For those of you looking for something on the more sophisticated side you have my apologies. This blog unfortunately mirrors the author (yours truly.) Some of the humor is not for everyone but I liked it and it's my blog so there! My patrons sometimes ask me where I come up with some of this stuff. I am glad to tell them my mind is a lot like Canada. It is sometimes a bit cold, there are a few dark corners, some of it down right confusing and even a bit dirty but there is also a lot of neat stuff up there. So I hope you all enjoy this blog! ... Cheers!

Mmmmmmm Dessert! The Tiramisu Martini

One of my behind the bar gigs is at a Italian restaurant and for dessert they are well known for their Tiramisu for those of you who do not know what this is I will explain using Wikipedia.

"Tiramisu (Italian: tiramisù; Venetian: tiramesù [tirameˈsu]; literally "pull me up") is one of the most popular Italian cakes. It is made of biscuits (usually savoiardi) dipped in coffee, layered with a whipped mixture of egg yolks and mascarpone, and flavored with liquor and cocoa.[1] The recipe has been adapted into many varieties of puddings, cakes and other desserts."

OK now with that said I figure for those who don't want to eat anymore after a big Italian meal but still crave dessert here is the Tiramisu Martini.

Tiramisu Martini
1 oz. - Espresso (cold)
2 oz. - Vanilla Vodka
1/2 oz. - Irish Cream
1/2 oz. - Spiced Rum
1/2 oz. Creme de Cocoa (dark or light)
Splash of Grand Mariner
Garnish with Chocolate shavings
