Tom and Jerry (Hot New Year's Drink)
Drink Type: Hot Drink
1 3/4 oz. Rum (Preferably Old Mr. Boston Imported Rum) (more Rum drinks)
Preparing: first prepare the batter. Using a mixing bowl, separate the yolks and whites of 1 egg, beating each separately and thoroughly. Then combine both, adding enough superfine powdered sugar to stiffen. Add to this 1 pinch of baking soda and 1/4 oz. Old Mr. Boston Imported Rum to preserve the batter. Then add a little more sugar to stiffen. To Serve: Use hot Tom and Jerry mug. Using 1 tablespoon of above batter, dissolve in 3 tablespoons hot milk. Add 1 1/2 oz. rum. Then fill the mug with hot milk within 1/4 inch of top of mug and stir gently. Then top with 1/2 oz. brandy and grate a little nutmeg on top. The Secret of a Tom and Jerry is to have a stiff batter and a warm mug.
