The Tom and Jerry Cocktail

The Tom and Jerry cocktail is a Christmas beverage inspired by the classical rum and brandy eggnog, and it was invented by a British journalist by the name of Pierce Egan in the 1820s; the cocktail however, has nothing to do with the famous cartoon characters, but was named after two characters from Egan’s book.

The Traditional Eggnog

The Eggnog is a traditional holiday cocktail commonly associated with Christmas, especially in Great Britain, the United States and Canada; it can be made from homemade recipes or bought ready-made in stores, with alcohols like brandy, rum, whiskey, bourbon or vodka.
