Recipe instructions for a Tom and Jerry:
To make a Tom and Jerry, a holiday and winter-time favorite, start with the egg by separating the egg yolk from the white and beat thoroughly independently. Fold the beaten egg yolk and white together, then add the sugar and 1 tbsp of rum.
Put 1 tbsp of the mixture in a heat-proof mug or toddy glass, the add the rest of the rum and stir in hot milk to almost fill the glass, and add the cognac. Garnish with ground nutmeg. Enjoy your Tom and Jerry!
- This classic hot drink was invented by "Professor" Jerry Thomas in 1852 at the Planter's House Bar, St Louis, Missouri. Legend has it, he refused to serve it before snowfall.
