Sweet, creamy, but somehow still really strong- I'd never been able to replicate the flavor no matter how many recipes I found and tried online. So in Thailand, I watched like a hawk while the baristas made it at the little stands. And it is oh so simple. I tried it out as soon as we got home, and its the real deal.
8 oz hot espresso (if you have an espresso maker) OR very strong black coffee
2 tsp sweetened condensed milk
2 tbs evaporated milk
Lots and lots of ice
Brew the espresso, and pour it into a large mug. Whisk in the condensed milk, and then stir in the evaporated milk. Both of these are in cans in the baking aisle at the grocery store.
Fill a glass to the brim with ice, and pour the warm espresso mixture over it. And there you have it. A perfect little sip of Thailand.
