Tom & Jerry
A restaurant near my house when I was growing up used to make these drinks when I was little around the holiday season. I always loved the name because it reminded me of the cartoon but it wasn’t until I was much older that I could actually drink them!
- 1 egg
- 1 Tablespoon sugar
- 1 1/2 ounce rum
- 1 cup milk that has been warmed until it is hot but don’t let it boil!
- freshly grated nutmeg
Separate egg but save both parts. Beat egg yolk with sugar and mix until sugar dissolves. Add rum and egg white to a coffee mug and pour in hot milk and then egg yolk/sugar mixture. Whisk until smooth. Sprinkle top with grated nutmeg (not too much as it is strong).
