What is a frappé?
Frappé, also known as iced coffee, is a drink covered in foam and mixed with milk, which is very popular in Greece. This drink is usually served in the summer, as it helps to cool down and cool off from the heat. There is no single recipe for a good frappé, so the best definition is that of a cold mixed drink, like a slushy drink. In fact, the word comes from French and means milkshake.
History and origin of frappé
Greek frappé was born in 1957, when an employee was trying to find the best way to make hot instant coffee, but when he couldn’t find water that was hot enough, he mixed it with ice. Today, there are many varieties of this drink, depending on who makes it and where in the world you want to drink it.
