Dig out those flip flops and the sunscreen - summer is coming!
As the weather starts to heat up, step up your day drinking with an icy treat made with Amarula Cream, a South African treat made using the fruit of the indigenous marula tree. A decadent tipple, Amarula Cream is light brown in color, creamy on the palate and can be enjoyed neat, on the rocks and in an array of drinks - including boozy shakes!
Personally, I am huge fan of Amarula Cream and it is one of the things that I used to always look forward to seeing each time we cruised. However, the good news is that you can find Amarula pretty much everywhere now, so it should be part of your bar to enjoy by itself, in your coffee, or now as part of a frozen cocktail like these below ...
