I just tried this and it is great! I usually like my egg nog cold, but I couldn’t wait for it to cool down.

I used 4oz. half and half and 4oz. whole milk, with a sprinkle of cinnamon. Perfect for a cold day!

Tastes good, but I will have to try using half and half, or at least whole milk next time. I might want a 2nd egg, since I’m used to my eggnog being THICK. :D
