Sweet Liqueur in lemon trifle question

javaandjazz Aug 20, 2009 03:13 PM

In the latest edition of "Everyday Food" there is a recipe for an easy lemon trifle made with lemon curd. It calls for drizzling the lady fingers with dessert wine such as sherry or a sauternes. What could I use in place of those? Limoncello........any other suggestions? Thanks!

    ok, made it with the vanilla vodka and it smells heavenly! I can't wait to try it!

      I agree with Limoncello or Grand Marnier... you could also try some of flavored German Schnapps or some Cointreau?

      What about a ginger brandy or vanilla vodka? Thanks!

        I think Limocello would be perfect! You could also try other fruit liqueurs like Grand Marnier or Crème de cassis or raspberry liqueur or even a sweet white wine.

          i have used limoncello several times--in lemon triffles and vacherins-- and have been very pleased. i like a fairly tart lemon curd and this might be helping the limoncello.
