This vintage drink has died out too soon. Let's bring back this tasty, Christmas beverage with all the nostalgia it represents.

This was the first year my husband and I have ever made/tried it. It won't be the last.

I was inspired to make this after catching a glimpse of the popular Tom and Jerry punch bowls and mugs from the 60s and before.

If anyone wants to send me an early Christmas present....

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Hand beat 9 egg whites until creamy and stiff. Then add 3/4 cup of dark brown sugar and continue to beat until fluffy.
2
In a separate mixing bowl, beat yolks, vanilla, spices, sugar, and salt. Beat until well combined.

Fold yolks into egg whites.

This can be stored in the refrigerator at this point.
5
When ready to serve, heat milk in the stove, but do not scald.

In a mug, add 3 tablespoons of your Tom and Jerry batter, 1-2 tablespoons of spiced rum, 1-2 tablespoons of honey brandy, and fill the rest of the mug with hot milk.

Give a quick stir and serve. Just omit the rum and brandy when serving to children. Some prefer bourbon to brandy, but the choice is yours. I recommend the honey brandy.
