Christiana Campbell's Tavern Raspberry Syllabub


Syllabub—a thick, frothy dessert made of wine, sugar and cream — originated in old England. This raspberry-topped version is served at Christiana Campbell's Tavern. Begin preparing it a day before serving.


  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 2/3 cup dry white wine
  • 1/2 cup fresh lemon juice
  • 1/3 cup dry Sherry
  • 2 tablespoons grated lemon peel
  • 2 cups chilled whipping cream
  • 2 (1/2 pint) baskets raspberries


  1. Whisk first 5 ingredients in medium bowl until sugar dissolves.
  2. Beat cream in large bowl to stiff peaks.
  3. Fold whipped cream into wine mixture.
  4. Divide mixture among 8 wineglasses.
  5. Cover and refrigerate overnight (syllabub mixture will separate).
  6. Sprinkle with berries and serve.

Makes 8 servings.
