I got this cookbook a long time ago and it comes with a Classical music cd, which my son listens to when he goes down for each of his naps. I finally got around to making one of the desserts in the book for a dinner party we had for some friends. Now I know 4 tablespoons sounds like it’s not that much liquor I think it’s a little over powering in this dessert. I would cut back to 2 1/2 or 3 tablespoons at the most. Overall I would make it again just with a little less booze.
