If you love coffee, but want to try something new, this dalgona coffee cocktail is a super fun coffee-flavored cocktail. It takes just three ingredients to make the dalgona whipped topping, and three more ingredients to make the cocktail:

  • Instant coffee grounds
  • Sugar
  • Water
  • Cream
  • Vodka
  • Kahlua

As long as we’re trying dalgona variations, you should also try this Dalgona Strawberry Matcha Latte that uses matcha powder to make the whipped topping.

How to Make Whipped Coffee Topping

There are a couple of ways you can prepare this whipped topping.

  • By hand whisking – takes about a 6-minute forearm workout to get this done. It’s such a small amount that you might opt for this method.
  • Handheld blender – I don’t have the whisk attachment for my handheld blender [there’s a link for this], but I was able to put the ingredients in the chopper attachment and blend it up that way. It didn’t get as fluffy in the attachment, but a few minutes of hand whisking after got it there.
  • By hand mixer – this is probably the easiest method. It takes about 3-5 minutes to whip it up.
