Directions:
Combine 1 C milk and 1 C cream. Whisk in a medium bowl just until blended egg yolks, sugar and nutmeg. Heat in large saucepan over medium low heat 2 C milk and 2 C cream. While whisking, slowly add part of the hot milk and cream mixture to the egg yolks. Then slowly pour the cream and egg mixture back into the saucepan, stirring constantly until the mixture becomes a little thicker and reaches a temperature of about 175. Do not overheat or the mixture will curdle. Remove from heat and immediately stir in the combined 1 C milk and 1 C heavy cream. Strain through a fine mesh strainer into a storage container and cool. Chill thoroughly, uncovered, then stir in 1/2 C brandy, cognac, dark rum or bourbon. Cover and refrigerate for at least 3 hours or up to 3 days. Serve sprinkled with ground nutmeg.
