With the snow in the north and a little chilly weather (50’s at night) down here in Sunny South Florida, I thought it might be nice to throw a couple of Hot Rum Drinks your way.
(Drink recicpes from Drink of the Week)
Tom & Jerry
1 oz. Dark Rum
1 oz. Brandy
1 tsp. Sugar
6 oz. Hot water milk, or coffee
Seperate egg in two bowls. Add Rum & Brandy to the yolk and beat together until frothy. In th other bowl beat the egg white until it peaks then add sugar and bet until stiff. Fold into the liqour mixture. Pour into a coffee mug and top with the water, milk or coffee. (Ready made batter can be store bought – for this simply add alcohol and water, milk or coffee.)
Very Merry Cocoa
1 oz. Vodka
1 oz. Kahlua
1 oz. Creme de Menthe (white or green, your choice, I like green)
1 oz Bailey’s, or a hazelnut creme is also tasty.
Mix the liquors together in a glass or shaker first. Make cocoa as you normally would (leaving out some of the water/milk), then dump the liquor mix in on top, and stir. It’s cocoa with a pretty strong kick, but the mini-marshmallows can make you feel like a kid again (just don’t let the kids confuse the drinks!).

I could have used these recipes earlier in the week when Snowtorious B.I.G. came through town. The Very Merry Cocoa sounds delicious.
I saw the Tom and Jerry’s of Trader Vics website and would love more of there products but hate paying shipping but this Tom and jerry looks like its all things I have in my kitchen. Why would I need TV then?
Lovely! That’s just the ticket for this wintry weather here in the north! Thank you for sharing 🙂
Groovy! I’m going to try one of these over the weekend before it’s 70° again on Monday 😉
