  • 1 rounded teaspoon instant coffee
  • 2 teaspoons sugar
  • 1/2 cup or more cold water, divided
  • 1/4 cup evaporated milk or regular milk

Step 1Place the coffee, sugar and one-fourth cup water in a shaker, jar or blender. Cover and shake well for 30 seconds, or blend for 10 seconds in the blender, to produce a thick foam.

Step 2Slowly pour the coffee mixture down the sides into a tall (14-ounce) glass half-filled with ice. Add the milk, pouring down the side of the glass (so as not to dispel the foam), and top off with about one-fourth to one-third cup cold water to fill the glass.
