MANILA -- If you're on social media, you've probably seen a frothy beverage called Dalgona coffee at one point on your feed.

Named after a South Korean candy, Dalgona coffee consists of a sweet caffeinated froth on top of iced milk. It has since become viral on TikTok, Instagram, and other social media platforms because of its sweet and milky flavor.

If you're looking for something new to try at home, you're in luck as Dalgona coffee only needs five simple ingredients -- instant coffee, white sugar, hot water, milk, and ice. 

To make the froth, all you need to do is mix two tablespoons each of instant coffee, white sugar, and hot water -- whether via whisk or using a mixer -- until thick and creamy. Get a glass, add milk and ice, and put the caffeinated dollop on top.

After doing Dalgona coffee, you can also try the other variations of this drink using chocolate drink mix or matcha powder.
