Almost like eggnog, but warm and creamy. We have an annual Christmas Tom & Jerry Party and this is the recipe we've perfected.

Directions

  1. Separate the eggs. In a large bowl beat the egg whites until frothy. Whisk in 3/4 cup of the confectioners' sugar and beat until stiff peaks are formed.
  2. Beat the egg yolks with the remaining 1/2 cup of confectioners' sugar and about 4 to 5 tablespoons of the brandy until light and lemon colored. Fold the egg whites into the egg yolks and refrigerate.
  3. In a large stock pot heat the milk until hot but do not boil. Reduce heat and keep milk hot.
  4. To each mug add 2 tablespoons brandy (or more to taste) and 1 large heaping tablespoon of egg mixture. Stir and fill mug with hot milk. Place another tablespoon of egg mixture on top and sprinkle with nutmeg.

This recipe was a God send as they are a favorite of my husband, but unheard of in this part of the country. I cut the recipe in half for a small dinner party. My guests enjoyed them with Kaluha, Bailey's, and/or brandy. This is not a "make ahead" recipe as the egg whites will disolve over time and the fluff makes the drink.

Absolutely great recipe for Tom and Jerry's. As mentioned, do not make ahead, but this is simply wonderful for holiday parties. Very yummy, and you can adjust the alcohol to taste. It even tastes good with no alcohol for any children or under 21 guests at your gathering.
