Coffee OR Cocktail?  How about BOTH!

Have you ever pushed away from the table after a special meal and been offered an after dinner drink?  Sometimes your hostess asks if you would like a coffee when you are finished eating.  Occasionally, someone will offer you an after dinner cocktail.  You know what?  Maybe I want BOTH of those things!  This homemade eggnog latte cocktail recipe is an easy solution for people who want both coffee AND a cocktail!Homemade Eggnog Latte Cocktail Recipe with or without the whiskey

Making coffee cocktails with the Ninja Coffee Bar

When I was browsing through Pinterest looking at latte recipes, I realized that most of them called for instant espresso.  Most likely because it is difficult to keep the delicious coffee flavor of your beverage when you need to dilute it with dairy and alcohol like you do for this homemade eggnog latte recipe.  

I didn’t really want to use a powdered espresso but no worry, the new Ninja Coffee Bar ™ I received to try out provided the perfect solution.  What’s so great about this coffee system?  It allows you to make a super concentrated coffee that works perfectly for specialty drinks like eggnog lattes!

Ninja Coffee Bar Review

The Ninja Coffee Barfeatures revolutionary Thermal Flavor Extraction technology.  What does that mean?  Basically, it can create a variety of sizes and coffee styles, from hot to iced to specialty, while achieving the perfect brew richness level every time.  

That means no more weak lattes and iced coffees! It totally reinvents the traditional drip coffee maker by unlocking coffee grounds’ full flavor potential and providing smooth, rich and well-balanced coffee. You can choose a cup, a travel mug or a carafe, and you can choose from a variety of brew styles.

 No more wasting money on expensive coffee house drinks when you can make them yourself!

Additional features of the Ninja Coffee Barinclude:

  • Easy-Fill Brew Basket – Slide out to quickly and easily fill with your favorite coffee grounds or fully remove for effortless cleaning.
  • Removable Water Reservoir with Auto-Metering – No need to measure or constantly refill.
  • Drip Stop – Stops the flow of coffee from the brew basket, allowing you to pour a cup mid-brew.
  • Multi-Serve Cup Platform – Easily pulls down so you can brew directly into your favorite mug or cup.
  • Programmable Delay Brew – Pre-set to brew automatically up to 24 hours in advance in any size.
  • Intelligent Clean Cycle Indicator – Alerts you when your brewer senses that it needs to be cleaned.
  • Ninja Easy Frother™ – Transform milk into rich creamy foam for your favorite indulgent specialty beverage.

If you find yourself frustrated with coffee that is too weak to turn into delicious latte recipes or are struggling to create the perfect iced coffee, the Ninja Coffee Bar might be just what you need!  It certainly worked well for this homemade eggnog latte cocktail recipe!  If you prefer your eggnog lattee without the whiskey, you can just leave that out.
