Two Mondays ago, we had dinner at Eastern Standard after I my DJ set. The drink that Andrea had was one that I had read about in Josh Childs' column a few weeks ago. Josh described how the hot drink was created by Eastern's Bobby McCoy as a riff on the Tom & Jerry. Instead of taking a Christmas carol angle, Bobby went punk rock with a tribute to Sid Vicious and Nancy Spungen. Andrea's that night was made by bartender Seth Freidus.

Once made, the nutmeg spice complemented the aroma of the hot milk. A creamy sip offered up the aged rum's caramel notes, and the rum along with the Cognac flavors filled the swallow. Finally, the spiced syrup began to increase on the finish over successive sips.
