Fort Officers drank this often, apparently;

1 pint of cream
1 glass sack
2 egg whites
1/4 pound of very fine sugar

Use a wisk to whip and beat the ingredients together into a froth. Skim the top and serve into glasses (crystal is preferred, of course).

"Sack" is an old term for "bottle". So, an integral part of the ingredients is that you use a 'glass bottle' to mix the other ingredients in so that you can visually witness the making of the Syllabub (so you can see that the 'frothiness' is taking place). I guess the neck of the glass bottle would have to be pretty wide in order to allow the mixer to get a wisk inside to whip and beat the ingredients.oh, it's just so complicated.

It sounds like one of those drinks that is just charged with sugar and likely sends your head spinning. Geez, there's stuff like that being marketed today in the corner stores (ie: JOLT). Maybe we should create the Glengarry Beverage Company and our first non-alcoholic drink could be a recreated version of Syllabub. :^)
