The Merest Trifles

I can envision a whole array of trifles with summer fruit and matching/contrasting liqueurs.  I love that trifles are collages of flavor and color.  Four that strike me as particularly amiable (and two of which I shall make this evening for tomorrow's lunch) are:

blueberries, ladyfingers, ginger snaps, vanilla pudding, blueberry juice, ginger marmalade, pistachios

raspberries, chocolate pound cake, orange pudding, apricot almond jam or orange marmalade, slivered almonds, Amaretto or orange liqueur, amaretti

pears, chocolate pound cake, chocolate pudding, pear liqueur or Amaretto, piñon nuts, orange marmalade, orange zest, amaretti

peaches, ladyfingers, vanilla pudding, apricot almond jam, slivered almonds, brandy or rum, amaretti
