Hot milk... there's got to be a better name for this. Blech. This is so not just hot milk. It's wrap-yourself-up-in-a-blanket-on-the-couch-and-stare-at-the-christmas-tree [milk]. It's not cocoa; it's not cider. But they got together and had a love child, this would be it. If anyone has a more succinct way of expressing that, I'm all ears. Leave it in the comments. For now though, I'm keeping it short and sweet. I've got to go cozy up and enjoy my Christmas-in-a-mug [milk].
