Tom and Jerry - holiday cocktail

While home for Thanksgiving, I witnessed the traditional craze of the seasonal Tom and Jerry cocktail. Does anyone know of any Boston area spots that showcase this midwestern/great lakes cocktail? Due to the seperation and whipping of the whites, folding of the yolks, it does not seem like the thing one can simply walk into anywhere and ask for.

      Exactly, thanks. I just came across that myself! Reminder to self - do a search

    2. I know for certain that No. 9 Park has them on again already: the vintage mugs generally come out with the first snow. Like sibling Drink, it has the advantage of a kitchen with a pastry chef who makes a really first-rate T&J batter.

        That is good to know! You have just firmed up my Thursday plans. I may have talked Tom at Island Creek into having them on NYE but hoping he throws them on a for a snowy Sunday brunch sooner than that.

      2. If you like Tom & Jerrys, you should read "Dancing Dan's Christmas" by Damon Runyan.

          Excellent, thanks! It is on my list.

        2. Drink makes them whenever it snows.

          1. This "wintry mix" has prompted Drink to produce Tom and Jerrys tonight (Tues, Nov 27).
