Best Point

If you make an eggnog latte so it cost you less because once you grab all ingredients, you can even make two drinks at home at the same cost you have to pay for 1 in Starbucks.

Starbucks Eggnog Latte

Arrival: The Eggnog Latte is not introduced by Starbucks, instead another coffee chain introduce it in October 1986 but later on that coffee store become part of Starbucks, and then this Eggnog latte is officially owned by Starbucks.

Informative Point: There was a huge stress period among people, because recently in 2021, Starbucks stopped offering Eggnog Latte, the reason being the short of supply.

Appearance: If it is served in a clear glass then a light chocolaty brown color is visualized from the outside with a white top, and nutmeg or cinnamon sprinkles over the top make the drink appearance fancier.

Taste: The fact is, its taste is not liked by all, but for me its matchable, ike just imagine a drink with sweet and spicy at a time with nutty, vanilla touch along with the saltness of caramel, and creaminess of milk, ….indeed a full flavor package.

Texture: Its texture is finely smooth, velvety, creamy, soft, and thick.

Version: It can be enjoyed as hot, blended, or iced, just go for the one you prefer the most.


The blended Eggnog latte is no less than a frozen hearty treat for breakfast.

Availability: As it is a seasonal (holiday) drink, which means you have to confirm first that either it is available in the store or not, otherwise simply make it at home, so that you can enjoy it whenever you want to.

Shelf Life: You can also store it for up to 3 days, just refrigerate it and stir it well before use.

Eggnog is Acholic or Non-alcoholic?

If we talk about the traditional version then it is alcoholic which is very famous in Canada, Us, and North America, but it can also be made as non-alcoholic.

Piece of Advice: I think you should always prefer the non-alcoholic one because it is a healthier option, and also safe for the kids.
