To me, coffee means family. Throughout my life, my family gatherings consist of warm, hearty food, rounded off with a coffee and a slice of Tiramisu for dessert. In these lockdown times, it is important to remain positive, reminding yourself of better times. So, I have combined the major flavours of my family's Tiramisu, and combined them into a refreshing yet decadent cocktail, The Italian Pick Me Up.

The name derives from the origins of the word 'Tiramisu' in Italian, meaning "pick me up".



 1.50 oz Mr Black Coffee Liqueur
 1 oz Vanilla Liqueur(Galliano)
 1 oz Thickened Cream
 0.50 oz Amaretto(Disaronno)



Pour ingredients into your cocktail shaker.

    This cocktail had simplicity in mind. Hopefully many people have access to the ingredients, and can make it themselves!
