Bahama Bob"s Tom and Jerry for the Holidays

     The Tom and Jerry is one of those hot holiday drinks that has been around for many many years.  It is a true classic that I remember even as a kid in the 50's, less the alcohol, but none the less a wonderful hot drink that meant it was getting close to Christmas.

    There are a lot of recipes to make your own batter, but for me I like to head to the store and pick up one that fits my taste.  One of my favorites is Trader Vic's, it is spicy and really flavorful.
