Recently, we wrote about the history and advantages of Frappe, a popular Greek coffee . It is easy to prepare and ideal for hot weather. To prepare it in home conditions, a shaker is enough for a simple jar.
As for the type of coffee, you will easily find a special Nescafé frappé in Greek supermarkets. Being on vacation, you can throw it into a suitcase. If you do not have it, just choose one that has the form of a very fine powder, because it dissolves well in cold water. In our opinion, this coffee is even better than Nescafé frappé .
The following recipe is served on our favorite type of frappe, i.e. sweet with milk. If someone prefers the option without sugar or milk simply skip the ingredient during preparation.
1. Pour coffee, sugar and about 50 ml of water into a shaker / jar and shake vigorously to create a stiff foam.
2. Put ice cubes into a tall glass and then pour over the foam you have just made.
3. Fill the empty shaker / jar with a small amount of cold water. Several times we shake it so as to rinse away the remains of coffee and foam. We pour the contents of the shaker / jar into a glass with foam.
4. The whole is topped up with cold milk, mixed and our frappe is ready to serve.
Crayfish is widely available in Crete and even in the smallest supermarket you can easily find this alcohol on the shelves. Typically, these are local "brands" that were distilled on site. Cretans are happy to treat tourists and guests with this drink. In traditional taverns, glasses of raki often appear after a meal.
Restsina is one of the most characteristic drinks served in Greece. Opinions about its expressive taste are usually very divided and most often form part of the scheme that either hates or loves it. It is worth knowing that for some time, due to some producers, this image has undergone some changes. Conscientiously prepared retsina based on carefully grown grapes can be a wine that is not only delicious for most people but also a perfect complement to Greek dishes.
Cretan cleanse is a plant that has recently gained considerable publicity and popularity. It is worth mentioning that drinking the infusion from the dried leaves of this plant does not allow you to enjoy the fullness of its healing power. The vast majority of substances that are characterized by strong antiseptic and anticancer effects are not soluble in water. A much better way is to make a tincture based on about 60% alcohol. The recipe for its preparation can be found below.
