October 7 is National Frappe Day!
No, National Frappe Day does not celebrate the blended and chilled coffee drink served at your local coffee chain. National Frappe Day celebrates the traditional Greek frappe coffee, a foam-covered, iced coffee drink made from instant coffee, sugar, water and milk. To create the thick, frothy layer of foam, the instant coffee and water are shaken, not stirred or blended.
