Eggnog Latte

The other morning I went to make a latte for myself and as I reached for the milk, cream or whatever I could find in the fridge, I came up empty handed. All I spotted was a bottle of eggnog, the good kind with alcohol. It was a Saturday, and usually I’ll have a mimosa on the weekend with brunch anyway, so I rationalized the “it’s not even 12 o’clock” rule. I made my latte with just espresso and eggnog. It was good, but a little strong. The next day I just halved the eggnog with some milk, and it was shear perfection.

This recipe is very close to the Starbucks recipe. I wouldn’t call it a straight up copycat recipe, because I think it’s better. But that’s my opinion. Keep in mind, the quality of the eggnog is really going to effect the final outcome of this recipe. A homemade rich eggnog would make it absolutely perfect. I used Evan Williams, a pre-made alcoholic good quality eggnog in mine. Try it and let me know what you think.

Eggnog Latte


2 shots espresso, or strong coffee
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup eggnog (I used Evan Williams, an eggnog with alcohol, however you can use whichever alcoholic or non-alcoholic brand you prefer)
whipped cream, for garnish
freshly grated nutmeg, for garnish


1. Brew coffee. Add milk and eggnog to a cup to steam on espresso machine, or to a saucepan to heat on the stove-top, or heat in a coffee mug in the microwave.

2. Add espresso and milk and eggnog to a coffee mug and top with whipped cream if desired an garnish with freshly grated nutmeg.
