Starbucks Eggnog Latte


    • 4 ounces boiling water

    • 1/2 cup eggnog
    • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
    • 1/2 tablespoon light brown sugar

    2. In a glass measuring cup combine milk, eggnog, vanilla, brown sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg; whisk/stir until thoroughly combined.

    4. Remove from Microwave and stir/whisk again.
    5. Place in Microwave for an additional 30 seconds, or until the milk begins to froth up again.
