A hot alcoholic drink made from hot coffee, beaten eggs, rum, sugar and brandy. It was popular before prohibition. Mentioned in "Dancing Dan's Christmas" by Damon Runyan. You can sometimes find peach Fireking Tom and Jerry sets with a big mixing bowl that says "Tom and Jerry" and matching cups. Santa mugs are nice for serving Tom and Jerry, too.
This hot Tom and Jerry is an old time drink that is once used by one and all in this country to celebrate Christmas with, and in fact it is once so popular that many people think Christmas is invented only to furnish an excuse for hot Tom and Jerry, although of course this is by no means true.
