White Nile Martini
1 oz amarula
1/2 oz triple sec
1/2 oz creme de cacao
1/2 oz vodka
dash of cinnamon
Absolutely divine. Amarula fruit cream is made from a fruit found in Africa. Only elephants are known to eat the fruit because they can reach the top branches of the Marula tree, where the fruit is grown. Whoa! Who knew drinking could be so educational?!
Strong (will it ‘tusk’ you up? haha..) Yes, but not before bloating you.
Tastiness (IS IT LIKE DESSERT????) IT IS LIKE DESSERT!!!!! I’m like, those elephants sure know their shit.
Difficulty (if you do it wrong will everything be ruined?) Nope. Amarula is good with anything or nothing. Plus, I am pretty sure I over poured the creme de cacao and under poured the vodka by accident. (And when I say, “pretty sure,” I mean, “most definitely, there is no doubt in my mind.” And when I say, “under poured the vodka by accident,” I mean, “intentionally over poured.” I call it ‘Martini-stic’ licence.. haha)
Overall (what is it good for?) I would move to Africa and become what is known as an ‘elephant whisperer.’ This way, I would be able to forget my ordinary life as an alcoholic, and live with the elephants in South Africa. They would teach me the ways of the savanna and once I gained their trust, they could help me up to the tallest branches of the Marula tree, and I would taste Marula fruit from the source. Then come home and make another martini!!!!!!! So, yes. I like it.
