Dalgona coffee made with ristretto

Yesterday, 8-year-old spent lots of time holding a magnifying glass trying to burn a piece of paper.
Today, he develops a new system with Legos. It does the same thing except that the little guy doesn’t have to lift a finger.
I’m telling you. Being lazy really pays off!

If you haven’t noticed, Dalgona coffee is a thing these days. It’s a type of Korean whipped coffee milk and quite tasty indeed. The original recipe calls for instant coffee, but I’m never a fan of such thing. So, I opt for ristretto instead. You can play around with many different flavors (matcha, chocolate, etc.) as long as you remember the ratio of water and sugar.
