top with a bit of milk, and garnish with a mint sprig. The drink separates to a coffee with foam after a few minutes. This is fine! Just continue to stir it as you drink.
Mint Simple Syrup
1 cup sugar
1 cup water
1/4 cup fresh mint leaves
- Bring sugar, water, and mint leaves to a boil in a small sauce pan until sugar is completely dissolved. Cool and strain to remove the mint leaves. This keeps for a couple of weeks in a jar in the fridge.
