Here's The Recipe For That Frothy Dalgona Coffee That Is Trending Everywhere
Social media trends come and go and it's sometimes tough to get involved because you might not have the time to replicate what you see online.
However, with loads of people now locked in their homes, there's never been a better time to learn something new.
One of the things that has been blowing up on TikTok and Instagram is the dalgona coffee.
It's very photogenic and, from the sounds of the ingredients, pretty sweet.
But you don't need to be an expert barista to (literally) whip up this caffeinated drink in your kitchen.
You need three things to bring this alive: instant coffee, sugar and water.
Korean YouTuber 자도르J'adore posted a very popular video on the best way to make a dalgona coffee and it seems pretty simple.
You'll need one to five teaspoons of instant coffee powder, depending on how many people you're serving. The brand isn't specific, however it's best to avoid one with sugar or creamer and coffee that is coarse.

Then you'll need to match it with one to five teaspoons of sugar.
The YouTuber says if there isn't the right amount of sugar then it won't foam right so it's better to have more than less.
Then you need to add one to five teaspoons of water, or just enough liquid that melts the sugar and coffee. If you add in any more then it will take ages to foam.
Once your three ingredients are in there, it's just a process of whisking the contents for around eight to 10 minutes until it is frothy AF.
Now, pour milk into your glass until it's about two thirds full and then dollop your dolgona coffee mix on top and wham bam thank you ma'am.
There are other TikTok videos going around saying for one person you only need one teaspoon of each so don't go overboard and then have tons of frothy coffee sitting there with no one to drink it.
If you want to make it alcoholic, add a shot of kahlua.
The drink has origins in Rajasthan, India but was made very popular in South Korea when actor Jung Il-woo presented it on TV after being served it in Macau.
Since loads of countries announced isolation rules for the coronavirus, people have been using the hashtag #dalgonacoffeechallenge to show off their creations.
