This is a deliciously light, creamy and sophisticated little dessert that was once known as Syllabub, it is like a rich, creamy, lemon alcoholic mousse.


Serves: 6 

  • 1 cup fresh cream
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 1/4 cup white wine (more if you are making punch)
  • 1/8 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • Zest of one lemon
  • Grated nutmeg, mint leaves and lemon slices for garnish

Preparation:10min  ›  Cook:1hour  ›  Ready in:1hour10min 

  1. Whip the cream in a chilled bowl until it begins to thicken.
  2. Add the sugar, white wine, lemon juice and rind. Continue whipping until thick and fluffy. If you want a dessert, chill the mixture in your fridge until serving time.
  3. If you wish to make syllabub punch: At this point continue adding white wine until the mixture reaches the consistency and size you want, add ice and serve from a punch-bowl.
  4. Tp Serve: Pour in chilled parfait glasses, garnished with a sprig of mint, a slice of lemon and a sprinkling of grated nutmeg. These will not be large servings: syllabub should be eaten slowly with a small spoon and savoured.
