Thought I’d hop on this dalgona trend and see how it works in a cocktail. It’s pretty intense in this one in terms of the coffee flavour, but I enjoyed it by drinking the cocktail underneath first and then moving onto the dalgona after.

Will be a great start of the night drink once we’re all out of isolation!

Here’s how to make a Dalgona Jalisco Espresso at home.


Dalgona coffee topping

  • 2 tbsp instant coffee
  • 2 tbsp white sugar
  • 2 tbsp hot water

Jalisco Espresso


To make the dalgona, whisk the three ingredients together or add them to a blender until it thickens up and peaks. For the cocktail, add all the ingredients to a shaker, add ice and shake. Strain into a coupe glass. Top with the dalgona and garnish with three coffee beans.
