Recipe for Dalgona Coffee
I’m all about recreating coffee house specials at home, so here’s one you’re going to put on repeat. Bonus in that you can buy the main ingredients for less than your VSCO girl latte. Most commonly known as “whipped coffee,” (and let’s be honest, easiest to remember) its origins are actually South Korea and India and if you want to be posh, it’s called “Dalgona Coffee.” It’s incredibly easy to make with only three ingredients — buuuutttt if you’re fancy like me and want to add booze, it’s easily adapted. Either way, it is the PERFECT afternoon pick-me-up.
- 2 Tablespoons instant coffee
- 2 Tablespoons sugar
- 2 Tablespoons hot water
- 8oz - 12 oz of milk
Blend the ingredients in small bowl with hand mixer.
Pour milk into a glass and add ice.
Spoon the whipped coffee onto the top and stir.
Try different types of milk. I use oat milk and it’s delicious!
Add 1+ pump caramel syrup
Add a shot (or more ?) of RumChata to your milk. You could use other booze too. If you don’t have RumChata on hand, I’d recommend Jackson Morgan’s Brown Sugar & Cinnamon, Kahlua, or Baileys.
