Today’s drink is a cozy one – the Tom & Jerry! This is a holiday favorite that’s been around for 200 years. What makes it so memorable is the texture – something created by using a batter. The batter should be enjoyed fresh, and most recipes require a large group to consume it all – so it really is perfect for a holiday party. This is a smaller recipe that’s perfect for 2-3 people, but it’s easily scaleable to serve the masses – if that’s your goal. Liberties can, and should be taken. It’s common to replace the hot water with hot milk, essentially creating hot eggnog. Or, if you want it richer, you could add softened butter to the batter and steer this drink closer to a hot buttered rum. Whatever approach you choose, may this fluffy, comforting drink warm your bones. Cheers!
