“Amarula Night Cap”

Over the Christmas holiday, someone introduced me to an unusual and unique liqueur. I had never heard of Amarula Cream Liqueur. Let me tell you, it has become a favorite. It’s easy to create my Amarula Night Cap. Serve up this intoxicating, creamy, smooth liqueur one of two ways. Pour a shot into a cup of hot coffee and top with whipped cream and a sprinkle of cinnamon. The second way is to serve a straight shot on the side with a cup of coffee. Doesn’t matter how you serve Amarula. Consequently, I will say I love it straight.

Let me tell you a bit about Amarula. Made from the exotic fruit of the Marula Tree and mixed with cream, hints of chocolate, butterscotch, and caramel. Amarula is beautifully smooth and wonderfully sweet. Such a delicious blend whose flavors take a mere two years to create one bottle. In Africa, the Marula Tree is a treasured botanical gem. Because Marula fruit is picked by hand, the fruit must be ripe and yellow in color. As a result, the fruit is made into a wine and distilled twice before fresh cream is added. The rare trees cannot be cultivated and only grow along the sub-equator of Africa and most relevant, only bare fruit once a year.

Amarula is distinctive and not like anything you have ever tasted. Like I said earlier, this marvelous liqueur has become a fast favorite. So whether you serve this amazing liqueur over ice, chilled in a shot glass, or a little something for that cup of coffee like my Amarula Night Cap, I guarantee you’ll find your favorite way of serving. I find this liqueur to be amazing and you will, too.
