  • 2 Tbsp granulated sugar
  • 2 Tbsp instant coffee granules
  • 2 Tbsp hot water
  • 1 c. Milk any type will work
  • Ice for serving


  • In a medium bowl or stand mixer bowl, combine sugar and instant coffee. Add the hot water to mixture. Immediately whisk on medium-high speed until it is light and airy. It should double in volume and be a shiny and smooth mixture with a mousse-like structure. This will take about 2-4 minutes. You can also use a whisk if you don't have a mixer but it will take at least 10 minutes and up to 20 minutes to get the same result.
  • Fill a glass with ice and pour milk over ice. Using a rubber spatula or cookie scoop top the milk with the whipped coffee mixture. Serve immediately with a straw.


The easiest way to make this drink is with either a stand mixer or hand mixer. You can use a whisk to whip it by hand, but it will take 10 to 20 minutes. With a mixer, it takes less than five minutes.
You can enjoy the drink as its served, or you can stir the creamy whipped topping into the milk. Stirring it definitely dilutes the strong flavor.
You can save the extra whipped coffee. It will keep in the refrigerator for a day or so.
