As much as we love our traditions, we’ve sadly discovered that it’s impossible to throw Boerewors on the braai in sub-zero temperatures. As some of us are spending this Christmas in the chilly parts of the US, we’ll just have to go with lamb in the oven and warm ourselves up with a little cup of Amarula Coffee Surprise. This is a delicious Amarula based cocktail we’ve come to love (maybe a little too much). We hope you have enjoyed some Amarula on safari and know just how yummy it is!
Amarula is made from the fruit of the Marula tree and a dash of cream. Elephants love to eat the Marula fruit, and rumor has it they get drunk as it ferments in their bellies. We’ve also discovered that the Marula tree is fantastic to sleep in… very versatile tree this.
The Amarula Coffee Surprise Recipe:
- 4 shots of espresso (or 4 cups strong filter coffee)
- 60 ml (that’s 2 shots) Amarula Liquor
- 50 ml whipped cream
We wish you all the best this holiday season!
