Delicious, easy Old English dessert. Perfect for summer!

  • 150 mls of sweet sherry
  • 2 tablespoons brandy
  • 50 grams caster sugar
  • 300 mls double cream
  • Sprigs of mint for decorating
  1. Grate lemon rind finely and squeeze juice. Place in a bowl and add sugar, brandy and sherry.
  2. Stir until sugar has dissolved. Whisk cream until it forms soft peaks.
  3. Gently fold cream into lemon mixture. Spoon into small glass dishes, decorate with a sprig of mint and chill in the fridge for several hours. Lovely served with shortbread! :)
