Ingredients for Eggnog Latte

  • Eggnog: Store-bought or homemade eggnog
  • Heavy Cream: I used heavy cream, but you can also use half and half or whole milk.
  • Espresso: You can use espresso or strong coffee I used Instant Pot Coffee Concentrate.
  • Froth: I have an instant Pot Froth Maker I used, but you can also use Coolwhip.
  • Nutmeg: You can use fresh ground or dry. This is optional but gives a great flavor and makes a great garnish.
