Enjoy this wonderful concoction of two delicious beverages blended together to create a truly exceptional one.
Does the roaring MGM lion, followed by the floating head of a cat and mouse ring a bell? The antics of a very gullible Tom, outmatched at every step by a witty Jerry’s nuisance made for one of the most well-loved cartoon shows of all time. As life would have it, there’s a cocktail named after the duo. Americans love their Tom & Jerry. It is a typical Thanksgiving and Christmas treat.
Often overshadowed by its forerunner, the mint julep, the origin of the classic whiskey smash stands open to interpretation.

Whisky Mac, formerly known as Whisky MacDonald, has its roots in British India where Colonel Hector MacDonald concocted this beverage. In 1899, the colonel proposed a demarcation between China and British India with a border. There was unrest after this demarcation which was followed by a breakout of cholera. Owing to medicinal properties of ginger, ginger wine gained wide popularity.
