Christmas Eve Drinks…Old-Fashioned Tom and Jerry!!

A Warm and Frothy Holiday Drink…

Sometimes your in the mood for a warm “after dinner” drink filled with all the Christmas flavors you love. I was just introduced to this drink by my boyfriend’s mother. The minute I tried it I was hooked. 🙂  It tasted like a warm and frothy eggnog, perfect for any family gathering.

Back in the day people made this drink from scratch, but luckily today all you have to do is purchase the Tom & Jerry batter in the freezer section of your local grocery store or liquor store.

Easy Tom and Jerry

1-2 tablespoons brandy

1 -2 teaspoon dark Puerto Rican rum

2 heaping spoonfuls of Tom and Jerry Mix

Pumpkin seasoning or fresh nutmeg & cinnamon

Boiling water

In a pot boil some water. Then grab your holiday mug and pour in the brandy and the rum. The smooth flavor of the rum rounds out the taste of the brandy.

The picture above shows what the batter looks like. It’s made from beaten eggs, sugar, and vanilla. Your going to want to add in about 2 large spoonfuls of the sticky, sweet batter into your mug. 🙂

Note: If you are having a holiday party you can make several of these in advanced up to this step.

Next, fill the mug to the brim with hot boiling water. With a spoon carefully stir out all the lumps until the drink is smooth and frothy. 😉

Lastly, top with a nice sprinkle of pumpkin pie seasoning or fresh nutmeg! That was easy 🙂

Ho Ho Ho, Merry Christmas!!
