A bartender friend of mine got me hooked on a liqueur from South Africa called, AMARULA CREAM, and I can't get enough of it.
It's like a fruity, exotic version of Bailey's Irish Cream, & to me it tastes like caramelized fruit (mango, papaya).
My friend said this is the most popular drink made with Amarula. This makes a great after-dinner drink.
AMARULA CREAM is made from the fruit of the Marula tree, that's found in South Africa. The fruit is fermented into a wine that's aged in oak barrels for 2 yrs. It's then mixed with fresh cream.
**Pix isn't mine...(lost mine when moved).
To kick it up a notch, add a little vodka, brandy or cognac. This will thin it out so it's more like a cocktail, and also cut some of the sweetness.
