Frappe is a type of ice coffee made by the Greeks. Its basic ingredients are instant coffee and water. Sugar and milk and ice cubes are optional. The invention occurred by accident in 1957 by Dimitri Vakondio in Thesaloniki.
It is made by placing the required analogies of coffee and sugar in a tall glass or a shaker. Then water of about 1cm is added and the mixture is shaken or mixed with an electrical mixer until foam is formed. Then water is added as well as the optional milk or ice. It is served with a straw. Frappe is a pleasant and cool coffee especially in the summer. However it is quite excitatory and laxative.
