Why Holiday Blend?
Holiday blend coffees vary by roaster. However, the word blend is the answer, as it provides different notes that complement winter spices. So, you’ll get a smooth combination instead of trying to play matchy-matchy your grounds and enhancements.

No Eggnog? No Worries!
If you don’t have a carton of your favorite eggnog, no worries. We’ve got some substitutions that still create the perfect drink!
Milk or Dairy Alternatives: You can replace the eggnog with regular milk (whole, skim, 2%, or your choice) or dairy-free alternatives like almond milk, soy milk, oat milk, or coconut milk. Use the same amount as the eggnog in the recipe.
Heavy Cream: For a richer and creamier option, you can use heavy cream or half-and-half as a substitute for eggnog. Be mindful that this will make your drink even more indulgent.
Greek Yogurt: If you prefer a thicker and tangier option, you can use Greek yogurt mixed with a bit of milk or water to achieve the desired consistency. This will add a subtle yogurt flavor to your iced coffee.
Flavored Creamer: Flavored coffee creamers like vanilla, caramel, or hazelnut can add a unique twist to your Eggnog Flavored Iced Coffee. Use these creamers as a substitute for eggnog and adjust the sweetness accordingly.
Eggnog Syrup: If you want to retain the eggnog flavor without the dairy, you can use eggnog-flavored syrup or a non-dairy eggnog alternative like almond or coconut eggnog.
Homemade Eggnog: You can make your own homemade eggnog using eggs, milk, sugar, and spices, or even a non-dairy version using coconut milk or almond milk. Then, use your homemade eggnog in the recipe.
Remember to adjust the sweetness and consistency of the substitute ingredients to match your taste preferences. Enjoy experimenting and customizing your Eggnog Flavored Iced Coffee with these alternatives!
