  • 2 tsp instant coffee (Nescafe)
  • 2-4 tsp white sugar
  • water
  • ice cubes
  • Milk, heavy cream, or evaporated milk (optional)

Pour 2 tsp instant coffee granules, 2 tsp (or more) sugar, and 2 tbsp water into a small mason jar with a thigh-fitting lid or cocktail shaker. Close the lid tightly and shake vigorously for 1-2 minutes until very foamy.
Fill a tall glass halfway with ice cubes. Pour the froth into the glass and slowly top off with cold water. Leave room for heavy cream or milk, if using.
  • Make it with milk instead of water (except for the little bit in the beginning) and you'll have a frapógalo - frappe float.
  • Don't skimp on the shaking step. The stronger you shake, the more delicious the foam.
  • Take it to the next level and add a shot of Baylies, Kahlúa, or a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
All that's Jas
