Ages ago, I remember going to Joe & Eddies to have a Tom & Jerry with Jeff and Larry, each year at Christmas time.
Until now, I had not known exactly what was in the drink concoction. Here's the drink recipe for you!
First you'll need to make the Tom & Jerry Batter.
12 eggs, separated
1 teaspoon cream of tartar
2 pounds of sugar
2 ounces dark rum
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Whip the egg whites with the cream of tartar until they form stiff peaks. In a separate bowl, beat the yolks with the dark rum, sugar and vanilla. Once the mixture is liquefied, fold into the egg whites.
Tom & Jerry Drink Recipe
1 tablespoon Tom & Jerry batter
1 ounce cognac
1 ounce dark rum
nutmeg for garnish
Rinse coffee mug with boiling water to clean and heat the mug. Add the batter, cognac and rum and fill with hot milk. Garnish with nutmeg.
1 brown sugar cube
1/2 teaspoon white granulated sugar
3 dashes Angostura Bitters
1 dash Regans' Orange Bitters No. 6
1/4 ounce cold water
2 ounces George Dickel No. 12 Tennessee Whisky or your favorite American whisky
Pour all ingredients into a mixing glass. Muddle until sugars are fine and stir. Fill with ice, stir, and strain into a rocks glass over fresh ice. Twist slices of orange and lemon over drink, then drop in the drink for garnish.
