A few years ago, while summering in the Greek islands, I regularly enjoyed iced Nescafe Frappe coffees while listening to the flugelhorn players serenade us in the cafes. It was a magical time, and upon returning stateside I’ve longed for those delicious coffee concoctions.
Fast forward to 2014, and while my Grecian tan has since faded, my yearning for Frappe has only grown deeper.
Fast forward to this morning, I was sitting in the office daydreaming about chalupa variations, and one of my coworkers came in talking about an incredible boozy Whynatte frappe recipe that she’d picked up while working the streets. Needless to say, I was all ears. She mixed us up a round of Whynatte boozy frappes, and with that first sip, I was immediately transported back to my childhood years squid hunting off the coast of Santorini, drinking frappes in the hot sun. No kidding, it was one of the best drinks that I’ve ever tried. Flat out incredible.
And now, I share this wonderful recipe with you:
Shake Nescafe, water, and 2-3 ice cubes vigorously for 30-60 seconds in a stainless steel shaker until it turns into a thick creamy foam.
Pour foam into a glass over ice. Add vodka and top off with Whynatte. Stir everything lightly with a straw and voila!
Also, try it out with different liquors such as Van Gogh Double Espresso vodka, whipped vodka, or even vanilla vodka.
