Tom and Jerry

Like eggnog but want to try something different? Try this old warhorse, dating from the early 1800’s, long rumored to be the invention of Jerry Thomas, the OG of bartenders and mixologists, though it appears now a sportswriter named Pierce Egan came up with this. This particular recipe comes from, our favorite cocktail recipe repository.
