These are wonderful warming drinks to serve around a Yule fire, a camp fire, or anywhere else a wonderful rush of rum, brandy or other warmth would be welcome. This recipe will make about four, and can be easily multiplied.
When you want to do a round of Tom and Jerries, first simmer up water and/or milk, about 4-5 ounces per drink.
Shortly before serving, prepare the egg mixture. For each four servings, take:
Separate the whites into a copper bowl. Beat yolks until thick and creamy. Add:
Beat until stiff, mix in:
Beat whites until stiff, fold into above mixture.
To make a Tom and Jerry, put a heaping tablespoon of the egg mixture in a large cup, add 2 or 3 ounces of rum, brandy, tequila, sherry, madiera or other spirit, and fill with either hot milk or water, or a mixture of the two. A shot of rich cream is nice or a spoonful of whipped cream. Stir gently, and garnish with a bit of ground nutmeg or mace. For the unitiated, this is a very warm and invigorating drink.
