If you’re into cocktails, you have to follow @ed_tales on Instagram. His account is full of beautiful cocktail photography and amazing recipes. This coffee-themed recipe features both coffee liqueur and dalgona foam and is a real treat.

The cocktail is a mix between an espresso martini and an old fashioned and is the perfect choice for when you’re feeling indecisive. It uses potato vodka, which adds a lovely creamy mouthfeel and coffee liqueur, which adds a lovely coffee sweetness. The drink is topped with Dalgona foam and a coffee bean garnish, which adds a decadent finish to an already luxurious drink.

How do you make Dalgona coffee foam?

Dalgona coffee foam is incredibly easy to make. It is equal parts instant coffee, sugar and water. Whisk or blend the ingredients together until the mixture is a nice foam texture.
