Making a great Cappuccino Freddo involves attention to detail and high-quality ingredients. This coffee is made only in Greece, just like espresso freddo. Double espresso mixed with ice.
Here’s a step-by-step guide to make an excellent Cappuccino Freddo:
2 shots of high-quality espresso, cooled
2 tablespoons of sugar (adjust to taste)
Cold milk (milk of your choice)
Cocoa powder or chocolate shavings for garnish (optional)
Espresso cups or glasses
Spoon for stirring
Prepare Espresso: Start by brewing 2 shots of espresso using an espresso machine.
Allow the espresso to cool to room temperature.
Sweeten the Coffee: In a mixing container, combine the cooled espresso with 2 tablespoons of sugar. You can adjust the amount of sugar to your preference, making it sweeter or less sweet as desired.
Stir and Dissolve: Stir the coffee and sugar mixture until the sugar is completely dissolved.
Add Ice: Fill your serving glass or glasses with ice cubes. The amount of ice can be adjusted to your preference to make the drink colder.
Pour the Sweetened Coffee: Carefully pour the sweetened espresso over the ice in the glasses. This will help chill the coffee further and dilute it slightly, which is typical for iced coffee.
Add Cold Milk: You will then add fresh iced milk to the shaker and shake it in the shaker until it forms its characteristic creamy appearance.
Pour cold milk over the coffee and ice. The amount of milk you add depends on how creamy you want your Cappuccino Freddo. You can pour it in slowly to control the level of creaminess.
Garnish (Optional): If you like, you can sprinkle cocoa powder or chocolate shavings on top of the Cappuccino Freddo for added flavor and decoration.
Serve and Enjoy: You can serve your Cappuccino Freddo as is, or you can add a straw for easier sipping. Enjoy your delicious homemade Cappuccino Freddo!
Feel free to adjust the sweetness, milk ratio, or other aspects to match your personal taste preferences. This refreshing coffee drink is perfect for hot days or when you’re in the mood for a cold, creamy coffee treat.
