This creamy & delicious eggnog latte is the perfect holiday cocktail to go with your chocolate chip cookies.
This post is sponsored by DoubleTree Hilton but as always, opinions are my own.
As the holiday season approaches, every year I’m always reminded of how much I love cookies. Suddenly they seem to appear everywhere… in colorful holiday tins, at the checkout aisle in the grocery store, and even at the office for no reason other than to spread some holiday cheer. One of my favorite types of cookies are chocolate chip cookies, and if there’s a glass of milk to accompany them; I find them to be irresistible!
In celebration of National Cookie Day and to kick off the holidays, I’ve teamed up with DoubleTree by Hilton—the hotel brand known for its warm Cookie welcome. As DoubleTree by Hilton set out to find what makes travelers feel welcomed and what cities are the most inviting, it found that among six popular travel destinations, travelers found Los Angeles restaurants and hotels most welcoming*! So, to show how inviting it’s hotels in Los Angeles truly are, on December 4, 2018 they are extending their welcome to guests and non-guests alike by inviting anyone to stop by to enjoy a complimentary signature, warm DoubleTree Cookie! And, actually, the brand will be giving away free Cookies at ALL of its U.S. locations that day…how cool is that? They believe in always greeting people with a warm welcome that will bring a smile to guests’ faces, and their Cookies will do just the trick for anyone on National Cookie Day! To sweeten the National Cookie Day holiday even more, DoubleTree by Hilton is also offering a pairings guide with cocktail and mocktail recipes that pair well with their delicious Cookies.
Inspired by their delicious Cookies and looking for a delicious pairing of my own, I thought that this rumchata eggnog latte recipe would go perfectly with the Cookies! A step up above from milk, eggnog is always a hit during the holiday season, and with the addition of rum liqueur becomes the perfect “adult milk and cookies.” To make this delicious cocktail, all you need is some eggnog, rum cream liqueur and espresso. Mix them all together and pour over some ice in a glass! That’s it! Super simple, and ready for you to dunk your chocolate chip cookies in.
Clearly, I love the DoubleTree by Hilton Cookies, and it’s one of the reasons I always look forward to staying at their hotels. Travelers are invited to experience a warm DoubleTree Cookie welcome any time of year by staying at one of the more than 540 DoubleTree by Hilton properties located in 43 countries.

*DoubleTree by Hilton commissioned a 10-minute, online survey among 2,200 U.S. adults ages 18+ who have traveled for personal/leisure purposes, including a nationally-representative sample of 1,000 who took two or more trips in the past 12 months, and a sample of 1,200 who traveled to Houston, Denver, New York City, Chicago, Atlanta, or Los Angeles in the last two years (200 respondents per city). The margin of error is +/- 3.1% for the national data and +/- 6.93% for the city data, with both samples at the 95% confidence level. The survey was fielded by Edelman Intelligence between April 3-17, 2018.
