It’s finally getting warm in Montreal, Canada! Woohoo! As the summer months inch towards us, I’m getting ready by sipping on this yummy frappé coffee recipe.
Having so many friends of Greek decent, I feel like it’s been eons since I was first introduced to frappés. Frappés are a simple yet delicious drink, made up of mainly ice, milk, and coffee. I love it in the summertime for its convenience (preparation is a snap) and because it seems to cool me down almost immediately.
When it comes to making frappés, it’s best to use some sort of mixer to achieve that lavish froth. I often go for an immersion blender. You can also use a simple handheld frother, which is easier to use and clean.
Choice of Coffee for Simple Frappé Drinks
Frappés are most commonly made with instant coffee. For my recipe, in particular, I love using the Nescafé brand. Of course, you can use any of your preferred brands.
Using instant coffee makes this drink super convenient to make. We often keep instant coffee in our pantry all-year round, just in case we run out of our gourmet blends before grocery day. Of course, we also keep a jar of the instant stuff to make frappés every summer!
How do you Pronounce It?
So, how do you pronounce the word “frappé?” It’s easy! It’s pronounced: “fra-ppeh” – and make sure you roll your “r” as you say it.
