Egg Nog Latte with Rum

In Beverages, Recipes on December 24, 2009 at 9:55 pm

It’s Christmas Eve.  I love egg nog lattes, but diligently resist them until now.  Too much egg nog isn’t good for a body.  I use a local roaster’s espresso roasted coffee.  You can order it online here .   For my egg nog, I also choose a local dairy.  It’s not much more expensive than the national dairy brands, if you remember to return the glass bottle to the retailer to get your deposit back.   Egg nog lattes are no different than regular lattes.  Steam your egg nog first, then brew your espresso.  I like a mild coffee flavor so I only brew 2 ounces of espresso for 8 ounces of egg nog.     Pour your steamed nog into your cup, holding back the foam with a large spoon.  Next, add your espresso.  For the adults, now is when you add 1/2 to 1 ounce of a dark rum.  Finally, top the latte with the egg nog foam.  May you all have a joyous holiday season.

Perfect Noggie Cap to a latte.

Please remember…never, never cut your egg nog with milk or water;  use it straight up.
