How to make the Tom & Jerry Cocktail

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:

  • 12 Eggs, separated
  • 1 tsp Cream of tartar
  • 2 lb Sugar
  • 2 oz Dark Jamaican-style rum
  • 1 tsp Vanilla extract (optional)
