Recipe for frappe (Greek iced coffee). You’re welcome.

Look kids, these are tough times. If you are in the same boat we’re in, even a stop at Starbucks is an unaffordable luxury anymore. So I dug up my recipe for frappe (pronounced frah-pay, roll the R to sound particularly snooty) so as not to miss out on the sweet, caffeinated goodness that will get us through these times that try men’s souls.

These taste just like the ones I first drank in Greece. Follow this recipe and you’ll get great results.

1 1/2 tsp Nescafe instant coffee (any instant works but Nescafe is best IMO)

1 1/2 cups cold water


milk or half & half


shaker (I use a glass jar with a lid)

In your shaker, mix 2 Tbsp water, 2 – 3 ice cubes (crushed works great), coffee and sugar to taste.

Here’s some sweet Greek lingo for ya:

sketo – not sweet/no sugar

metrio – medium sweet/2 tsps sugar

gliko – sweet/3 tsps+ sugar

Shake contents for about 30 seconds. The result should be simply foam

Pour into tall glass half way filled with ice. Add remaining water and milk or half & half to taste.
