~Eggnog

A drink make from eggs beaten with milk, cream, and sugar, often spiked with rum or other alcoholic liquor, and sometimes seasoned with cinnamon; usually spelled eggnog. It is a traditional drink served at social gatherings during the Christmas season.

~Tom and Jerry

A hot drink consisting of rum or another liquor, a beaten egg, milk or water, sugar, and spices. The drink is named after Corinthian Tom and Jerry Hawthorn, characters in Life in London, or Days and Nights of Jerry Hawthorne and his elegant friend Corinthian Tom by Pierce Egan. Egan was a noted chronicler of London low life of the Regency Period when the rich young bucks of London like Tom and Jerry were notorious for mischief in the streets, breaking windows, and assaulting passers-by. A Tom and Jerry shop was a low beer hall in the 19th century, a name derived both from Egan's work and from the older name Jerry shop that predated Egan.

The verb to Tom and Jerry means "to engage in riotous behavior".
