imported from Milan, Italy. So when I first tried to scoop a spoonful, the tiramisu didn’t quite give way to my spoon. However, that didn’t deter me for long. It was more mascarpone ice cream cake with lady fingers and espresso flavours then a true tiramisu, but the flavours were there. It probably just needed a bit more time to defrost, but still a good alternative if you’re craving the need for a tiramisu.
We got to sample various drinks that evening starting with the Red Sangria. Fruity and refreshing, it’s the perfect summer time drink made with wine spiked with blackcurrant liqueur and orange Italian soda. The Italian Spritz is perfect for those that are looking for something a bit less sweet. Made with mainly Prosecco, Aperol, and a splash of soda water, it’s got a pleasant bitter orange taste from the aperol. Our wine that evening was the Ricasoli Barone Chianti. You can never go wrong with Chianti’s. A perfect medium bodied wine with fruity aromas and light tannins. It’s both good as a sipping wine or with pizza.
