DharMag February 2016 How to prepare the boozy Tiramisù with Cognac, Cointreau and dark chocolate shavings

Alcoholic Tiramisù recipe with Cognac Cointreau and dark chocolate shavings, Ita Saint Valentine’s Day is coming, so we decided to give you a recipe to share with your better half: Tiramisù.

But this is not the classic, traditional Tiramisù, no, this is special, and hide a hot, pulsing alcoholic heart that will make your Valentine’s dinner explosive.

If we want to see it as an aphrodisiac dessert, fine, why not.

The two spirits we have chosen to flavor this Tiramisù are Cointreau (or Aurum) and Cognac. Cointreau with its aromatic, rich and zesty flavors is perfect to cut the fattiness of the Mascarpone cheese, adding amazing nuances that recall orange’s delicious freshness.

Cognac instead will be mixed with coffee giving it some alcoholic thickness, amplifying its toasty aromas with sweet and spicy notes.

The recipe is not difficult, but you have to make it in advance to let it rest in the refrigerator. So, are you ready to prepare the perfect, boozy Tiramisù for Valentine’s Day?

Prepare the coffee, put it in a bowl and add the cognac, mixing gently.

Soak the ladyfingers, being careful not to soak too much, otherwise they become mushy.
