A Tom & Jerry is an early 1800s Christmas cocktail tradition referencing two characters in a London holiday play, who were not a cat and mouse.
This brandy & rum whipped nog is served at holiday parties in a themed ceramic punch bowl and cups that you can still find in antique shops. It was the first truly amazing holiday classic cocktail I learned while working at an amazing place.
To celebrate this year, I created this variation of the original with bourbon and coconut milk and named it after two of my favorite Christmas movie characters because “SNOW!” was too short.
