Serves 4

1/4 cup sweet white wine
1/2 cup sugar
Zest and juice of 1/2 lemon

In a small bowl, combine the wine, sugar, lemon juice, and zest and stir to dissolve.

In a large, chilled bowl, start beating the cream with a hand whisk or an electric mixer. Gradually add the wine mixture, whisking constantly, until the cream is fluffy with soft peaks.

Serve immediately or cover and chill until ready to serve.
