Eggnog Latte

I'm usually a latte purist. I like my lattes with espresso and steamed milk. No sugar, no flavorings, nothing. If it ain't broke don't fix it-am I right? But Paul loves all the holiday flavored lattes there are to offer, and his favorite being the eggnog latte. Since I bought some eggnog for some baking ideas, he requested a homemade eggnog latte.

Who knew they were so easy? Basically instead of steaming milk, you steam a mixture of milk and eggnog for your latte. Top with the NECESSARY whipped cream, and sprinkled with freshly grated nutmeg.

I have to admit, it's pretty dang good. Just don't tell my latte I said that.
