Option...I have run out of Rum sometimes..I have used Courvoisier or Cognac. Or you could use any flavor of Schnapps, a sweeet wine, Lemocello or Annesette would be good too.
I have used this recipe over left over Banana Bread, Chiffon Cakes, or just a box mix of different flavored cakes. Instead of buying the cake.

Another way I have done this is by using a Lemon Pound cake, a jigger of Lemoncello and Lemon Curd...

And instead of using Ice Cream I have use Lemon Sorbet with left over Angel Food cake..and add the lemon curd and Lemoncello.
