How to Make an Eggnog Latte

My favorite part of this recipe besides drinking it in peace and quite is that you don’t need any special equipment to make it.

  1. Combine all of the ingredients in a saucepan on the stovetop.
  2. Bring to a simmer while stirring.
  3. Use an immersion blender to whip or transfer to a blender.
  4. Serve with whipped cream!

What do you Mean by Strong Coffee

Lattes are famous for their kick of caffiene. Because we are adding in other liquids, you are going to need to make the coffee part strong. It will bring the caffeine kick and that great coffee taste.

You can do this by just adjusting the amount of water to coffee ratio you use. Additionally, lots of coffee machines now have an espresso setting. That’s a great place to start with this recipe.

What is Rum Extract

Rum extract is an ingredient used in baking, much in the same way vanilla extract is used. It is made from concentrated rum.

It is used in this recipe because we can get that taste of drinking eggnog and rum together without adding alcohol to our morning coffee. I love a good work around.

What is Agave Nectar

Agave Nectar is a natural sweetener. It has a little less sugar content than actual sugar. It is comparable to honey, and if you can’t find agave nectar, honey is a great replacement.
