On a cold and snowy November day in 1947, Billy Flaherty is hard at work in the kitchen of a relative’s St. Paul restaurant where he is finalizing the trial and error perfection of his family’s Tom & Jerry recipe. The recipe was brought over by the Flaherty family from Ireland in 1927 and for years, Billy’s mom and dad enjoyed making Tom & Jerry batter at home to serve for the holidays. Billy, being an entrepreneur, was determined to perfect and package the decades-old family Tom & Jerry recipe to sell this traditional holiday drink.

After much experimentation, on November, 1, 1948, Flaherty’s Tom & Jerry Batter was introduced to the American public for retail sales to bars, grocery, and liquor stores. For the first time, you could have a Tom & Jerry in your home for the holidays without all the work of making it from scratch. Ever since then, Flaherty’s Tom & Jerry Batter has always been the #1 choice of Tom & Jerry connoisseurs for the holidays. To this day, the Flaherty family is proud to sell their traditional family recipe, which blends the finest natural ingredients, along with love and care for the tradition of the Tom & Jerry drink itself to you.

Today, Flaherty’s original Tom & Jerry Batter is manufactured in 3 locations under strict family supervision. Over the years, changes in public tastes, trends, and public health rules have put 26 competitors out of business. Through it all the Flaherty family continues to produce a high quality, fully pasteurized product. The Flaherty family has been fully pasteurizing their Tom & Jerry Batter since 1961; investing in costly pasteurizing equipment while larger competitors tried to get by without further investments.

How to Make the Best Tom & Jerry

Pre-heat a 10-12 oz. mug. Then fill it half full of Flaherty’s Tom & Jerry Batter. Add ½ shot of dark rum along with ½ shot of good brandy. Fill the remainder of the mug to the brim with either piping hot water or milk. Top with grated nutmeg and serve with a stirring spoon.
