  1. Beat the butter and sugar with an electric mixer in a large bowl until smooth. Add the egg yolks one at a time, allowing each egg to blend into the butter mixture before adding the next. Beat egg whites until foamy in a large glass or metal mixing bowl, continuing to beat until soft peaks form. Lift your beater or whisk straight up: the egg whites will form soft mounds rather than a sharp peak. Mix the egg whites into the egg yolk mixture. Stir in the rum, salt, mace, allspice, cloves, nutmeg, and cardamom.
  2. To use the mix, combine 1 ounce rum and 1 cup hot milk in a mug. Stir in 1 tablespoon of the Tom and Jerry mixture.

EXCELLENT recipe! Tom & Jerrys are a family tradition so this year I wanted to try and make it instead of buy it. We add half brandy and half rum with ours and it is very good.

This was ABSOLUTELY wonderful. I followed the recipe exact. What a wonderful treat. My eggnog loving husband adored this and my kids had it sans whiskey and just drank it up.

Instead of milk and rum, my family always does a half oz of rum and an ounce of brandy. I know, Strong Drinks, right, but so delicious! I have honestly been looking for a recipe that didn't use flour in it, as the flour taste comes thru so much that it ruins the experience. Thank Goodness for a recipe that I can follow to a "T" and it comes out perfect, EVERY time!

My dad made homemade Tom & Jerry mix every Christmas. Sorry dad, but this outshines your mix. It is delicious. I would omit the Cloves and Mace as I am not a fan of those spices. If anything, I would add some cinnamon.

Wonderfull! perfect consistancy and flavor. We didnt have a scale, but figured out the proper amounts through a little investigation.

As a Wisconsin native, warm winter drinks are a must. We have a local bakery that makes their own mix, they have been the mix of choice. I made this recipe for the first time today, and it is fantastic! Only note I'll make is that the directions mention adding rum, but the ingredients don't list any rum. I make my Tom & Jerry with 1/2 to 1 ounce each brandy and rum, about 2 1/2 tablespoons mix and about one cup of near boiling water. Mmmmmm. Sure to warn you up from the inside out!

I made this recipe exactly as given and it was excellent. The only thing I changed was that I used brandy and more like 2-3 tbsp of mix for added thickness and flavor. The perfect warmer upper in the chilly days of winter.
