That's a Latte Holiday Drink Recipes

I recently attended a Got Milk? / Toma Leche Holiday Latte blogger event with award-winning barista Heather Perry who was concocting some yummy winter flavored latte's. Below are her recipes for some perfect drinks to warm you up this season.

Eggnog Latte (the one I'm sipping in the photo)
Hot Latte Recipe

Ingredients:
6 oz. milk
6 oz. eggnog (store bought works fine)
2 oz. espresso or strong brewed coffee

Directions:
Warm milk and eggnog together by either steaming or warming on stove. Put espresso at bottom of cup and top with eggnog mixture. Enjoy!

Pumpkin Spice Latte
Hot Latte Recipe

Ingredients:
2 oz. espresso or strong brewed coffee
2 tbsp. pumpkin pie mix out of the can
8 oz. milk

Directions:
Combine espresso and pumpkin pie and mix well. The nice thing about the pumpkin pie mix is it already has all the spices needed. If you only have canned pumpkin use 2 tbsp. canned pumpkin and ½ tsp. cinnamon and ½ tsp. nutmeg. Top with warmed milk and enjoy this traditional holiday treat.


Tres Leches Latte
Hot Latte Recipe

Ingredients:
8 oz. milk 2 tbsp. sweetened condensed milk 2 oz. fresh espresso or strong brewed coffee 4 oz. heavy whipping cream 2 tbsp. powdered sugar To finish: whipped cream and maraschino cherry

Directions:
Combine whipping cream and powdered sugar and whip until they forms stiff peaks.
In a mug, combine freshly brewed espresso and sweetened condensed milk and mix well.
Steam milk and pour on espresso. Top with a scoop of fresh whipped cream and a maraschino cherry.

Holiday Frozen Hot Chocolate
Cold Latte Recipe

Ingredients:
8 oz. milk
2 tbsp. powdered non-dairy creamer
3 tbsp. powdered chocolate
(If you don’t have powdered chocolate, you can make your own by combining 2 parts sugar to one part cocoa powder)
16 oz. ice
To finish: whipped cream and sprinkles

Directions:
Combine all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth and creamy. Pour into a tall glass and top with whipped cream and sprinkles.

  1. So, which one was your favorite? I think the eggnog one sounds like my sort of dish, personally. Nothing like winter to make those sorts of creamy, warm drinks sound like a good idea.

  3. I don't know what it is, but I don't love eggnog. We had it at our Christmas party, I tried it but still don't love it. Basically, it's not my drink of choice.

  4. Nathan, yes the eggnog was my favorite

    Allison, I always had it growing up so that might help. EggNog in a carton made by Hood is quite delicious. It's the kind I buy. Have you tried the eggnog latte at Starbucks?
