Flashback Friday: My First Tom and Jerry
Way back in 2017, when Blaise Keller still worked for KDLT and lived in Sioux Falls, he invited me over for a holiday shindig. At this shindig, my life was changed. I was introduced to Tom and Jerry!

No, I don't mean the cartoon.
This weekend I was introduced to a warm and delicious drink called Tom and Jerry! It will change your life. I know I am forever changed.
Anyway, I was introduced to it at a holiday party and it was so good.
Basically, it's a dough mixture that you put in a mug and then put hot water over that and then you add the booze.

I used a caramel whiskey and it was sooooo good.
Definitely worth trying. It's a holiday in a glass! I felt full of good tidings and cheer not to mention comfort and joy!
Ok, back to 2020, for some reason, I never thought to look up what was in the batter. Here are the ingredients according to allrecipes.com:
Whoa! Gonna have to put in some extra time at the gym, but totally worth it!
