recipe: eggnog (faux) latte

it's getting chilly here in chicago, and while it's not quite time for christmas decor, i thought i'd sneak a little cheer in with an eggnog latte. minus the steamed milk and espresso, because who has that equipment laying around? this makes enough for one if you're greedy, two if you're just looking for a little taste of warm deliciousness.

1 cup eggnog
1/3 cup milk
1/2 cup double-concentrated coffee
nutmeg & cinnamon

combine eggnog and milk in a mason jar. close it up, and start shaking! shake for 60 seconds, then remove the lid. microwave 60 seconds. remove, close it up and repeat - but only heat 45 seconds this time, and watch that it doesn't bubble over! pour the coffee into a deep mug, then pour the eggnog mix in. sprinkle with nutmeg and cinnamon, and enjoy!
