And here at A Couple of Sips, our stand is simple. If it ain’t got booze, we ain’t drinking it – joking!

We also love mocktails and other non-alcoholic drinks. In fact, we served up a few delicious, virgin variations of this coffee drink here at the site.

We particularly like these recipes for vanilla, caramel, and chocolate dalgona coffee!

What is Dalgona?

Dalgona is a coffee drink from India, phenti hui coffee, but that became famous through a South Korean show.

In that show, a South Korean actor said the coffee reminded him of dalgona, a Korean honeycomb toffee.

Back to the drink, dalgona is made by whipping equal parts of instant coffee, white or brown sugar, and hot water until it becomes creamy and fluffy in texture.

This creamy coffee mixture is then added onto cold or hot milk.

How to Make a Punchy Dalgona Coffee

In a medium-large bowl, add instant coffee, brown sugar, and hot water and whip it with a hand mixer until fluffy – for us, it took about 4 minutes on high speed.

If you don’t have a hand mixer, you might want to check out this one from KitchenAid – it’s a great, reputable American mixer for good value for money!

Anyway, in case you don’t have a mixer, you might have to whisk by hand for about 20 minutes.

Moving on, in a cocktail shaker, add the vodka, cream liqueur, heavy cream, and ice cubes. Shake vigorously for about 10 seconds.

Pour into a coupe glass and gently add the whipped coffee topping using a spoon.

When you’re ready to drink, stir to combine.
