Zizi says: You can also use a canning jar with a lid to make the milk mixture frothy. Simply heat the milk mixture in the jar in the microwave just until hot–not boiling. Put the lid on and shake until the milk is frothy. You may need to hold the jar with a towel while shaking. Pour the hot beverage in a cup and sprinkle with cinnamon This easy homemade beverage is tasty and especially good as your morning joe or on cool nights by the fire.
