I got some Tom and Jerry mix from the store around Thanksgiving time and realized I LOVED it and I had never had it before. Our local grocery store mixes this up and sells it around the holiday’s.
I found myself in a horrible situation. I ran out right before family and friends were coming over. YIKES! I realized on the container it only had a few ingredients on the label so I figured how hard could it be.
I did a lot of research online trying to see how people make there own versions and I really didn’t find a whole lot of help. So I decided to make my own version. It turned out amazing.
Here is what you need:
3 eggs seperated
1c. brown sugar
1 1/2c. powdered sugar
1/2 stick butter
1 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp. ground clove
1/2 tsp. nutmeg
1 tsp. vanilla bean paste (you can use vanilla extract if needed)
So first of all separate your eggs whites and yolks. Beat the egg whites until soft peaks form, set aside. Beat your 1/2 stick of butter till smooth, add your egg yolks and beat again till well combined. Add in your sugars and beat until nice and fluffy (about 3 minutes). Now add your vanilla bean, clove, cinnamon, and nutmeg. After mixing in your spices beat in your egg whites till nice and creamy.
Here is the secret to making this drink even more amazing. Just add a shot (or two) and your done.
Assembly: fill your cup 1/2 full with boiling water, add 2 heaping tbsp of Tom and Jerry mix to your cup, add 2 shots of Rum Chata.
Now it’s time to sit back and enjoy your yummy afternoon delight in peace and quiet. Just kidding you have 2 kids and like that will ever happen. Maybe after bedtime 😉
You can store this in the refrigerator for about a week or you can freeze it for up to 6 months for a relaxing treat any time.
