In a large, 12 ounce size, coffee mug add the milk, Skrewball whiskey and vanilla vodka. Set aside.
In a medium bowl, using a handheld mixer on medium speed for 30 seconds, whip the hot water, instant coffee granules and the granulated sugar then increase the speed to high for an additional 4 ½ -5 minutes or until fluffy and stiff peaks form.
Gently spoon your whipped coffee mixture onto the top of your milk.
Storage:This drink is best served immediately as the whipped topping will slowly deflate as it sits.Tips:
If you don’t have a handheld mixer, you can whip the ingredients using an immersion blender or even a milk frother for individual servings. You can also use a whisk to whip it by hand but it will take you a little bit longer.
I used whole milk for this recipe but feel free to use whatever dairy, or non-dairy, of your choosing. I think that the full fat versions work best no matter what “milk” option you choose.
Granulated sugar and regular instant coffee (with the larger granules) are what I used for this recipe to get the best results. However, you can substitute instant espresso or raw cane sugar. Note that if you use the instant espresso that your whipped coffee will be much stronger than a traditional regular instant coffee and the raw can sugar does not whip up quite as full as the granulated sugar does. Any of these substitutions still makes a great Drunken Dalgona though.
You can sip this Drunken Dalgona coffee cocktail as it is or stir it up and enjoy.
This drink is made as a cold cocktail but feel free to heat up your milk, follow the rest of the directions, and enjoy it as a hot coffee cocktail.
Make sure that you are preparing your Drunken Dalgona coffee in a large enough mug, or cocktail glass, because the whipped topping does get pretty fluffy and you want to make sure you have enough space in your mug for all the caffeine clouds.
I find that for single serving drinks like this, the small 50 ml. shooters that you can find at your local liquor store are perfect (a touch over the 1½ ounces in each) to use when you want to try new brands and flavors of liquors without committing to the larger bottles.
Skrewball Peanut Butter Whiskey is the brand that I used here but if you can not find that brand in your area you can use any brand flavored peanut butter whiskey. Alternatively, you can use a good unflavored whiskey (I like to use Jameson Irish whiskey for my coffee cocktails) in lieu of the Skrewball brand and a peanut butter flavored schnapps in lieu of the vanilla vodka.
