• 2 oz. hot espresso • 2⁄3 cup eggnog • 1⁄3 cup milk • Optional whipped cream and nutmeg
Place the heating disk into the bottom of the frothing pitcher of any Capresso automatic milk frother and securely snap it in place. Add eggnog and milk. Replace lid. Push “hot” button.
Meanwhile, place warm mug under the coffee spout of any Capresso espresso machine and prepare a 2 oz. espresso.
Once the milk frother automatically shuts off, slowly pour hot eggnog mixture into espresso. If you prefer your eggnog latte sweeter, add a little sugar. Top off with whipped cream and a pinch of nutmeg.

Tis’ the season for eggnog! Melt away the chill of winter and celebrate National Eggnog Month with a frothy twist on the holiday classic. Creamy, hot and delicious, this Eggnog Steamer recipe is certain to put you in good spirits.
1 serving (8 ounces)
4 ounces of your favorite eggnog (we used a non-alcoholic version, but adults over the age of 21 can choose a more “festive” variety)
4 ounces skim milk
Freshly ground nutmeg
Place the frothing disk in your Froth Select and ensure it is securely snapped inside the bottom of the pitcher. Add skim milk and eggnog into the frothing pitcher. Place lid and press the “Hot” button. Once the cycle is complete, pour into a serving glass. Top with whipped cream, ground nutmeg, and enjoy!
Tip: A little nutmeg goes a long way, but just a pinch will add great flavor! Use freshly ground nutmeg when possible.
