Syllabub, an alternative to Eggnog

I love eggnog, but some people don't. If you fall into the latter camp and still want to imbibe a traditional holiday beverage, try making Syllabub. This concotion is frothy just like the snowman. Since it's a bit boozy that's how the lyrics will sound as well after you have a few glasses ...

 Oh, frothy, the 'thoman, wuzza jolly happy sssoul ...

1 pint heavy cream
1/2 pint sherry
