Holiday Classic Tom and Jerry Cocktail

Warm up with this Eggnog Alternative

The Tom and Jerry cocktail puts a twist on classic eggnog by using rum and cognac and serving the cocktail warm.

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!

Tom and Jerry Cocktail

Yields: 4 Servings

Ingredients You’ll Need:

  • 8 ounces Tom & Jerry Batter
  • 4 Ounces Cognac
  • 4 Ounces Aged Rum
  • 8 Ounces Hot Whole Milk
  • Cinnamon for Garnish
Glassware and Items You’ll Need:

  • Irish Coffee Mugs or Tom and Jerry Mugs (if you have them)
  • Spoon

 

Tom and Jerry Batter

Ingredients You’ll Need:

    • 3 Eggs
    • 1 Cup Powdered Sugar
    • 1/8 teaspoon ground allspice
    • 1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon
    • 1/8 teaspoon ground clove
    • Nutmeg to garnish
Items You’ll Need:

  • Mixing bowls
  • Wisk
  • Spoon

 

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.

Super Tasty Irish Coffee to get you through Winter

Warm Cocktails for the Winter Win

It’s cold outside. Let’s get cozy and we’ll show you how to whip up this super tasty Irish Coffee!

Super Tasty Irish Coffee to get you through Winter

As soon as Christmas lights go up, we whip out the hot cocktails. From toddies to coffee cocktails, winter opens up a new world of warm and sometimes chocolatey cocktails, and this Irish Coffee recipe is one of my absolute favorites.

The Irish coffees I’ve had in the past have always been made with either dark or medium roast coffee. Sometimes, I think the dark roast is better offset by sweet whipped cream than the medium roast. So for this recipe, I’ll give you the option to try it with either dark or medium roast. I typically like my coffee high test, but I experimented using a dark chocolate infused coffee and it was phenomenal.

Floating heavy cream on Irish coffee can take some practice to make it “picture perfect.” So don’t fret if it doesn’t look like the pictures do. If the heavy cream is whipped properly it will float. It took me a few tries to get it right and for it to not just fall in like a creamer. To do it, gently spoon on the whipping cream, making sure to get it about an inch thick. You can do it, I believe in you.

Now let’s show you how you make this super tasty Irish Coffee recipe!
