Whisk together the eggs, egg yolks, sugar, salt, peppermint and vanilla in a saucepan over a medium-low heat until combined. Slowly pour in the milk while whisking then raise the heat to medium. Whisk constantly until thick enough to coat the back of a spoon (30 - 35 minutes).
Pour through a sieve into a bowl, set the bowl in an ice water bath, leave to cool, add to an airtight container and place in the fridge for 4 hours.
Add the cream to a bowl and whisk to form stiff peaks. Fold in the egg mixture until combined and serve in a glass.
