I’m reading a book about the first U.S. Congress, and I learned that at all the evening soirees (which apparently happened most every night) everyone drank whipped syllabub.
I texted a friend to ask what whipped syllabub was.
My friend texted to say: “Ha! That’s an old British thing. It’s a mixture of whipped cream, whipped egg whites, sugar, and white wine. Sound gross to me.”
Not me. I want to dress up like James Madison and have a whipped syllabub party.
