COFFEE / ALCOHOL MIXTURE-
  1. Blend the coffee, Kahlua and Grand Marnier and if you have a kitchen sprayer – this works great or you will need a pastry brush to apply to the Lady Fingers. (*Also when recipes call for specific alcohol ingredients, if you don’t have on hand and they usually don’t call for much – you can purchase small containers of 1-2 ounces at most any liquor store.)
TO BUILD YOUR TIRAMISU-
  1. Line bottom of glass bowl or pan of choice with Lady Finger halves. Spray or brush with coffee/alcohol mixture. Layer cream cheese mixture on top. Repeat. Sprinkle with cocoa for garnish. Cover and refrigerate overnight
