New This Month

A British creation dating to the sixteenth century, the syllabub hovers between a thick drink and a dessert. Ours features mead, a honey- and flower-flavored spirit popular in early England; dessert wine such as Sauternes is as delicious.

Variations

Mead, a sweet honey wine, can be found at liquor stores. If you can't find it, use a sweet dessert wine such as Sauternes or Tokay. For a decorative flourish, dip the rims of serving glasses in lemon juice, then in fine sanding sugar.
