Ok. This may not be for everyone:
Make coffee like you always do.
Place a generous amount of hot cocoa mix in a much (homemade is best, store bought will do)
Add one small crumbled candy cane to the mug and the add the coffee. (Leave a bit of room at the top of the mug!)
Stir and contemplate the meaning of the holiday season until all is dissolved.
Add eggnog to top up the mug.
It is the richest of warm morning drinks in my home. Be careful how you use it!
