Dalgona White Russian

May 9 2020

If you've been following Instagram food feeds, you've probably noticed a lot of photos of Dalgona coffee, and wondered (like I did) what it was.  After doing a tiny bit of research, I discovered that it's a simple process of whipping instant coffee, sugar and hot water to create a frothy topping for cold or hot drinks.  It’s called Dalgona because the fluffy creamy coffee looks like Dalgona candy, a candy from South Korea that’s just like honeycomb toffee or sponge toffee. 

I then found this delicious recipe for topping a traditional White Russian with this frothy whipped coffee, and was in heaven!

Not only is it gorgeous, but it's easy to make and is so delicious, you couldn't possibly stop at just one.  Drink responsibly, my friends...

Dalgona White Russian

Makes:  1 cocktail

Total Time: 5 minutes

1 tbsp hot water 1 tbsp instant coffee powder 1 tbsp honey or granulated sugar (see note) 2 ounces (1/4 cup) vodka 1 - 1 1/2 ounces (2-3 tablespoons) Kahlua 1-2 ounces (2-4 tablespoons) whole milk or nut milk 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract Combine the hot water, instant coffee, and honey in a bowl. Using an electric mixer, whip until fluffy and light, 2-3 minutes. Alternately, you can do this with a hand frother too. Fill a glass with ice. Add the vodka, Kahlua, and a splash of vanilla. Stir. Pour the milk over and stir to combine. Spoon the whipped coffee overtop. Gently stir and enjoy! Chef's Note: I love the flavor of honey and it works well, but sugar does whip up prettier and smoother.
