Nescafe Gold ‘Tarik’ Ice

Nescafe Gold ‘Tarik’ Ice or Iced Nescafe Gold Shake. I have made my own version and boy, it tastes so damn good.

1) Add about 100ml of hot water into the cup.

2) Add two teaspoon of condensed milk.

3) Add one teaspoon of Nescafe Gold.

4) Stir it.

5) Use two cups, one cup filled with six ice cubes.

6) Pour the drink into one of these cups and do the ‘teh tarik’ way until you’re satisfied with the amount of bubble you can see.

7) Savor!
