This Saturday: First Light Festival in Old Greenwich

We are gearing up for the annual First Light Festival… the garlands, the trees, and lights are up.  This year Cook and Craft  is partnering with African Portfolio, the 2009 pick by National Geographic Adventure Magazine as one of the Best Adventure Travel Company.

African Portfolio will be showcasing Amarula Liquor, made from the fruits of Marula tree which only grows on the plains of Africa.  Apparently Marula fruit is often enjoyed by elephants, hence the elephants on Amarula’s labels.  The Marula fruits ferment a bit after lying on the ground and the elephants do get slightly tipsy from eating them.  We wonder if African Portfolio shows drunk elephants on their safari trips… that would be a sight!

Amarula would also be a great drink for the holidays, and First Light Festival is the perfect time to come and try it.

This is a real quick recipe you can try:

“Amarula Coffee Surprise”

4 shots of Nespresso espresso (or 4 cups strong filter coffee)

60 ml  (that’s 2 shots) Amarula Liquor

50 ml whipped cream
