Better Than Starbucks Eggnog Latte

As stated before, I’m a Starbucks addict. Last year’s Starbuck’s Eggnog Latte left a lot to be desired. Actually, I found it appalling. Sorry, Starbucks! I decided to try it at home.  What I didn’t realize is how incredibly easy it is to make.

So few ingredients. All there is to it is eggnog, milk, espresso and whipped cream if desired. Which, of course, I ALWAYS desire! Oh yeah, and a little sprinkle of freshly grated nutmeg on top. Let me stress to you to choose your favorite eggnog brand. Don’t go cheap or unfamiliar. Go with a thick, rich and creamy eggnog. Make your own even! I haven’t braved an eggnog recipe yet, maybe someday.

I must admit I wish I hadn’t discovered how easy it is to make at home. Extremely hazardous to my waistline!  I will not tell you how many I have already consumed so far this year. What the heck it’s the holiday season, right? Still not tellin’!

So turn on some Christmas music, make yourself an eggnog latte and get to wrapping those gifts!

Author:
Serves: 1 serving
Ingredients
  • ½ cup eggnog (your favorite brand)
  • ¼-1/2 cup milk (whatever type you have on hand)
  • 1-2 shots of espresso (I highly recommend 2)
  • whipped cream
  • freshly grated nutmeg
Instructions
  1. Mix the eggnog and milk together, steam to 145 degrees. Careful here because eggnog will scald faster than milk.
  2. Pull 1 to 2 shots of espresso in your favorite mug, pour the steamed eggnog/milk mixture to fill the remaining room in the mug.
  3. Top with whipped cream and sprinkle with freshly grated nutmeg, if desired. ( I also highly recommend)
Notes
You can use strong brewed coffee instead of espresso. And heat the eggnog/milk mixture on the stove top, slowly.

    I love eggnog, especially as a holiday toddy with a bit of dark rum. But I’ve never had it in a latte, this would keep me going all day long! We finally got our first snow, and it’s COLD! I need one of these to warm me up from the inside out! (Or two!) Running out to pick up eggnog today! Thanks for sharing the recipe, I’m going to spoil myself!
