Oh, I'm so glad you posted this. I was just going to call you so the Virtues might enjoy this little warm treat this very wintry Christmas Eve. Merry Christmas, friends!

A follow-up. This was stinkin' amazing! We loved it. The only way to describe it is something between a hot vanilla milk from Starbucks & egg-nog. Delightful. You should all give it a try.
