eggnoglatte1 {Holiday Cheer} Eggnog Latte Recipe

I have a confession -I’ve been drinking Eggnog lattes from home for a few weeks now. But being that today is Black Friday, the Christmas Holiday season has officially begun! Now I can share my favorite drink with you without shame. I love eggnog lattes but they can be quite expensive at Starbucks and elsewhere. Instead I prefer to make mine at home for a fraction of the cost. Although technically you need shots of espresso for the drink to be considered a “latte”, you can still make a faux latte by using super concentrated coffee (or instant coffee packs like Starbucks VIA).

Enjoy this classic holiday drink at home and keep all those extra dollars you’ll be saving for celebrating Christmas. Enjoy!

Holiday Eggnog Latte
Ingredients
  • 2 shots espresso OR ½ cup of double/triple concentrated coffee
  • ⅔ cup eggnog
  • ⅓ cup milk
  • sugar
  • optional whipped cream and nutmeg
  • Variation: If you want to make this as an evening cocktail, add a shot of rum.
Instructions
  1. Pour espresso/concentrated coffee into a mug and add steamed eggnog/milk mixture.
  2. If you prefer your eggnog latte sweeter, add a little sugar.
  3. Top off with whipped cream and a pinch of nutmeg.
  4. *If you don't have an espresso machine, do what I do most often. Just warm your eggnog/milk mixture in the microwave. Cook times may vary but I prefer heating mine for 2 minutes.

    I’m so excited the holiday season has officially started and what a great way to kick it off. I need to try making my own at home. I save the Starbuck’s ones for special occasions though. It could be dangerous to have such easy access. :)

    Love the Christmas theme on your site… looks beautiful! I always get excited about “red cup” time at Starbucks, as I call it. I’m more partial to the peppermint mocha than the eggnog latte, but I’m willing to give it a try!

    Hi Alice, thanks so much for your recipe – you solved a huge dilemma this past Christmas when we were desperately in need of a ENL fix and no where near a Starbucks. Love your blog, I’ll definitely be back!
