Christmas Cocoa Cappuccino
It's the Eggnog Latte meets the Mocha Cappuccino. Many holiday flavors in one warm, beautiful coffee drink: eggnog, cocoa and, if desired, a sprinkling of crushed peppermint candy cane or freshly grated nutmeg to top it off. It's also easy to make and easy on the eyes if layered in a glass mug, which is fun for your guests.
- 1/2 cup prepared espresso (we recommend our Espresso Blend)
- 3 Tablespoons chocolate syrup
- 1/3 cup milk
- 1/4 cup eggnog
- grated nutmeg or crushed candy cane - for optional garnish
- Stir the chocolate syrup into the espresso.
- Combine the milk and eggnog and froth using steam frother or by placing it in a sealed Mason jar and shaking until doubled in volume (then microwave with the lid removed for 30 seconds so it's warm).
- For a simple presentation: Pour the chocolate-infused espresso into a mug and then top with the frothed milk.
- To get a layered effect in a glass mug: Pour frothed milk (plus the milk that didn't froth) into the glass mug until the mug is 2/3 full.
- Slowly pour the chocolate-infused espresso into the the center of the froth. To assure a slow steady stream, try pouring the coffee over the back of a spoon resting just above the froth. Like magic, the coffee will layer itself between the milk that didn't froth and the froth.
- Use a knife or toothpick to swirl the froth and the top of the drink will look magical too.
- If desired, garnish the top with freshly grated nutmeg or crushed candy cane.
