Recipe for Tom and Jerry - Ingredients: 12 eggs,1 cup sugar,1 bottle brandy, pinch of ground allspice, pinch of ground cinnamon, pinch of ground cloves,1 bottle rum (dark), milk, and nutmeg.
Instructions: Separate the eggs. Beat the whites until they form a stiff froth, add the yolks (to which you have added the sugar) "until they are as thin as water", as the professor advises, gradually adding 4 oz. brandy (spiceaholics will also add a pinch each of ground allspice, cinnamon, and cloves). Fold the whites into the yolks. When ready to serve, give it another stir and then put 1 tablespoon of this batter in a small mug or tumbler. Now add 1 oz. brandy (although some prefer bourbon) and 1 oz. rum, stirring constantly to avoid curdling. Fill to the top with hot milk and stir until you get foam. Sprinkle a little grated nutmeg on top. This one may require practice and certain amount of fiddling, but it's well worth the effort. Note: Some people find the milk too rich and filling, so they use half hot milk, half boiling water.
Tom and Jerry's are a traditional Christmas time cocktail in the United States. It was devised by sports writer Pierce Egan in the 1820's.
