Eggnog Latte – A Beautiful Mess


An eggnog latte is my favorite way to enjoy eggnog! I just think the rich, creamy, sweet and spicy taste of the eggnog pairs well with fresh espresso. Whoever called my eggnog latte has my deepest gratitude. It’s one of my favorite espresso drinks ever.

This is also a very easy drink to make at home. With minimal ingredients for a complex flavour, an eggnog latte is the perfect seasonal treat when you need a little caffeine fix.

ingredients

  • espresso
  • Eggnog – Homemade or store-bought
  • Simple syrup – homemade or store-bought

directione

Follow the manufacturer’s instructions to extract a rich, concentrated shot of espresso.

The secret to a delicious latte is the perfectly frothed milk, or in this case, eggnog. If you have an espresso machine with a steam wand, place the wand just below the surface of the milk and turn it on.

Tilt the jug slightly to create a swirling motion. Continue steaming until the eggnog has doubled in size and has a smooth, velvety texture.

If you don’t have a steam wand, you can heat the milk on the stove and whisk it by hand or with a whisk Milk foam Vigorously until foamy.

Pour the espresso into the cup with the simple syrup, then pour the hot, frothy eggnog over it. A pinch of nutmeg, optional.

Best home espresso machines

We’ve tried many espresso makers over the years, and here are our favorites at different price points and skill levels:

  • Automatic espresso machine for cafe – My current device. It uses any whole beans, so if you use high quality beans, you will get a high quality espresso. It automatically makes espresso shots (no barista skills required) and includes a milk frother wand to heat and froth the milk. We have used this machine almost every day since I got it for Christmas last year, love it! Comes in three colors.
  • Stovetop espresso – This is the cheapest way to make espresso at home. It is labor intensive and you will also need a way to grind your beans to get the best results. But this is a classic method that works great when done well.
  • Breville Barista Touch -We bought this for a good friend as a wedding gift once and they said they loved it. It’s a sophisticated machine that will need some barista skills to operate, but it’s an excellent home espresso machine.
  • Nespresso Vertuo – For those who want an espresso maker that uses pods, this is my favorite. Depending on the capsule you use, it can make espresso or coffee.

Notes

Simple syrup is optional in this recipe. Although I think most egg lattes are sweetened, this is a rich and creamy drink, and if you want to leave it unsweetened, that’s okay too. Many eggnog recipes already contain some sugar anyway.
