Sweet 16th: Greek style coffee

Good morning friends and Happy Father's Day to all you gents out there!

Today's Sweet is a delicious shaken frothy iced coffee drink which personally, I make in a martini shaker.  Cause it's fun.  (You can shake this up in any kind of drink shaker but the martini shaker is what I have)  Also, what better way to start your day than with James Bond coffee: shaken not stirred.

This s a very simple recipe so lets get to it!

All you need is:
instant coffee (yes I know, but seriously, and nescafe works the best)
milk (optional)

The ratios for this are for a 16oz glass.

Start with 4 teaspoons of instant coffee and 4 teaspoons of sugar.  (You can use more or less sugar depending on how sweet you like your coffee.)

Put the coffee and sugar into a shaker with 3 Tablespoons of water.

Set it aside for just a moment and fill a large glass with ice.

Hang on,  let me fix something...

That's better!

Now shake that shaker! You want the contents to turn into a smooth froth.  Pour it over the ice.

Add a little cold water.

Then add a little milk if you like and give it a quick stir with a straw.
Then enjoy!
