The Tom And Jerry Cocktail
If you’re looking for a delicious cocktail to warm you up during the holiday season, look no further than the Tom and Jerry. This classic drink has been a favorite of mine for many years, and I’m excited to share my favorite recipe with you.
- 6 eggs
- 1 cup powdered sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
- 1/4 teaspoon ground allspice
- 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 4 cups milk
- 1 cup bourbon
- 1 cup dark rum
- Whipped cream (for serving)
- Ground nutmeg (for garnish)
Step 1: In a large mixing bowl, separate the egg yolks from the whites. Set the whites aside for later use and add the sugar to the yolks. Mix well until the sugar is completely dissolved.
Step 2: Add the cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, cloves, and vanilla extract to the bowl. Mix until all the spices are well combined.
Step 3: In a saucepan, heat the milk over medium heat until it’s hot but not boiling. Slowly pour the hot milk into the egg mixture, whisking constantly to avoid scrambling the eggs.
Step 4: Return the mixture to the saucepan and cook over low heat, stirring constantly, until it thickens slightly. Be careful not to let it boil.
Step 5: Remove the saucepan from the heat and stir in the bourbon and rum. Mix well to combine all the ingredients.
To serve the Tom and Jerry, pour the warm cocktail into mugs or heatproof glasses. Top each serving with a dollop of whipped cream and a sprinkle of ground nutmeg. Serve immediately and enjoy!
The Tom and Jerry cocktail is a delightful holiday treat that is perfect for cozy nights by the fire or festive get-togethers with friends and family. Its creamy texture and warm spices make it a comforting drink that will surely bring joy to your taste buds. So, why not give this classic recipe a try and make your winter celebrations extra special?
