Eggnog Latte! Celebrate Christmas with this Eggnog latte made right at home. A super simple coffee drink that uses real eggnog instead of creamer.
We are knee deep in the holiday season now. Right? Thanksgiving is in the rearview mirror. Most likely you’ve been going over your Christmas shopping list. Maybe you’re already done?? Props to you.
What have I done? Well I made us this Eggnog Latte…
I figured the day after Thanksgiving is deserving of coffee. Am I right?
Although I’ve come a long way since my days of working retail. I remember telling myself “someday..someday I will get to sleep like a normal person and not have to work Black Friday at midnight.” Well. I don’t have to go to work. But seeing as how I have a 4 month old I wouldn’t exactly say I’m sleeping like a normal person.
One of my favorite things about the holidays is the holiday flavored coffees. I’m completely basic, I know this and I accept it. My husband loves me anyway.
This Eggnog Latte is quick and simple to toss together. It’s basically coffee, eggnog, a little brown sugar to sweeten and a bit of nutmeg. Plus some whipped cream if you’re feeling a little adventurous.
And yes. Of course you can enjoy Gingerbread men cookies with your coffee because..holidays.
I’ve been using this Milk Frother when making my lattes at home. I love it. It warms and froths the milk, or in this case eggnog, making for a coffeehouse experience at home. It’s not required for this recipe, just another fun kitchen appliance. You can just as easily heat the eggnog in the microwave, or on the stovetop and then add some whipped cream instead of having froth. Or use the method I talked about with my Snickerdoodle Latte and use a jar and give a few shakes.
