  • Author: Molly

  • Yield: 4 servings 1x


This Bourbon Eggnog Affogato is the easiest holiday-themed dessert you can make! Four ingredients, zero cook time, and a delicious and decadent dessert in minutes! All it takes is a splash of bourbon, some eggnog, ice cream, and hot espresso or coffee. Boom! Dessert is done. And it’s delish.


  • 1 pint eggnog or vanilla bean ice cream
  • 4 oz bourbon (or spiced rum)
  • 4 oz eggnog
  • 8 oz freshly brewed and hot espresso (or strong coffee) – it must be hot!
  • Whipped cream
  • Fresh nutmeg, for grating


  1. Place 2-3 small scoops of the ice cream in 4 small coffee mugs, wine glasses, or bowls – the way you serve this is versatile! Just make sure you use something that can go from cold to hot quickly without breaking.
  2. To each mug/bowl of ice cream, pour over roughly 1 oz each of bourbon and eggnog.
  3. Top each glass off with 2 oz hot espresso or coffee. The hot coffee will immediately melt the ice cream. Stir gently to combine.
  4. Top with whipped cream and a grating of fresh nutmeg. Serve immediately.
