National Frappe Day is October 7th. While most associate “Frappe” with Starbuck’s Frappuccino, it is actually just a chilled drink. It is similar to a milkshake, but it doesn’t usually contain ice cream. The drink was believed to be discovered in Greece when an inventor and salesperson, Dimitrios Vakondios, was doing a demonstration for Nestle and ran out of hot water. He substituted ice water for his coffee drink and discovered the frothy topping later called the Frappe. While a frappe traditionally consists of coffee, it can also be a cold fruit drink.
