Get out your mixer for this one. It calls for both whipped cream and stiffly beaten egg whites. And with all that beaten material folded in, it seems almost like drinking air. Unfortunately I did not have rum at home to spike it with. But it was still quite good.
6 eggs separated
1 cup heavy cream, whipped
1/2 cup honey
4 cups milk
(whisky, brandy or rum—optional)
Beat the egg yolks until they are light and lemony coloured.
Add the honey and beat again.
Blend in the milk.
Beat the egg whites until stiff but not dry.
Fold into the milk mixture.
Fold in the whipped cream.
Spike it if you like.
Pour into small glasses and sprinkle with freshly grated nutmeg.
