This Holiday season looks a lot different. With some stores closed down and restrictions happening in some locations people are looking to create unique traditions from their own homes with their immediate family
So what is Amarula?
“Made from the fruit of the sacred Marula tree that grows wild and uncultivated in the subequatorial regions of Africa. Handpicked by local communities, naturally fermented and distilled in copper pot stills, the spirit is matured for 2 years in aged oak barrels, which imparts the wood spice characteristics of vanilla and caramel naturally enhanced by the addition of cream, to create a rich and velvety smooth taste. Each bottle is a piece of Africa, made to be savoured.”
Every Holiday season Glen and I love to sip on specialty drinks. We usually start ‘Baking Day’ as we call it and make gingerbread, shortbread and various other Christmas themed sweets.
This day is one of our favourite traditions as the whole family joins in with Andy Williams playing in the background.
Today I’m bringing you along on the tradition and teaching you how to make four different drinks with Amarula!
