If you’re planning to serve Creamy Coffee Eggnog Recipe at a holiday party, you’ll be pleased to know that it can be made ahead of time. After preparing the eggnog-coffee mixture, cover it tightly and refrigerate it until you’re ready to use it. It should keep for up to 3 days in the fridge.

When it’s time to add the whipped topping and spices, be sure to thaw the whipped topping ahead of time. You don’t want lumps of frozen topping in your eggnog! Once it’s thawed, set it aside while you mix the rum and spices into the creamy eggnog.

For an extra festive touch, try garnishing each glass with a sprinkle of cinnamon or a dusting of fresh nutmeg before serving. Your guests will appreciate the attention to detail!

If you have any leftover eggnog, store it in an airtight container in the fridge. Reheating is not recommended, as it may cause the eggs in the mixture to curdle. Instead, enjoy your leftover eggnog chilled or over ice.

Creamy Coffee Eggnog Recipe is delicious served cold, but if you prefer it warm or hot, simply heat it gently over low-medium heat, stirring constantly to prevent scorching or curdling. Be careful not to boil the mixture or heat it too quickly, as this can cause it to separate.

Whether you prepare it ahead of time or enjoy it immediately after making, Creamy Coffee Eggnog Recipe is sure to please even the most discerning palate!

Tips for Perfect Results

When making Creamy Coffee Eggnog Recipe, a few simple tips can help you achieve the best results. One of the most important tips is to use high-quality ingredients, especially when it comes to the coffee and the eggnog.

Freshly brewed coffee made from Folgers Classic Roast or any other high-quality coffee can make a big difference in the flavor of your creamy coffee eggnog. Similarly, using a well-made prepared eggnog can impact the texture and taste of your drink.

Another tip is not to overheat the eggnog. The heat from the brewed coffee can make eggnog curdle, so it’s important to warm up the eggnog gently over medium heat and remove it from heat as soon as steam begins to rise from the surface.

You can also use cinnamon, nutmeg, or pie spice to enhance the flavors and aromas in your creamy coffee eggnog. These spices pair well with both coffee and eggnog and will add that holiday touch you’re looking for.

For an even creamier and richer texture, you can add heavy cream to your recipe. It will complement the flavors of both the coffee and the eggnog.

Finally, for an extra festive touch top serving with whipped cream, ground cinnamon, or nutmeg. It will look beautiful and brings out all of those winter flavors you’re craving!

By following these tips, you’ll be able to create a perfect cup of creamy coffee eggnog that is both delicious and satisfying.


As a barista, I’ve heard plenty of questions related to brewing the perfect cup of coffee and making the best coffee-based drinks. And with this creamy coffee eggnog recipe, it’s no surprise that you may have some questions too. To help you out, I’ve compiled a list of the most frequently asked questions along with their answers to make sure you can make this delicious drink without any hiccups.

Is eggnog mixed with coffee good?

Pairing eggnog with coffee might seem unconventional, but trust me, it’s a delightful combination. It’s a unique and enjoyable way to indulge in your favorite seasonal flavor. If seasonal coffee drinks are your jam, then you’ll be pleased to know that I’ve got some delicious options for you, such as my Gingerbread Latte, Iced Chai Latte or Pumpkin Spice Latte.

What can I add to eggnog to make it better?

As a barista, I have a range of ingredients at my disposal to add unique flavors to coffee. These include spices such as nutmeg, cloves, cinnamon, pumpkin pie spice, and apple pie spice. Additionally, extracts like pure vanilla and almond can give coffee a distinct taste. And of course, the most important ingredient – the coffee itself. In the following sections, I will provide instructions and tips on making different types of coffee using these ingredients.

What’s in an eggnog latte?

For this beverage, you’ll need to create a 35ml pour of espresso. Next, grab 100ml of milk and steam and whisk it until it’s frothy. Once the milk is ready, add 150ml of either eggnog or advocaat. Finally, add a pinch of nutmeg and a pinch of ground cinnamon for extra flavor.

Can you substitute heavy cream for eggnog?

When it comes to eggnog, it may not have enough creaminess to maintain its structure alone. Depending on the thickness of your eggnog, you may need around 1/2 cup of eggnog per cup of heavy cream.

Bottom Line

Creamy coffee eggnog is the perfect seasonal drink to enjoy with your loved ones. You can make it for yourself as an indulgent treat, or you can serve it to friends and family at gatherings.
