Spicy Syllabub

Strike the perfect balance between naughty and nice with this beautiful syllabub. Spice-infused sherry steals the show, whipped into rich double cream and served up with delicate almond biscuits. The decadent syllabub packs a sophisticated punch, with festive cloves, cinnamon and allspice adding a festive touch that's sure to amaze your dinner guests.

  • Place the sherry in a bowl with the Cloves, Allspice, Cinnamon, sugar, lemon zest and juice and stir. Leave to infuse for about one hour.

  • Strain the liquid into a large bowl. Add the cream and whisk continuously until it leaves a thin trail. Place the biscuits in the bottom of four serving glasses and top with the syllabub. Refrigerate for about one hour before serving.
