Dalgona Coffee

A newish coffee drink making the news these days is a frothy whipped coffee called dalgona coffee. This coffee drink seems to have viral in Korea during the Covid-19 quarantines.

You roughly need about 2 Tbs instant coffee, 2 Tbs sugar, and 2 Tbs hot water. You mix them together in a bowl and whip with a whisk (or beat with beaters) until thick and creamy. It is helpful if you have an electric whisk because it can take a while to get the right thick whipped consistency. The reason to use instant coffee is because it dissolves.

To make the drink, pour milk into a glass over ice cubes about 3/4 of the way and then top with the frothed coffee.

Add a teaspoon to your cookie dough batter, or other batter, like brownies, or even buttercream icing.
Add to your meat rub.
Sprinkle on vanilla ice cream.
Add to smoothies or milkshakes.

Looks like we’ll need to rethink our aversion to instant coffee.
