Alchermes is a type of liqueur prepared by infusing neutral spirits with sugar, cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg and vanilla. Its chief use is in coloring pastry, although a quick dessert is sometimes made by adding it to mascarpone and sugar. Its most famous use is in Zuppa inglese - the Italian version of an English trifle.
