This classic Tom & Jerry Cocktail recipe is a delicious alternative to boring Eggnog

With Christmas right around the corner, I’m sure you’ve seen your local grocery store stocked with Eggnog for weeks now. You either can’t wait to drink more of that thick, creamy concoction, or you’re starting to get tired of it. Well, you if fall into the latter category, keep reading because the Tom and Jerry cocktail might just be the perfect solution for you.

The Tom and Jerry cocktail puts a twist on classic eggnog by using rum and cognac instead of bourbon and by serving the cocktail hot. Additionally, while eggnog is very thick, the Tom and Jerry has a lighter, whipped texture.

Although the Tom and Jerry does require time to prepare, it is well worth the effort. Once you have it all concocted, if you are wanting to be completely authentic, you can serve it in Tom and Jerry mugs (gold trimmed mugs with Tom and Jerry on the front).

Now let’s show you how to make this Tom and Jerry recipe!

Items You’ll Need:

  • Mixing bowls

Preparation

Tom and Jerry Batter: Separate the eggs and then beat the whites until they stiffen and form peaks (a mixer may be used). In a separate bowl, mix together the yolks, sugar, and spices. Fold the egg whites into the yolks. The batter can be made the night before to let the spices meld.

Tom and Jerry Cocktail: To prepare the drink, place 1 tablespoon of batter in a mug. Add 1 ounce each of cognac and rum to the mug (stir to avoid curdling). Finally, add hot milk to fill the mug and stir until frothy. (Milk and water can also be mixed in a 50/50 ratio.) Top with nutmeg. Creates four servings.
