salt
milk
brandy

Nutmeg

To create the drunk. mix the eggs, sugar and salt, whisking well. Do this while pouring milk in a slow, steady stream. Turn the heat on low. Wait until the mixture thickens, this could take up to 30 minutes.

Strain mixture through a sieve into a large bowl to remove any cooked bits of egg. After this, add brandy, vanilla extract, and nutmeg and stir. Put the mixture in the fridge for around 4 hours. When ready to serve, pour heavy cream into a bowl and whip until it forms soft peaks. Fold whipped cream into cold custard mixture until combined.
