Tom & Jerry


2 eggs, separated
1 tablespoon granulated sugar
1/2 teaspoon ground allspice
2 tablespoons (1 ounce) light rum
2 tablespoons (1 ounce) brandy
1/8 teaspoon cream of tartar
1-1/3 cups hot milk
Whole nutmeg


Beat egg yolks, sugar, and allspice at high speed with an electric mixer until thick and lemon-colored. Blend in rum and brandy.

In separate mixing bowl, beat egg whites and cream of tartar until they form firm (but not dry) peaks. Fold in yolk mixture. Spoon ½ cup of the mixture into four warmed 8-ounce mugs. Fill each with ⅓ cup hot milk. Grate a bit of nutmeg on top and serve immediately.
