Specialty coffee drinks for the holidays

Thanks to Krups for sending me these delicious looking recipes for coffee drinks. I usually make my own eggnog latte around Christmas time; I'm glad I'm not the only one who likes this!

Krups suggests using their combo coffee/espresso machine. I have used them at other people's homes; it does make good coffee.

Enjoy and happy holidays!!

Eggnog Coffee
2 ½ cups freshly brewed coffee
1 cup eggnog
¼ teaspoon nutmeg

Brew coffee in your favorite coffee maker. Warm eggnog in a pot over low heat and add the hot coffee and nutmeg. Serve immediately. Garnish with nutmeg.

Chocolate Mint Latte
2 fluid ounces espresso coffee
¼ teaspoon peppermint extract
1/2 cup milk, steamed
1/8 cup frothed milk
Whipped cream
Chocolate shavings

In a coffee mug, brew the espresso coffee.  Add the peppermint extract and then pour in steamed milk and frothed milk. Top with whipped cream and chocolate shavings.

Coffee Hazelnut Milkshakes
1 cup chilled coffee
4 scoops coffee ice cream
¼ cup crushed hazelnuts
Whipped cream
Crushed toffee or chocolate shavings

Blend coffee, ice cream and crushed hazelnuts in a blender until mixture becomes a smooth but thick consistency. Pour into a coffee mug and top with whipped cream and sprinkle toffee pieces (or chocolate shavings).
