For most a big cup of coffee for breakfast is what it is all about. That cup of coffee is essential. Is routine. But not for me. Unlike many I am not a big coffee drinker. Sometimes I wish I was so that I can go meet friends for an afternoon coffee. But that just doesn’t happen.
Eric loved this. But I knew he would because he loves eggnog and of course coffee. He said the flavors were perfect and that it tastes like Christmas in a cup! Lol! Oh and another plus is that this made my house smell so good!
Prep Time: 5 minutes Cook Time: 5 minutes Servings: 1
2 shots espresso or 1/2 cup of strong concentrated coffee
1/3 cup eggnog
1/3 cup milk
2 teaspoons sugar or sweetener, to taste
dash of nutmeg
dash of cinnamon
optional whipped topping
Brew coffee or espresso.
Heat eggnog and combine with milk. Use frothing wand slowly up and down, side to side until eggnog and milk is thick and foamed. (Or put in blender if you don’t have a frothing wand).
Pour coffee or espresso into mug, sweeten to taste and pour hot eggnog mixture over the top. Sprinkle with nutmeg and cinnamon. Enjoy!
