The Coffee Float
CATEGORIES
INGREDIENTS
  • Servings: 1
  • One Tall glass
  • One Teaspoon of instant coffee (or 2 oz. regular coffee)
  • 3 oz of milk
  • 1 can of cola (pepsi/coke)
DIRECTIONS
  1. Take a nice tall glass, preferably chilled.
  2. Add about 2 thumbs widths of milk to the glass, probably about 3 oz, but I rarely measure.
  3. Add one teaspoon of instant coffee, level rounded or whatever your taste may be to the milk, do not stir.
  4. You can also substitute 2 oz of very strong coffee.
  5. Slowly pour Cola (Pepsi, Coke or whatever) over the whole mixture being mindful of the foam.
  6. After your glass is just about full take a spoon and gently stir the whole concoction.
  7. You should notice a "head" of dense foam beginning to appear at the top of the glass.
  8. This is good.
  9. After the foam has settled a little bit enjoy.
