I’m a sucker for eggnog. I can remember being in elementary school and my mom would purchase eggnog once the holiday season arrived and she and I would share a glass in the kitchen. It not only tastes like the holidays to me, but it also tastes like childhood memories, and I always look forward to buying it once December rolls in.
SO, when Starbucks introduced its eggnog latte a few years ago, mom and I were obviously addicted. In New York at Christmas when mom had her first eggnog latte? She finished it off and went back for a second. #respect. SO, my Nespresso VertuoLine and some eggnog are just the tools I need to recreate this seasonal drink without spending my time in line (that is now only on the menu in Canada, but if you ask for it, they will usually make you one).
2 shots espresso
Combine the milk, eggnog and sugar. I used my Nespresso Aeroccino milk frother (which is so easy to use to take your warm coffee drinks to the next level!), but if you don’t have one, you can also shake it up (shake until the liquid has about doubled with air bubbles) and warm in the microwave for 30-45 seconds, repeat this step again.
Make your espresso. I used the Altissio espresso pod in my Nespresso VertuoLine for a double shot. So delicious. *Sidenote: I also like to make espresso and pour it over ice. I add one or two teaspoons of white chocolate syrup and sip on it as the ice melts. So good!* Once the espresso is in the mug, pour the milk/eggnog/sugar mixture into the mug, using a spoon to hold back the foam. After the liquid has mixed with the espresso, pour the foam on top and sprinkle on some nutmeg.
Right now, with any Nespresso purchase of $199 or more you’ll get $100 credit. For me, a great cup of coffee is the best way to start the day… and now that I’ve mastered the eggnog latte, I don’t know if I’ll be able to stop! It took the pressing of two buttons to make this drink, that’s how easy it was. It’s a huge reason why I think Nespresso is the perfect holiday gift – it’s gourmet coffee with the press of a button.
Thanks for reading! Tell me – who out there is as addicted to the eggnog latte as me? Or is there another holiday coffee drink you prefer? XO –
