DESCRIPTION: A traditional beverage of cream & Sherry

  • 1 pint thick cream
  • 1/2 pint sherry
  • juice and grated rind of one lemon
  • 1/4 cup sugar
Chill a large bowl and put in all ingredients. Beat continuously, skimming off foam as it rises. Continue until all mixture has turned to foam. Put the foam in a pretty serving bowl and chill in a refrigerator.

For a solid version, whip the cream alone until it is stiff. Fold in the other ingredients and chill.

The first version is to be served as a drink; the second is to be eaten as a dessert with spoons.
