*As we mentioned above, it’s best to use Greek Nescafé instant coffee. Both the amount of sugar and milk is optional, so make it according to how you like it. See the "How Sweet Do You Want Your Frappé" section above for sugar ratio. Lastly, you may need to make it once or twice to find your perfect mixing ratios, but once you do - you’ll want one every day.
