I used flaxmilk for this cup and I’m uncertain if that was the right choice. It didn’t froth up which was a bit of a disappointment. I used two spoonfuls because one wasn’t a rich enough flavor. I guess this tastes a little custardy, but I don’t quite get eggnog. I don’t taste any nutmeg and creamy nutmeg is prime eggnog flavor to me. I don’t dislike this, but it’s not what I expected from the name. I pickup a light warm cinnamon. If the cinnamon was stronger it could pass as an horchata matcha which would be fun. I suppose I could add either spice to future cups for the desired effect.
As it is, this cup is now gone and there is a syrup tasting experiment going on in my kitchen that I need to attend. One of the tiny roommates bought an overpriced bottle of Aunt Jemima high fructose corn syrup and in an effort to educate about the difference between that bottle of cancer and pure maple syrup (by now you can see my elite maple syrup snobbery shining through clearly) we are holding a taste test before the poor auntie gets tipped down the drain and real maple syrup once again reigns supreme in this house. So say we all!
