Explanations vary as to the meaning behind this dessert's name, which translates as "English soup." Some say it refers to its similarity to the English dessert called a trifle. Others believe it is a corruption of the verb inzuppare, "to sop." One of the key ingredients, alchermes, is a bright red liqueur that gets its color from kermes, an insect-based dye. Because alchermes may be hard to find, another red liqueur, such as Chambord, can be substituted.
