dalgona coffee noun [C, U]
UK /dæl.ˌgəʊnə.ˈkɒf.i/ US /dæl.ˌgoʊnə.ˈkɑːf.i/
a drink made from instant coffee, sugar and hot water whipped together until thick and creamy and served over hot or cold milk
I fiddled with a number of approaches to dalgona coffee. I tried using fresh-brewed espresso, but it doesn’t froth sufficiently even when I added heavy cream and extra sugar to the mixture. (I later learned there’s something to the science of instant coffee that helps generate the necessary air bubbles.)

walktail noun [C]
UK /ˈwɒk.teɪl/ US /ˈwɑːk.teɪl/
a cocktail that you drink while you walk
For those on a budget, the walktail can just as easily be made at home. Kummer also added that it offers an additional outlet for of-age adults to socialize while maintaining a safe distance. “It’s another way of meeting your neighbors, keeping social distance, and having a drink,” he said.

I NEED YOUR HELP FOR IMPROVE MY ENGLISH…I HAVE PROBLEM THAT I AM FOREGET SPELLING AND SOMETHINGS THEN WHAT I HAVE TO DO?
That’s nothing to be much upset about. You can master spellings by learning to divide words into their syllables. Really an easy way.
Based on the study of Word-construction, we can guess out many words above… some were also from common knowledge, such as:
WALKTAIL – drinking a cocktail while walking;
BLUICING – you were making juice of fruits and you were blessing fruits into juice…
