Tom and Jerry


Favored by skiers and cold-weather captives, the Tom and Jerry is a hot drink made with beaten eggs, hot milk or water, liquor (such as brandy, bourbon or rum), sugar and spices. It's served in a large mug and usually sprinkled with grated nutmeg. The drink takes its name from the principal characters in the early 19th-century novel, Life in London.
