Talking Double Cream

Anybody have any drink recipes that require double cream? Or would taste better with double cream?

I bought some today and i dont know what to do with it anymore lol. I initially wanted to make some chocolate eclairs and fill it with the cream but now i have gone off the idea.

All ideas welcome, thanks!

I dont think double cream lasts very long, so quick replies would be very appreciated.

(and i think double cream is the same thing as heavy cream, just to avoid any confusion)

How about some cranachan? Toast some oats, put layer of fruit (raspberries are traditional, but I've used rhubarb or plums or goosberries if I've had them around) in a glass, layer of double cream, layer of oats, keep going until it's all gone and top with a cream layer. Add a couple of raspberries on the top!

Whoops, this isn't a drink recipe... What about Atholl Brose? Have you got some whisky?

kahlua & cream is always delicious, though I'm not sure if you can get that in Scotland. It's a coffee liqueur.
1 part kahlua
Add cream & pour over ice
White Russians are great too.
2 parts kahlua
1 part vodka
Add cream & pour over ice

Whip it and put dollops on a cookie sheet. Freeze for when you want just a dollop of cream.

Oh sorry, the kahlua is the coffee liqueur lol. If i brew some coffee into a sort of a paste with cream would that be an alternative?

Something in my head keeps telling me to

Whip it and put dollops on a cookie sheet. Freeze for when you want just a dollop of cream. J/K

and by the way, cream lasts longer than milk
