This hot or iced eggnog latte recipe is so quick and easy to make. You will need an espresso maker and milk frother for this one. I prefer the Altissio capsules by Nespresso for this latte but any dark roast coffee and espresso maker will do the job!
For me, there is no more nostalgic flavor than spiced eggnog. One of my favorite holiday treats is a hot eggnog latte early in the morning by the fireplace. I also love a mid-day iced eggnog latte for a quick pick-me-up though. The best part about this drink is that it only requires 3 ingredients, hot or iced. This latte is so quick and easy to make. I start drinking this holiday coffee from the day that I find that first carton of eggnog on the grocery store shelves, until the day that my last carton of the season runs out. This is one of my favorite holiday coffees!
Hot or Iced Eggnog Latte Recipe Ingredients
Eggnog- The star of the show
Whole Milk- You could save some calories using lower fat milks but I love the creaminess of whole milk and eggnog together
Espresso- Decaf or caffeinated
How to make a hot eggnog latte
You may be wondering,
Can you froth eggnog?
Yes! This is my favorite way to make my eggnog lattes. You want to make sure to immediately wash your frother with hot water once you are done since the sugar from the eggnog can crystalize on your frother once it heats up.
Heres how I do it:
Froth the eggnog and whole milk together and pour into a mug.
Brew one shot of espresso over your frothed milk/eggnog mixture.
Top with cinnamon and enjoy!
Iced Eggnog Latte Recipe
Fill a tall glass with ice and brew one shot of espresso.
Pour 1/4 cup of egg nog and 1/4 of whole milk over the espresso and stir well.
Add your favorite toppings and enjoy!
It’s that easy! Enjoy this eggnog latte hot or iced in under 5 minutes. I hope you love it as much as I do. If you are looking for an evening drink for the Holidays, make sure to check out my Holiday Margarita Recipe too!
