3 Amarula cocktails you should try at home

Amarula is a lush, creamy liqueur that is created from South Africa’s marula fruit. A favourite of Sub Saharan elephants, the marula fruit is also known as the jelly plum. Comprising creamy, nutty and tangy flavours, the fruit is first allowed to ripen under the African sun before it is harvested and fermented. After double distillation, marula wine becomes a clear spirit and is aged in oak barrels before fresh dairy cream is added to create the sweet and creamy Amarula liqueur.
