Starbucks Eggnog Latte

Starbucks Eggnog Latte is one of the ways I have marked the start of the holiday season. This creamy and sweet coffee concoction is my favorite item on their seasonal menu.  This fall I have been on the quest to recreate these delicious coffee drinks at home, and this is my second coffee drink.

When making coffee drinks at home such as this one, you may not have an expensive espresso maker, there are a couple of ways we can make really strong coffee at home. You can simply use 1 1/2 to 2 times the coffee you would normally use when making coffee. If you have a home grinder, grind the coffee very fine. Espresso is typically ground very fine to let the coffee flavor to really come through. I use a moka pot which can be purchased for about 20 dollars.

If you want a sugar free version you can use sugar free eggnog to make this drink.

Starbucks Eggnog Latte

You can make your own Starbucks eggnog latte, its so easy to do.


  • 2 servings espresso
  • 1/2 cup of milk
  • 1/2 cup of eggnog
  • freshly ground nutmeg if desired


Prepare espresso or make one very strong coffee. Heat together 1/2 cup of milk and 1/2 cup of eggnog for about 1 minute in the microwave. Froth milk by using a milk frother, if you don't have one you can pour milk into a blender for about 30 seconds. If you don't have a blender, you can put your milk in a jar, or even a cocktail shaker and shake for about 1 minute. The milk will froth up and almost double in size.

Pour 1 serving of coffee into a coffee cup, and top with 1/2 of the milk and eggnog. Top with whipped cream and grated eggnog if desired.

    This looks absolutely great. I tried it and although it wasn’t quite as pretty as the image here, it tasted wonderful. I will perfect this in time I’m sure. Thanks for sharing the recipe.

    Uh…YUM! I was really reluctant to try the eggnog latte. I had one 6 or 7 years ago at another company’s espresso drive through window. I was about 3 miles down the road, late for a meeting when i took my first sip. It was curdled and sour and grossed me out. I dumped it in the parking lot and have not tried one until my friend convinced me to try Starbuck’s this year. Oh, my….I am so hooked and now can make my own!

      Maybe they didn’t cut the eggnog with half and half. I would like to think no one would serve spoiled milk. Although many years ago when I worked at Dairy Queen the soft serve mix could spoil. You would never know it because it was in these large bags. So there was more than once I served up a spoiled ice cream cone. Crazy.

      Often really bad experiences turn us off of certain foods. I won’t hardly eat meatloaf! I completely understand.
