If you’ve got instant coffee, sugar, and water on hand, you can make this. It’ll go by faster if you have a hand mixer, but a humble regular whisk, one powerful arm, and a good dose of patience and endurance will get you there too—just make sure you’re ready to feel the burn in your triceps and biceps and you’ll be rewarded with a nice tall glass of cold, creamy coffee that’s sweetened just right. Depending on how much of a caffeine rush you want, this recipe makes enough dalgona fluff for one or two servings. It’s delicious but very strong: drink at your own discretion!
- In a medium bowl, combine sugar, coffee, and water.
- Using a hand mixer or a whisk, vigorously whisk until mixture turns silky smooth and shiny, then continue whisking until it thickens and holds its lofty, foamy shape. (If whisking by hand, it will take 8 to 12 minutes to get to optimal fluffiness.)
- Fill a glass most of the way full with ice and milk, then dollop and swirl the whipped coffee mixture on top, mixing before drinking, if desired.
