Christmas Eggnog

Our family for many years has always celebrated on Christmas Eve. The beauty of a family together on Christmas Eve makes it all seem awesome. We enjoy a delicious dinner , open gifts and then dessert and after the kids are busy playing adults can sit and enjoy conversation. This Eggnog drink is perfect for that time.

1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
12 egg yolks
