Make any day a holiday by fixing a bowl of decadent Tom & Jerry.
Rinse a small coffee mug (or, indeed, a white ceramic Tom & Jerry cup) with boiling water to warm it and discard the water
Add the batter, cognac and rum to the cup and fill with hot milk
Garnish with a mixture of 2 parts freshly grated nutmeg to 1 part each ground clove and ground allspice
*Tom & Jerry Batter INGREDIENTS:
PREPARATION: In a nonreactive bowl, whip the egg whites with the cream of tartar until they form stiff peaks. In a separate bowl, beat the yolks with the sugar, rum and vanilla (if using). When the mixture is completely liquid, fold it into the whites.
Think you know the booze?
Let’s start with some basics.
