Tres Leches is normally a sponge cake, specialty in parts of Latin America and originally from Nicaragua. However, here there is nothing to eat, for my Café Tres Leches is a coffee drink. A ristretto rounded up with milk, sweetened condensed milk and coconut milk. If you wish a wonderful and tasty alternative to a cappuccino, try this. If you prefer it without sugar, replace the condensed milk as you wish.
- one ristretto (a short espresso)
- 10 ml milk
- 10 ml sweetened condensed milk
- 10 ml coconut milk
Firstly, warm the condensed milk and the coconut milk up and heat up the milk while beating it to obtain some froth. With hot water heat an espresso cup. Prepare an espresso but let only half the water amount through. It is however a matter of taste, so you may reduce the water to only 1/3. Pour the ristretto into the cup, then the coconut milk with the condensed one. Finally pour the milk with froth on top.
The taste of coffee, coconut and sugar is well-balanced.
