1 egg white
2 tbsp / 30 ml Super Fine Lantic or Rogers brand
1 tbsp / 15 ml Granulated Sugar Lantic or Rogers brand

REMOVE THE PEEL by straining through a sieve. Add the cognac, whipping cream, egg white and Super Fine to the sherry and beat the mixture until stiff.
BE CAREFUL not to over heat

COMBINE THE grated nutmeg and Granulated Sugar and sprinkle on before serving. A little lemon zest is also an attractive garnish.
