The Springbokkie Shot is a green and gold drink that is as proudly South African as the animal it is named after. Layering it, makes a pretty shot that is creamy with a delicious hint of mint.
30ml peppermint liqueur
30 ml amarula cream liqueur
Pour the peppermint liqueur into shot glass. Using a spoon held against the side of the shot glass, pour the amarula onto the spoon, thus floating the amarula ontop of the peppermint liqueur.
Amarula Cherry Pop
15 ml Amarula
7.5 ml Oude Meester Peppermint Liqueur
7.5 ml maraschino cherry syrup
In a double-shot glass, first pour the cherry syrup. Then, over a teaspoon, gently pour the peppermint liqueur followed by the Amarula so that distinct layers are formed between each. Garnish with a maraschino cherry. Drink all at once to taste the combined flavours.
Amarula Citrus Passion
30 ml Amarula
15 ml Cointreau
30 ml passion fruit curd (available from fine food stores or alternatively, use Yogi Sip passion fruit flavor or other passion fruit-flavoured drinking yoghurt)
30 ml orange syrup (see recipe below)
2 tbs white chocolate ganache (see recipe below)
Add the Amarula, Cointreau, passion fruit curd, orange syrup and white chocolate ganache to a cocktail shaker, blender or sealed container and insert a few ice cubes. Close the container and shake or blend until smooth. Strain into a high-ball glass and garnish with a twist of orange zest.
250 ml pure orange juice
50 g sugar
Bring the orange juice and sugar to the boil for five minutes and then leave to cool.
White chocolate ganache
200 g white chocolate, broken into pieces
300 ml fresh cream
Heat the cream in a microwave or on the stove until it reaches boiling point. Pour the hot cream over the white chocolate and combine with a spoon until the mixture is smooth and silky.
