Matcha nog!

following DoMatcha’s guidelines: “For a more contemporary Matcha-Nog recipe, heat up 6 oz. of readymade Organic Eggnog available at your local natural food retailer, add a dash of nutmeg, and top it off with 1 tsp. of matcha pre-whisked into a froth. A splash of rum is optional!”

I used 1/2 tsp matcha, a combination of milk, almond milk, and eggnog (because I wanted fewer calories/less dairy), and no rum as it was the middle of the day ;-) Not bad!

Preparation
160 °F / 71 °C 0 min, 45 sec

Also, I wasn’t sure what liquid I was supposed to pre-whisk the matcha into (more milk, I guess?). I just sifted it over the heated nog/milk/nutmeg blend, then mixed with the areolatte. Easy!

Hmm… that sounds kind of interesting!

It was… interesting. Warm eggnog is weird enough, and then adding in the matcha is also weird. Once I thought of it as a hot matcha latte with a shot of eggnog flavoring it seemed less weird. A fun experiment, but I doubt I’ll have it again.

Hot Toddy I think my Grandmother’s era would have called it, or maybe a hot buttered rum sort of drink would be interesting if you use rum.

@Bonnie I don’t think I’ve ever had a true hot buttered rum. Maybe I’ll try it this season. I have seen a couple “hot buttered chai” recipes going around lately…
