Tom and Jerry Drink




I tried a new drink over the Christmas holiday and it was scrumptious to say the least! But I can't really explain how good it was without explaining how freaking cold it was. It was our first White Christmas ever (YEA), and this was the perfect drink to warm me up. Ya know, I'm a Texas girl... and I can only handle small spurts of cold... very small. This was blizzard like conditions!! 40 mile an hour sustained winds with gusts up to 60 and below freezing temps! Seriously, I don't know how people up north survive??? So cold it just chills you to the bone... unless, you insert yummy warm drink and then, I'm a happy girl!!
I reseached several recipes to make sure I got it right, so first I will give you the recipe I ended up making (enough for a couple of servings) then I will give you the recipe that Lorie gave me (enough to share!) Thanks Lorie!

So here ya go!

Ingredients
1 egg separated
1 tbsp sugar
rum
brandy
hot water
nutmeg

Directions
Start by heating water (I just ran about 4 cups thru my coffee pot). Then, separate egg into two bowls. Beat egg white until stiff, then beat yolk with sugar until lemon yellow in color. Carefullyfold whites into yellow for form a batter and refridgerate until ready to use. Now it's time to make a drink.

Place a heaping spoon ful of batter in a mug (filling about 1/3 full). Add half a shot of each rum and brandy then fill with hot water. Stir and top with a sprinkle of nutmeg and enjoy!!

Now here is the recipe that Lorie gave me
Ingredients
1 dozen eggs
1 lb powdered sugar
rum
brandy
hot water
nutmeg

Directions
Start by heating water (I just ran about 4 cups thru my coffee pot). Then, separate egg into two bowls. Beat egg white until stiff, then beat yolk with sugar until lemon yellow in color. Carefullyfold whites into yellow for form a batter and refridgerate until ready to use. Now it's time to make a drink.

Place a heaping spoon ful of batter in a mug (filling about 1/3 full). Add half a shot of each rum and brandy then fill with hot water. Stir and top with a sprinkle of nutmeg and enjoy!!

Note: I mixed powdered sugar in the egg, but found that it wasnt sweet enough for me, so I added about three spoons of granulated sugar to my cup and it was perfect.
