Temptress (Tiramisu Gelato with Rum)

What could be more tempting than Tiramisu Gelato with Rum?   Cheesy Mascarpone goodness, Expresso, Chocolate, Spiced Rum and Lady Finger cookies.

IF YOU feel good after enjoying tiramisu, there could be a good reason.  Tiramisu was invented by the brothels in the gorgeous northern Italian town of Treviso, renowned for its relaxed, pleasure focused people.

In Italian, tiramisu literally means “pull me up, or, more literally, “pull it up”.  Laced with sugar and booze, tiramisu is an energy bomb that not only tempts the taste buds and lifts the spirit – but can also apparently provide a certain physical excitement.

Tiramisu was developed to reinvigorate exhausted clients inside the houses of ill-repute, before, during and after sex sessions to keep customers going and their money flowing.

Tiramisu was a standard component of the business.  The more tiramisu swallowed, the more flourishing the prostitution business was.
