Unable to find an acceptable way to combine them, the Noggy & Nice is our homage to an eggnog latte. Since our eggnog is made in-house from scratch, we found it better to highlight it separately. Served with an expertly pulled shot of our Wonderland Park espresso, we encourage sipping from each in succession for a festive experience!
Also, we would be remiss if we did not implore you to enjoy this delicacy warmed, with a bit of rum or brandy and a touch of fresh-grated nutmeg. Holiday cheer, indeed!
- 4 eggs, separated
- 1 cup half & half
- 2 cups whole milk
- 1/3 cup +1 tsp sugar
- 1 tsp Blackstrap bitters
- Freshly grated nutmeg
With a hand mixer or a stand mixer fitted with a whisk attachment, whip egg whites with 1 tsp sugar until stiff peaks form. Set aside.
In a separate bowl, mix egg yolks and 1/3 cup sugar until well integrated (the yolks will lighten in color and the mixture will fall off the beater in ribbons).
Add milk, half & half, and bitters to the yolks & sugar mixture. Stir to incorporate. Add egg white mixture and gently stir until combined.
Store your eggnog in a 1-quart glass jar with a screw-top lid. This recipe yields just enough to fill one jar. Refrigerate and consume within 42-72 hours. Always serve with freshly grated nutmeg on top.

Our Noggy & Nice is quite simple. Pour 4 ounces of your fresh eggnog into a small glass and grate some nutmeg over the top. Use a home espresso machine to pull a shot and serve it alongside the eggnog.
