This is Africa’s most exotic cream liqueur produced from the fermented fruit of the Marula tree. Elegant and, yes, creamy, with an interesting twist of fruity sweetness, Amarula bottles disappear off the shelves of departmental stores and duty free shops almost as fast as they are produced. Made from sugar, cream and the fruit from the Marula tree, this is not just a favourite with liqueur connoisseurs alone. Amarula is a favourite with African elephant as well! With 17 per cent alcohol volume, it’s a mild liqueur, but the raw fruit is potent enough to get an elephant drunk. So, now you know what to look out for on the safari.
Pour Amarula over chocolate ice cream, or, for an interesting twist, how about pouring it (really cold) over steaming hot Cape Brandy Pudding? Always serve Amarula chilled.
