Ingredients in the Tom & Jerry Cocktail

  • Boiling water
  • 1 tbsp Tom & Jerry Batter*
  • 1 oz Cognac
  • 1 oz Dark rum
  • Whole milk, hot

Garnish: Nutmeg, clove and allspice

Glass: Coffee mug or Tom & Jerry cup

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


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


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.
