  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.

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...

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

Tom and Jerry's have always been a winter treat since I was a young girl (of course back then it was always served sans liquor). My husband and I decided to try this recipe and we will never go ...

This could be a 5 star rated drink mix, but, by increasing the spice from 1/4 teaspoon to 1/2 teaspoon each makes all the difference and brings it too a 5 star recipe.
