  • 2 tablespoons instant coffee
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 tablespoons hot water
  • 400ml cold milk
  • Ice (optional)


  1. Add the coffee powder, sugar and water to a bowl. Whisk them together with an electric beater or hand whisk. You will see that the colour of the mixture keeps changing. Whisk until it forms a paste or cream like consistency in a caramel or light brown colour.
  2. Fill a glass with ice and milk. (You could also sweeten the milk if desired.) Now, take the coffee mixture and layer it over the milk. You can smoothen it out with a spoon.
  3. You can serve it just as is or garnish with chocolate curls, sprinkles or whipped cream.
