Add a bit of glitz and glamour to your life with these cocktails 

Calling all alcohol aficionados, we have the drinks you need to try! From garden to glass, each drink features Amarula, which is made from the organic fruit of the Marula tree; a fruit elephants have been known to walk miles for just to have a taste and we’d walk miles for it too! 

The Marula tree is steeped in African myth and folklore locals regard the tree as sacred, and believe that the fruit, leaves and bark have medicinal powers for health and fertility. The Marula tree grows across Africa’s subequatorial plains.  

Perfect to add a bit of glamour to your Saturday night, or even weekday night, nothing hits the spot quite like a creamy pick-me-up. Sit back and sip on one of these delights!
