Oh, you're still putting your whipped coffee on top of milk? I'll assume that means you haven't heard about dalgona martinis yet. Essentially a boozier, more sophisticated take on TikTok's favourite beverage as of late, this cocktail trend involves dolloping frothy coffee onto a creamy, chilled liqueur rather than plain old milk. Some recipes call for a base of RumChata or Kahlúa, but Delish suggests using Baileys Irish Cream and vodka, and we're inclined to trust that suggestion.
Want to make a dalgona martini for your next at-home happy hour? Here are the easy steps you'll need to follow:
- Pour 50 millilitres of Baileys and 50 millilitres of vodka into a cocktail shaker or glass filled with ice. Shake and strain the mixture into a martini glass.
- In a medium-sized bowl, vigorously whisk together 2 tablespoons of sugar, 2 tablespoons of instant coffee, and 2 tablespoons of cold water until it thickens and reaches whipped cream-like consistency. This can be done with either a whisk, milk frother, or handheld blender.
- Scoop the whipped coffee on top of the chilled martini, stir, and enjoy.
So, uh, are you drooling yet? If not, take a look ahead at the various dalgona martini iterations taking over social media, and that'll most certainly change.
