This is one of our favorite holiday drinks. My husband starts every day by making a huge pot of coffee. He is a sleepy bear before his first cup of coffee which always makes me giggle.
Being a morning person I always start talking with him and he just looks at me and holds up his coffee cup to remind me he is not awake quite yet.
We started making fun coffee drinks at home when our love for Starbucks eggnog lattes and pumpkin spice lattes started making a big impact in our checkbook.
Now we have fun coming up with fun new coffee drinks we can enjoy at home in our pajamas and not having to leave the house.
This best Eggnog Coffee is the perfect way to start Christmas morning! Pour a big mug before diving into gifts and all the family fun.

I was amazed to see non-alcoholic eggnog in our local grocery store before Halloween.
Eggnog - Homemade eggnog or store-bought eggnog.
Coffee - Your favorite brewed coffee works great. We even use Starbucks Via instant coffee some mornings depending on how quickly we need a cup of coffee and don't want to wait for the coffee maker.
Optional - Whipped cream and nutmeg or ground cinnamon to garnish the top.
Frothed milk is a fun option to make this drink even more festive. The combination of milk and eggnog in coffee is great.
Add a dash of vanilla extract for a fun additional flavor.
Pour a bit of whiskey into the coffee-eggnog mixture to make this an alcoholic beverage.
Coffee maker - Make your favorite coffee in a Keurig, on the stovetop, with a coffee maker, an espresso machine, or with instant coffee.
Coffee mug - You can also serve this in a moose mug from National Lampoons family vacation. LOL!
Milk frother - optional if you want to froth a bit of milk into your coffee

How to make Eggnog Coffee
It is really easy to make eggnog and coffee. All you need to do is add eggnog to a saucepan and heat it over low to medium heat until it is heated. You do not want the eggnog to boil.
Add in coffee and stir together until both are heated to the desired temperature. Enjoy! Top with ground nutmeg if desired.
To make this with the microwave slowly heat the eggnog in the microwave until hot but not boiling. Add it to hot coffee.
Feel free to use decaf coffee if you don't want this caffeinated.
The amount of eggnog can be changed to reach a flavor you love.
You can add in rum, bourbon, brandy, Fireball, or other liqueur to make a eggnog coffee cocktail.
To make a lighter version you can use Cool Whip lite on top instead of homemade whipped cream.
Add in a scoop of ice cream for a fun twist.
