Tips For Eggnog Coffee Punch


  • Coffee choice: Use freshly brewed coffee for the best flavor. Cold brew or a strong espresso can add extra depth.
  • Spices: Go beyond rum for extra wintery vibes. Try adding a splash of Baileys, bourbon, or almond liqueur. Experiment with spices like cardamom, cloves, or ginger for a personalized touch.
  • Sweetness: Adjust the sweetness based on your preference. Some eggnogs are already quite sweet, so consider skipping the added sugar or using brown sugar for a richer flavor.


  • Creaminess: For a lighter punch, use low-fat eggnog or substitute some coffee ice cream. For a rich, decadent experience, blend in frozen vanilla bean ice cream or whipped cream.
  • Ice: Freeze small coffee ice cubes or berries for a festive touch that won’t dilute the punch as quickly.
  • Presentation: Garnish with flair – Top each glass with whipped cream, a sprinkle of nutmeg, cinnamon sticks, chocolate shavings, or even mini gingerbread cookies.
  • Ice ring wow: Freeze coffee and water in a bundt pan for a stunning ice ring that slowly melts and infuses the punch with extra coffee flavor.
  • Make two batches – one spiked for adults and one non-alcoholic for guests of all ages.

Enjoy your delicious and festive eggnog coffee punch!
