There’s nothing like a drunk elephant to get my attention.
Whoa, whoa, whoa. It’ s a little early for that kind of talk.
Let me back up a moment.
Amarula Coffee is a South African favorite – a breezy concoction that includes your favorite coffee, some brown sugar (the sweetener of choice in South Africa), a shot or two of Amarula, and whipped cream.
It’s very much like an Irish Coffee.
You can find this creamy concoction at most liquor stores in the United States, next to the Bailey’s. The flavors are quite similar, which makes this drink the perfect nod to Saint Patrick’s Day, South Africa-style.
Amaurula is made from Marula fruit.
Which brings me full circle, back to the drunk elephants.
I’m not sure I can do it justice… so watch for yourself what happens when the elephants (and other animals) feast on the fruit of this treat.
Oh boy, oh boy, oh boy.
(The hungover orangutan is too funny)
3 parts brewed coffee
1 part Amarula
brown sugar, to taste
whipped cream, to taste
garnish with cinnamon, if desired
Um. Brew. Mix. Sweeten. Dollop.
Seriously – that’s it.
To be more specific… Brew the coffee, mix the Amarula in, sweeten with brown sugar and dollop with a happy spoonful of whipped cream.
So enjoy, or “Smaaklike ete!” (Afrikaans for “Bon Appetit”)
