Our answer

Nigella's White Tiramisu (from HOW TO EAT) is a pale but very interesting version of the traditional coffee-soused tiramisu and is a good alternative in the summer as it partners particularly well with raspberries and other summer berries.

Nigella uses white rum as this helps to keep the mascarpone mixture suitably light in colour. However we have also made this with Cointreau as an alternative to the rum. Cointreau is sweeter than rum but we have not found that it makes the overall dessert too sweet. Colourless triple sec can also be used as an alternative.
