Eggnog Latte

1/3 cup espresso or very strong coffee
1/4 cup milk
1/4 cup eggnog
1 tablespoon whipped cream
ground nutmeg, if desired

Prepare espresso or very strong coffee. (I use 1 packet of Starbucks VIA Instant Italian Roast Coffee mixed in 1/3 cup of hot water.)

Heat together the milk and eggnog for about a minute in the microwave. The mixture should be hot (140 to 150 degrees F) but not boiling. Then froth using a milk frother until the mixture is double in size.

Pour the espresso or coffee into a coffee cup.
Top with the milk and eggnog. Stir.

Top with whipped cream and then grated nutmeg, if desired.

Note: eggnog can be frozen for up to three months. For ease of use in making lattes, freeze the eggnog in ice cubes trays. Two ice cube trays hold about 1/4 cup.
