Baileys Original Irish Cream Eggnog Latte
If you celebrate the holiday season without having eggnog, did you even really celebrate? Eggnog is a quintessential part of the most wonderful time of the year. To bring this festive drink to the next level, we’ve created a latte version: Eggnog and whipped cream are infused with Baileys Original Irish Cream and poured over hot espresso. You’ll never want the plain store-bought version again.
2 ounces (60ml) Baileys Original Irish Cream
1½ cups (350ml) store-bought or homemade eggnog
¾ cup (177ml) milk
2 ounces (60ml) hot espresso
Bailey’s Whipped Cream
¾ cup (177ml) heavy whipping cream
1 tablespoon Baileys Original Irish Cream
2 teaspoons confectioners’ sugar
Freshly grated nutmeg (optional)
1. Make the latte: In a medium saucepan over medium heat, combine the Baileys Original Irish Cream, eggnog and milk and bring to a simmer.
2. Make the whipped cream: Using an electric mixer fitted with a whisk attachment, whip the cream on high speed until foamy. Slowly add the confectioners’ sugar and whisk to medium peaks. Whisk in the Baileys Original Irish Cream.
3. Pour 1 ounce of the hot espresso into each mug, then pour in the hot milk mixture.
4. Top each drink with a dollop of the whipped cream and a sprinkle of freshly grated nutmeg, if using.
