Tiramisu - ish

Everybody loves Tiramisu - the rich dark heady combination of tastes and textures was surely sent by God to finish every great meal.  I used to make a lot of it but to be honest, in the summer it was a bit too heavy for me. So I decided to see if I could invent a summer version.  

I started off going back to basics and the whole 'pick me up' mix of coffee and alcohol.  I reckon that todays version is vodka and redbull.  So I made a tiramisu with the savoiardi biscuits soaked in a heady mix of Absolut and Red Bull.  It truly was as hideous as it sounds.  But mainly because Red Bull tastes like cheap chewing gum - the vodka hit the spot.  

So I tried vodka and blueberries and that did the trick.  Make the Tiramisu as normal but instead of soaking the biscuits in coffee and brandy, soak them in a 50 / 50 mix of vodka and white wine.  Then put a layer of blueberries over the biscuits before you add the mascarpone mix layer.  If this doesn't pick you up then baby you cannot be picked !
