Servings 2 Latte


  • 1 ½ cup eggnog
  • ½ cup milk 2%
  • 2 teaspoons brown sugar
  • 1/8 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 2 tablespoons brewed espresso
  • Optional toppings: whipped cream nutmeg, cinnamon


  • Add eggnog, milk, brown sugar, and nutmeg to a medium saucepan. Heat over medium-low heat, whisking frequently until mixture is hot and starts to steam, about 10 minutes. Pour into a milk frothing pitcher and blend with a milk frother until it’s foamy.
  • While the eggnog mixture is heating up, brew espresso in either an espresso machine or a stovetop espresso maker.
  • Add two tablespoons of espresso to a latte mug. Pour frothed eggnog mixture on top (make sure to save room for whipped cream, if using). Top with whipped cream and nutmeg.


I used a Stovetop Espresso Maker to make this recipe. I brewed a full pot of espresso (5oz) and used two tablespoons from it to make this recipe. Leftover espresso can be used to make multiple servings or to enjoy on its own.
This recipe makes 1 or 2 servings depending on how large the mugs are.
For best results and optimal freshness, enjoy it right away while it’s hot.
