Festive Holiday Eggnog Latte
What is an Eggnog Latte?
Our Eggnog Latte recipe is a festive holiday beverage that combines the creamy, spiced flavors of traditional eggnog with the robust notes of espresso or strong coffee. A holiday favorite, this drink brings together the joy of the season with the warmth of a classic latte.
- 2 shots of espresso or 1/2 cup strong brewed coffee
- 3/4 cup eggnog (store-bought or homemade)
- 1/4 cup of your preferred milk (to dilute the eggnog if it's very thick)
- 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg (plus extra for garnish)
- 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract (optional)
- Whipped cream (optional, for garnish)
- Begin by pouring the brewed espresso or coffee into the Elixir Mixer.
- Add the eggnog, milk (if using), nutmeg, cinnamon, and vanilla extract.
- Heat the mixture until it's warm but not boiling. This can be done on the stove or in a microwave. Once warmed, pour it back into the Elixir Mixer.
- Using the Elixir Mixer, whisk the mixture on your preferred speed until it's well-combined and slightly frothy.
- Pour the latte into a mug. If desired, top with whipped cream and a sprinkle of nutmeg for garnish.
- Relish the rich and creamy flavors of your Eggnog Latte!
What is eggnog made of?
Traditional eggnog is a creamy beverage made from milk, cream, sugar, whipped eggs, and spices, often enjoyed spiked with rum, brandy, or bourbon.
Can I use non-dairy eggnog?
Absolutely! There are many plant-based eggnog alternatives available in stores, made from ingredients like almonds, coconut, or oats.
Is the Eggnog Latte very sweet?
Eggnog itself is sweetened, but you can adjust the sweetness by choosing a less sweet eggnog or diluting it further with milk.
Can I make this caffeine-free?
Yes! You can use decaffeinated coffee or simply enjoy it as a warm spiced eggnog without the coffee.
