Extra Tips

We recommend using strong coffee in this recipe. You can make it with Vietnamese coffee or espresso for maximum strength. A dark roast or espresso roast is ideal for brewing strong coffee. You can make ginger syrup at home by simmering fresh smashed ginger root and sugar in water.

Although you can use ginger tea bags, they will water down your coffee. Also, ginger tea bags do not add rich ginger flavor like ginger syrup.

Adding milk to this recipe adds smoothness and richness to the drink. You can heat the milk with a milk frother to create a layer of foam. If you do not have a milk frother at hand, heat the milk on your stovetop and whisk it vigorously until it foams.

Although ginger coffee may sound like an unusual drink, it is worth giving it a try. After all, you may fall in love with it during the cold season.
